Tips on How to Heat Your Home Safely:

  • If you use a space heater, keep it at least three feet away from anything flammable including: bedding, mattresses, clothing, and upholstered furniture. Heating  equipment not being used properly is the leading cause of home fire deaths.
  • Make sure children and animals stay away from space heaters and fireplaces.
  • Turn portable heaters off when you leave the room or go to sleep. Don't keep them on all night.
  • Always use a screen in front of your fireplace and have your chimney professionally cleaned annually. Douse any fire or coals before you go to sleep or if you leave the house. 
  • Never heat your home with your stove or oven.
  • Be sure that your smoke detectors are installed properly and tested to ensure they are working properly.
