As the seasons change, prepare for the heating your home safely by following some simple safety steps.
Have you chimney cleaned and checked before using fireplace or woodstove.
Have you furnace checked and cleaned.
Make sure you dispose of all coals and embers in water, never in plastic bags, paper bags or cardboard boxes. Embers can remain hot for several days. Do not store embers inside of house, garage or outbuildings.
Make sure you have working carbon monoxide detectors in addition to your smoke alarms.
Have a Safe Fall Season!
