A lot of people will be curling up near their space heaters on chilly nights. However, space heaters can become a fire hazard if you do not exercise caution around them. Fortunately, there are ways to keep your home safe. Remove any flammable materials that are within 3 feet of the space heater. Also, you should never plug a space heater into an extension cord.
Even though the mercury is dropping, home fires are still a possibility. When is the last time you inspected your smoke detector? If you cannot remember, it’s probably an indication that you should take a look. Smoke detectors usually have a life span of 10 years. If your smoke detector is older than that, it might be time to invest in a new one.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
You will be relying on your furnace to keep you warm this winter. Furnaces can leak carbon monoxide–a colorless and odorless gas that is extremely harmful to your health. Unfortunately, a smoke detector will not alert you when the carbon monoxide levels have gone off kilter. Installing a carbon monoxide detector in your home is a measure you can take to keep you and your family safe this winter.

Long Islanders have seen their fair share of storms. As power companies struggle to restore power outages after a storm, many Long Islanders find themselves powerless in the dark. Electricity is no longer a luxury; it is a necessity that many take for granted. With hurricane season well underway, now is the perfect time to invest in a generator from TFC Electric. Having a generator ensures that you will have power during an outage.
Generators are not only used when powerful storms sweep the island. When a tree haphazardly falls and takes down a power line, it could take days or even weeks for companies to restore power in your area. While your neighbors are still in the dark, your generator supplies you with enough electricity to run the appliances you use on a daily basis.
At TFC Electric, we have stationery and portable generators. Portable generators are great for people who go camping or travel often. Stationery generators are manual or automatic. Manual generators require the homeowner to switch the ‘Power Transfer System’ option on. Conversely, automatic generators turn on immediately once the power goes out.
Since we carry a wide variety of generators, we can help you make an educated decision on which generator is best for your particular home. Generators help homeowners avoid the headache that a power outage brings. It is no wonder why generators are starting to generate some buzz on Long Island. Give us a call at 631-589-2800 and you’ll be on a power trip in no time!
