As we move into October, it’s a good time to focus on safety in your home. Here are a few tasks you can do this month to keep your AC/heating system running smoothly and your home safe:
- Check and test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. These are important safety devices that can help alert you to any potential dangers in your home. Test them regularly to make sure they are working properly, and replace the batteries if needed.
- Check your home’s emergency exits and make sure they are clear and easily accessible. In the event of an emergency, it’s important to have a clear escape route.
- Review and update your home’s fire safety plan. Make sure everyone in your household knows what to do in the event of a fire, and practice your plan regularly.
By taking care of these tasks in October, you can help ensure the safety of your home and family
