We want to make sure that your safety isn’t compromised with everything that is going on.

We aren’t just talking about washing your hands frequently while preparing dinner. It is important to make sure that your home is a safe and comfortable place for both your and your guests. You can ensure that your house is the place to be this season with these tips and our help when services are needed.

Tips To Keep Your Home Safe and Comfortable This Season

The last thing you want to do is put anyone in your home at risk. Unfortunately, a large variety of injuries do happen in winter, with a large number being attributed to heating system issues. Thankfully you can protect your home and your health with these tips.

1. Check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors

All too often, people think of the smoke detector or carbon monoxide detector in their home as something that occasionally annoys them with loud beeping when its batteries get low. The truth is that these systems are vital to keeping your home and your loved ones safe should something pop up. These detectors can alert you to trouble if you have a gas appliance such as your furnace that is leaking gas, or a fire that pops up in the house. Make sure that your smoke and CO detectors have full batteries and run a test to make sure they are ready to protect your home before your guests arrive.

2. Make sure your heater gets a tune-up

We strongly advise everyone to get a heating system tune-up each year for a reason. This service can make sure that your heater is running effectively, efficiently, and safely before problems appear that could impact your safety and comfort. For example, maintenance can help reduce the impact of wear and tear on your furnace to reduce the chances that it will develop a cracked heat exchanger.

3. Schedule repairs in a timely manner

Last but certainly not least, address your heating repair in Egg Harbor Township, NJ as soon as you can. Whether you have a heat pump or a furnace, you need to make sure that your repairs are handled quickly and performed by a trained professional. The truth is trying to perform DIY repairs or leaving them up to an amateur can create a safety hazard rather than solving it.

Your home comfort is important to us and so is your comfort. When you need help making sure that your heating system is in good working order, you should reach out to a professional like the ones at Elliott-McElwee, Inc.
