At home we pay great attention to safety in numerous respects, always ensuring our family aren’t at risk. According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), every year in the UK over 5,000 people die in accidents in the home and 2.7 million attend accident and emergency departments seeking treatment.
Precisely why we make sure doors and windows are kept secure, pans are never left on the boil, blind cords dealt with and household products such as cleaning substances are kept out of reach and used safely.
But how much attention do we pay to the safety of our heating systems? What about the threat of carbon monoxide and gas leaks?
Is your Heating safe?
If you operate a gas heating system then you’ll need to include its safety within your household checks. Systems that aren’t operating efficiently or that have faults can pose a serious health hazard. You’ll need to have them serviced regularly, and invest in carbon monoxide monitors to ensure no dangerous gases are escaping into your living environment.
On the other hand, you could switch to an electric heating system. Electric heaters don’t burn fuel internally in order to generate heat, and the associated safety hazards, such as explosions, carbon monoxide poisoning and gas leaks are all non-existent.
And there are more benefits. With pretty much no moving parts to break down or wear out, you can rely on electric heating much more so than its gas counterpart.
So if home safety is high on your agenda, why not consider making a move to electric heating?
