Protect Your Family and Home this Winter

December 13, 2022

The heating season is officially in full swing, and winter storms will be here any day now. Tomasso Bros. Oil Online strives to ensure your family is kept safe and comfortable this holiday season. Consider these safety tips to protect yourself, your family, and your home during the harsh winter months.

Winter Safety Tips for Your Home

  • Clear your driveway and paths of snow or other debris. When snow starts to accumulate, be sure to clear a path to your home’s entryways, fill pipes, and fuel storage tanks. Clearing driveways and paths can allow first responders to quickly reach your property in the event of an emergency. It also allows guests to safely reach your home as well as postal workers or our fuel delivery drivers to efficiently complete your deliveries.
  • Check your CO2 and smoke detectors. Be sure to replace the batteries in your detectors so they are able to properly function and keep you safe.
  • Replace your air filters and have your vents cleaned. Air filters should be checked monthly and replaced if necessary. Dirty air filters or vents can cause your HVAC equipment to work twice as hard, wasting energy and money. Additionally, changing your air filters and cleaning your vents can allow you and your family to breathe healthier, cleaner air. If you are in need of indoor air quality solutions, our sister company, Tomasso Bros. Energy, is an expert in HVAC technology and solutions.
  • Have a plan for emergencies. In the event of a fire, be sure to have an evacuation plan in place. Know the phone number of your local fire department or simply dial 911 to alert them of the situation and send help right away.
