Keeping you warm isn't our only goal at Sound Energy, it's also to ensure the safety of you and everyone inside your home. Consider these safety tips to protect you and your family while enjoying the comfort of your heating system.
Winter Safety Tips for your Home
- Check your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors. Be sure to replace the batteries in your detectors so they are able to properly function and keep you safe.
- Replace your air filters and have your vents cleaned. Air filters should be checked monthly and replaced if necessary. Cleaning your vents and changing your air filters can allow you and your family to breathe healthier and cleaner air inside your home.
- Clear your driveway and paths of snow or other debris. Keeping your driveway and paths clear is important to protect people like our postal workers and emergency responders. It also ensures that our delivery and service technicians can safely keep your heating system in top shape.
- Have a plan for emergencies. In the event of a fire, be sure to have an evacuation plan in place. Know the number of your local fire department or simply dial 911 to alert them of the situation and send help right away.
