Daylight Savings Traditions Your Family Needs to Adopt



clock-1196246 (1)It’s that time of year again – time to roll back the clocks and get an extra hour of sleep. But don’t think your to do list ends at resetting your clocks. Here’s a few chores to add to your list – the safety of your family and home depends on them!

Replace batteries

If you’re lucky, your smoke detector and carbon monoxide detectors stay silent every year. But just because you don’t hear them doesn’t mean they’re not working. That’s why it’s so important to replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. It can be hard to remember to this chore, so why not make it a new Daylight Savings tradition?

Check for recalls

Thousands of cars are recalled every year for safety issues, but many people don’t hear about them until it’s too late. Unchecked recalls can spell disaster, injuries, even death. By keeping at eye on recalls, you’ll ensure your vehicle is in great shape. And looking to see if your car is included in a recall is easy. Just visit the VIN look-up site at safercar.gov.

Get your furnace inspected

Your furnace needs inspected twice yearly to ensure it is running in top shape. Schedule an appointment for an expert to come take a look at yours every Daylight Savings Day and you’ll protect your family from potential carbon monoxide poisoning.

Get your fireplace cleaned

A dirty fireplace isn’t just unsightly, it can be downright dangerous. Like your furnace, when your fireplace is neglected, it becomes a real safety hazard! It could be putting off dangerous carbon monoxide that can poison your family. Schedule a chimney sweep to come visit!
