The National Fire Protection Association states,
“Heating is the second leading cause of U.S. home fires, deaths and injuries. December, January and February are the peak months for heating fires. Space heaters are the type of equipment most often involved in home heating equipment fires, figuring in two of every five fires (40%)” – NFPA
While we always recommend using your furnace or primary heating system to keep you comfortable, space heaters are often used by customers in one room to accommodate those who require more heat in a small space for comfort. Space heater designs have improved and many are safer than the models in years past, but it is important to follow the steps recommended by the NFPA to prevent fires in your home.
Having your furnace checked before or during each winter season is the best way to ensure the safety and efficiency of your system. There are a few potential issues that can arise over time that can be easily detected upon early inspection. Our technicians always are available to check and maintain your system.
