Winter Safety Recommendations

  • All CO2 and Smoke Detectors Should Be Checked: Be sure to replace the batteries in your detectors so they can function properly and protect you.
  • Replace Your Air Filters & Have Your Vents Cleaned:  Your air filters should be checked monthly and replaced if necessary. Dirty air filters and vents can cause your HVAC equipment to work twice as hard, wasting energy and money. More importantly, dirty air filters or vents can worsen conditions for those with asthma, allergies, or other respiratory problems. Contact Tomasso Bros. Energy if you’re concerned with your home’s indoor air quality.
  • Clear Paths and Driveways of Snow or Other Debris: During winter snowstorms, be sure to clear snow from any paths or driveways leading to your home’s entryways, fill pipes, or fuel storage tanks. This way, first responders can quickly reach you in the event of an emergency. It also allows postal workers and our delivery drivers to efficiently make deliveries and any other guests to safely reach your property.
  • Know the Smell of Natural Gas: If your home uses natural gas, it is important to know the smell in case a leak was to occur. Natural gas is treated with an additive to make it smell similar to rotten eggs or skunks spray to alert you of a leak. Be sure to evacuate the area immediately, then dial 911 if you smell gas. Do not return to the area until the fire department says it is safe to do so.
  • Be Prepared for Emergencies: If there is a fire, be sure to have an evacuation plan in place. Know the number of your local fire department, or simply dial 911 to have help sent over right away.
  • Have Your Heating Equipment Inspected: A heating system tune-up can improve the efficiency of your equipment and also ensure it can perform safely. Tomasso Bros. Energy is a heating equipment expert and can perform any maintenance or repairs to improve the performance of your heating system. Contact Tomasso Bros. Energy if your heating equipment is acting up.
