Stay Warm and Safe This Winter

January 12, 2017

With the cold weather we all tend to spend more time inside trying to stay warm. While sometimes curling up with a blanket and drinking hot cocoa will do the trick, Jack Nelson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple tips on how to stay warm (and safe!) this season.

Install Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Make sure you have carbon monoxide (CO) detectors installed on all floors of your home, specifically near bedrooms, and test them to verify they are operating. Since CO is an odorless gas and cannot be detected, it’s vital that you have operating CO detectors to make sure you are safe.

Get Your Chimney Inspection

This is the perfect time of year to get the fireplace roaring, but before you do, ensure you have your chimney cleaned and inspected 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 a successful way to heat small sections of your home, but verify 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 3 feet away from any flammable items.

Furnace Tune-Up

With a heating tune-up from Jack Nelson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in Tulsa, we will perform a safety check of your heating system to ensure there are no leaks or CO issues. Along with a Precision tune-up, confirm your heating vents are not blocked and that you’re replacing your air filter each month. This will prevent the air flow from becoming restricted and help avoid allergens from aggravating respiratory issues.


If You Need Help Staying Warm, Ask

There are appropriate 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 cause a fire or a dangerous buildup of carbon monoxide.
