Check your heater for electrical safety

Check your heater for electrical safety

When pulling your heater out of storage each year, be sure to give it a once over safety check and make sure there are no expired wires or loose power cord connections.  

Gas heaters should have adequate ventilation as the carbon monoxide produced when gas is burnt is odourless, colourless and deadly.

 

Gas heaters should be serviced regularly by a qualified technician to guarantee there are no carbon monoxide leaks.

• Heaters should be placed on a flat, level surface.

• Never use a gas heater or BBQ made for outdoor use inside your home.

• Always supervise children and pets when heaters are in use.

• Keep heaters well clear from items that might burn. A minimum of one-metre clearance from clothes, bedding, furniture, curtains and other combustibles is recommended.
