Top safety tips for heating your home during cold weather!

Brought to you by Stonewall insurance Agency: As we gear up for the winter season, here are a few safety precautions courtesy of The Canada Safety Council to help minimize the risk of house fires when heating your home.1.Regular maintenance of all heating systems, including furnaces, by licensed technicians is important in reducing the risk of a residential fire.2.Do not dry clothes or shoes on or near a heater. Turn the heater off when you are not in the room, and do not leave children or pets unsupervised with a heater that is turned on.3.Periodically inspect the heater’s cord for damage and frayed or exposed wires, and do not use the appliance if any damage is present.4.If you use a fireplace or wood stove for heat, build your fire with a small amount of dry, seasoned wood to keep the flames under control.5.Resist the temptation to overload your fireplace or stove. Burning too much wood at once can cause tar and creosote to build up in your chimney or stove pipes, which creates a fire hazard.6.Never use highly flammable materials such as wrapping paper or gasoline in a wood stove or fireplace.7.Have a three-foot "kid-free zone" around open fires and space heaters.
