Did COVID-19 affect the way we detect smoke at home?
Smoke alarms have certainly not been damaged by the pandemic but plenty of COVID positive people have reported the temporary loss of smell. This COVID side effect emphasizes the importance of regularly testing your smoke alarms at home.
Prevent harm and test your alarm.
Safe Use of Space Heaters
With winter weather means space heaters. Be sure you are using portable space heaters correctly.
- Always plug it directly into an outlet.
- Keep the heater at least 3 feet from combustible material.
- Never use a power strip or extension cord.
- Never use a gas heater or oven to heat your home.
Remember if you have a furnace, SDG&E will check it for free, just ask!
