Heating Safety Tips for the Holidays

holiday heating safety tips

When you think of the holidays, you often think of cold weather. Although our winters are relatively mild here, we’ve usually had at least one cold snap by the time December arrives.  However, before you turn on your heat, you need to think about safety. As your local service for heating and air in Rock Hill, SC, Comfort Zone of The Carolinas has some holiday heating safety tips for you:

  • Get your heating system professionally inspected – Before you turn on your heat pump or furnace, make sure to call for a professional check-up. A professional contractor like ours that offers service for both heating and air in Rock Hill, SC can catch any problems before they keep your heat from working when you need it most.
  • Keep flammable objects away from any heating equipment – Keep trees, wreaths, gifts, and other flammable items far away from any heating equipment, especially space heaters or open flames.
  • Understand the dangers of candles, matches, and ovens – Never leave candles unattended and always blow them out before you go to bed. Hide all matches and lighters in hard-to-reach areas so your children can’t get them. Never use an oven to heat your home as this can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning or a fire.
  • Test all alarms – Make sure to test all of your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. These alarms will quickly alert you of danger so you and your family can escape. You want these devices to be in working order all year but especially during the holidays.
