Safety Tips

Auxiliary Heating Sources

As the season of cold nights has arrived and people begin using auxiliary heating sources, we would like to remind everyone to be safe. Remember to have chimneys and flues cleaned and inspected. Only burn seasoned firewood, as green wood can lead to a buildup of cresote, which can cause a fire. Never burn scrap lumber, tires, or plastics. This can cause extreame heat that can result in a failure of the appliance or the chimney/flue. It can also give off hazardous gases. Fires should not be left unattended. If you use a space heater, it should be plugged directly into a wall outlet rated for the power required of the heater. They should never be plugged into an extension cord. Space heaters should never be left unattended and should not be operated longer than the manufacture recommends. Operating for too long of a period can lead to a failure and fire. And if you haven't changed your smoke and carbon monoxide alarm batteries, now is the time! Stay safe!
