Heating Hazards - Savannah Fire Safety Tips

12/29/2016 (Permalink)

The winter season is here.  Even though Savannah usually has mild winters, there is still a need for heating homes or businesses at some point during the winter months.  

Remember these tips when heating your Savannah home or business:

  • Keep anything flammable at least three feet away from heating equipment, like the furnace, fireplace, wood stove, or a portable space heater.  Have a three foot "kid-free" zone around open fires and space heaters. 
  • Make sure the fireplace has a sturdy screen to stop sparks from flying into the room. Ashes should be completely cooled before putting them in a metal container.  Keep the container a safe distance away from the home.  
  • Remember to turn portable heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed. 
  • Always us the right kind of fuel, specified by the manufacturer, for fuel burning space heaters. 
  • Have heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional. 
  • Have a qualified professional install stationary space heating equipment, water heaters or central heating equipment according to the local codes and manufacturer's instructions. 
  • Test smoke alarms monthly.
