With the winter season we all tend to spend more time indoors trying to stay warm. While sometimes snuggling in bed and drinking coffee will do the trick, Atmostemp Service Experts is here with some tips on how to stay warm (and safe!) this winter.
Install Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Make sure you have carbon monoxide (CO) detectors installed on all floors of your home, particularly near bedrooms, and test them to make sure they are functioning. Since CO is an odorless gas and cannot be detected, it’s crucial that you have functioning CO detectors to make sure your family is safe.
Get Your Chimney Inspection
This is the perfect time of year to get the fireplace roaring, but before you do, make sure you have your chimney cleaned and inspected by an expert. The fireplace can be a source of CO if you don’t keep it properly cleaned and maintained.
Be Careful with Space Heaters
Space heaters are generally safe, energy efficient, and an effective way to heat small areas of your home, but make sure it has been sanctioned by a recognized testing laboratory and comes with an automatic shut-off feature. Obey all manufacturer’s instructions and make sure it is placed on a hard, level surface at least three feet away from any flammable products.

This will keep the air flow unrestricted and help avoid allergens from aggravating respiratory issues.
