Safety is never far from many of our minds. When we come to your home to service your HVAC systems, your safety is always a priority along with your comfort. That is why we want to make sure that your home is going to be optimally safe this month.
To help, we’ve provided some great safety tips below for you to check out. Using these and other best practices you can ensure that your home is a safe place to be as we round out the year.
- Remember to wash your hands. Did you know that today is the last day of National Handwashing Week? This is an awareness week dedicated to teaching people about the importance of washing your hands to help stop the spread of germs and reduce illnesses. Especially now, that is an important thing to do! Make sure you brush up on your hand washing technique so you can keep yourself and others safe this winter.
- Keep gatherings small or virtual. After a long year largely spent at home, many of us are craving time with family and friends. Sadly, it is still a good idea, and a safer one, to keep gatherings to a minimum or to keep them virtual. These and other COVID-19 safety measures can be found on the CDC website.
- Check your smoke and CO detectors. Smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors are around to help keep you and others in your home safe. These systems can pick up on the presence of smoke or CO before you do and will warn you about it in time to prevent harm. Make sure to take time to check that your smoke and CO detectors have working batteries and are in good shape to do their job.
- Consider an electrical panel upgrade. How old is your electrical panel? If it is getting on in years and is struggling to meet your electrical demands, it may be time to consider an upgrade.
- See if a generator would be a good addition to your home. Have you had power outages before? These can be both an inconvenience and a safety hazard. Avoid these issues with a whole-house generator that will kick on when it senses an interruption with your electricity.
- Have an electrician check you home’s wiring. If you have old, frayed wiring in your home it can cause a variety of problems ranging from flickering lights, burnt outlets, and even an increased risk of electrical fires. If you’ve noticed problems with your wiring, you can reach out to a professional to address it.
- Install surge protectors. Surge protectors can be the last line of defense for your appliances and your home when there is a power surge. Make sure you have an electrician in Hart County, GA install these additions to your electrical system so they provide optimal protection.
