Holiday Preparations: Who checked the oven/heater?

Better safe than sorry… That’s what they say right? Well it’s what I like to go by. The holidays are bittersweet for me, mostly because it seems to be one minor disaster after another.  But I say let’s change it up this year!

For most of us in the southern climates it’s only once in a blue moon that we use our heater and then there are some of us that never cook and we eat pre-made meals (I love my microwave). However, you cannot always rely on something working if you don’t use it daily or even once awhile.  Let us help you with that.

It’s a great idea to test your oven before Thanksgiving Day weekend to ensure everything is in working order to avoid any delays.  If you find your oven is not working/heating properly, contact your Camden community.

Stay Warm:

With our temperate climate in the south, heating systems can go unused for many months. After sitting idle during our long stretches of warm weather, some elements of your heating system may have accumulated a layer of dust. When you turn on your heat for the first time during the fall/winter season, that dust will burn off and emit an odor that circulates through your duct work and into your apartment home. These are the most likely causes of the burning smell in your apartment home at the beginning of the season. So open your windows and turn on the fan, allow 15 minutes for it to fade away. If it continues to smell/smoke contact your Camden community.

Let’s us help you make this a positive holiday experience with these simple tips.
