Avoid Heating Hazards

Indiana’s winters can be long and brutal, and heating your home is a necessity. Unfortunately, operating heating equipment improperly or carelessly can pose safety hazards and fires. Follow these tips to stay warm, toasty, and safe this season:

  • Install a smoke detector and test it monthly. Smoke detectors save lives!
  • A blocked or poorly maintained furnace can cause a fire. Make sure your vents are clear of any dust or debris, and have a technician perform regular maintenance.
  • Give space heaters their space—keep them a minimum of 3 feet away from anything flammable.
  • Never leave candles unattended, and blow them out before bed.
  • Clean your chimney at least once a year. Blockages can pollute your home’s air and cause a house fire.
