3 WAYS TO PREPARE FOR WINTER

STAY WARM AND STAY SAFE

Never use your oven for heat. Space heaters can cause fires, so don’t place them near curtains or things that can catch fire. Remember to turn them off before going to bed. Clear exhaust vents to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning, and check for working carbon monoxide and smoke detectors

 

Renters: Heating problems?

First alert your landlord. If your landlord is unresponsive, call 311 to report and Inspectional Services Division will investigate. Your unit must be heated to at least 68 degrees during the day and 64 degrees at night.

Need help paying for heat?

Apply for help through the state’s Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. Visitboston.gov/homeheating or call 617-357-6012.
