Stay Warm and Safe This Winter

With the winter season we all tend to spend the majority of our time inside trying to stay warm. While sometimes curling up with a blanket and drinking hot tea will do the trick, Norrell Service Experts is here with some tips on how to stay warm (and safe!) this season. 

Install Carbon Monoxide Detectors 

Confirm you have carbon monoxide (CO) detectors installed on each floor of your home, especially near bedrooms, and test them to make sure they are functioning. Since CO does not have a smell and cannot be detected, it’s important that you have operating CO detectors to make sure your home is safe. 

Get Your Chimney Inspection 

This is the perfect time of year to get the fireplace going, but before you do, be sure you have your chimney cleaned and checked by an expert. The fireplace may be a source of CO if you don’t keep it regularly cleaned and maintained. 

Be Careful with Space Heaters 
 
Space heaters are generally safe, energy efficient, and an effective way to heat small sections of your home, but make sure it has been approved by a recognized testing laboratory and contains an automatic shut-off feature. Observe all manufacturer’s instructions and make sure it is placed on a hard, level surface at least 36 inches away from any flammable products. 

Furnace Tune-Up 

With a heating tune-up from Norrell Service Experts in Birmingham, we will perform a safety check of your heating system to make sure there are no leaks or carbon monoxide issues. Along with a heating tune-up, verify your heating vents are not blocked and that you’re replacing your air filter every 30 days. This will avoid the air flow from becoming restricted and help prevent allergens from exacerbating respiratory issues. 

 
If You Need Help Staying Warm, Ask 

There are right ways and wrong ways to make sure your home is heated – using the oven, a grill, or a camp stove are all wrong ways. Using these devices to heat your home could create a fire or a dangerous reserve of carbon monoxide.
