Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
Crossfire Alarms out of the Dallas metroplex, is warning people of the dangers of turning on their heaters after the hot summer. In preparation for National Fire Prevention Week October 11-15, the manufacturer of Crossfire Alarms believe this time of year it is important to stress the everyday fire dangers we encounter, especially the dangers of turning on a heater before having it properly inspected or repaired.
There are multiple different types of heating devices available and no matter which kind is in the home, Crossfire Alarms stresses having a certified HVAC (heating, venting and air conditioning) contractor stop by to give a proper safety inspection. The spring and summer months provide ample time for heaters to malfunction or develop other issues. It is important to verify that each heating device in the home is in proper working order.
Crossfire believes that, in addition to checking heating devices, it is important to have an HVAC contractor clean, inspect and repair central heating systems. This will include going through vents to ensure there are no blockages or damage to the heating ventilation system.
In addition to having heating systems checked, Crossfire Alarms believes in having carbon monoxide detectors tested to ensure they work properly with the most efficiency. Crossfire Alarms carbon monoxide detectors offer the fastest response time to warn families of a carbon monoxide leak in the home. Heating systems are one of the biggest culprits of carbon monoxide leaks, making it much more important to check the proper operation of carbon monoxide detectors before a heater is turned on.
