Winter is closing in quickly, and it's important to have your home and heating system ready. After all, you and your family will be spending a lot more time indoors and rely on your heating system for comfort and safety. Here are some things to remember to do to keep your home safe and warm this winter.
Once a year, have your furnace, vents, flues and chimneys inspected by a qualified service professional.
Plug portable space heaters directly into an outlet, not with an extension cord, and make sure they stay at least three feet from anything that can burn such as curtains, paper and furniture. Look for models that have an automatic shut-off.
