Prepping for winter is important

Posted On Thu, November 10, 2011

A recent announcement from home insurance company Amica noted that homeowners should do what they can to ensure their heating systems are safe.

Heating systems should be checked often by professionals in order to make sure they are working correctly, the company said. In addition, ensure nothing around the heat source is flammable and it has an ability to ventilate. In addition, have a fire extinguisher handy and never use a gas range to heat the house.

"Whether you're using wood stoves, space heaters or another type of heating source, make sure you’re using them safely to prevent fires and carbon monoxide poisoning," said Sean Welch, a senior assistant vice president with Amica. "It doesn’t matter what type of fuel you use to heat your home, you need to make sure it will keep your family safe and warm this winter."

While making sure that the home is safe is important, accidents do happen. Consumers should do what they can to make sure that they have adequate coverage. In order to make this easier, going online and comparing home insurance quotes may be the best way to save money and get the necessary coverage.
