Safety First We understand you’re cold but using anything other than your furnace to heat your home could be hazardous or deadly. Never use any heating methods that are created for outdoor use such as outdoor grills or kerosene heaters, they generate carbon monoxide. If you have a wood stove, an electric space heater or a fireplace, those are all acceptable heating options. Ideally you won’t have to deal with a furnace breakdown this season, but if you do the pros at Air Quality Solutions are ready to help.
