As the holiday season is quickly approaching, MBH Mechanical & Electrical would like to wish you and your family a very safe, and happy holiday!
With so many things demanding our attention leading up to the holidays, it's easy to forget about some of these important maintenance tips to ensure you and your family are safe this year.

1. Remember to inspect all of your Christmas lighting prior to installation. Broken, frayed, melted, or otherwise damaged extension cords and lighting strings are a recipe for electrical shock injury or fire.

2.Don't be a Griswald! Overloading your electrical circuits can cause serious internal damage to the house wiring, including heat damage to the receptacles (especially when multi-gang adapters are used), heat stress on the conductors (which cause the wire insulation to become brittle), and even damage to your electrical panel. If it seems like there might be too many cords connected, there probably are!

3.If you haven't already had your furnace maintenance inspection for the year, remember to call and book your appointment! Furnace maintenance is extremely important as we head towards the colder weather, not only to ensure proper operation, but also to avoid carbon monoxide issues. 

4.Fireplaces also need to be inspected annually. These beautiful appliances can quickly become silent killers if not properly maintained.

5.Lastly, remember to check your smoke and CO detectors. In the province of Ontario, it is now law to have smoke detectors on every floor of your home, and also a CO detector outside each sleeping area (ie: hallway for bedrooms in upper and basement floors). All detectors now come with a date stamp which approves the appliance for 10 years of service. Make sure to change your detectors if there is no date stamp or if it has expired.

Have a wonderful holiday season!
