Safety Checklist for Holiday Entertaining

"Sorry, we're closed" sign

That magical time of year has arrived when homes will be filled with family and friends. With so much to be thankful for, we want to ensure your home is ready for the entertaining season beyond HVAC and plumbing maintenance. Therefore, we compiled a list of some of the top safety precautions to consider before the Thanksgiving turkey arrives on the table.

Fire Safety

This season is often marked by temporary electrical decorations. Be sure to follow these safety precautions to help keep your family safe.

  • Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors monthly.
  • Ensure you have installed a smoke alarm inside each bedroom, outside each sleeping area, in the kitchen, and on each floor of the home, including the attic and basement.
  • Avoid overloading electrical outlets.
  • Never run extension cords under rugs or carpets.
  • Keep decorations at least three feet from sources of heat.
  • Unplug all electrical decorations before leaving the home or going to sleep.

Cooking Safety

With holiday feasts being cooked in the kitchen and the recent influx of deep-fried turkeys happening outside, it’s important to use some additional safety precautions when cooking.

  • Stay in the kitchen when frying, grilling, or broiling, and never leave the house with the oven on.
  • Keep children at least three feet away from cooking appliances.
  • Be careful to keep pot holders, towels, and curtains away from heating elements.
  • Remain aware of your clothing and hair to be sure it doesn’t catch fire.
  • Maintain a safe distance from the home when deep frying a turkey, and follow the manufacturer instructions. Never use a deep fryer in a house, garage, or under a carport.

Heat Safety

Anytime you have a heating element in a home, you have an increased risk of fire. Therefore, it’s important to ensure you are taking the proper safety precautions when heating your home.

  • Have your heating system inspected at the beginning of the winter season.
  • Never leave a space heater running in an empty room or overnight.
  • Never leave a lit fireplace unattended.
  • Reduce the temperature of your hot water heater to 120 degrees to reduce the risk of scalding.

Very responsive – called to request service on a Monday morning and repairman arrived after lunch the next day. Service was excellent. Technician was professional and knowledgeable. Every step of the repair process was explained. AC unit is now working efficiently. Recommendations were made but did not push us to purchase other services or parts. Would 100% recommend!


Just Right was able to come within a few hours- helpful when the A/C is broken and its 90 degrees. The team were really nice, courteous guys who explained everything to me and provided an estimate to sign before proceeding with the work. Our A/C was up and running within an hour at a reasonable price. Thank you!


Great HVAC Repair company! They answered when I called this morning and in the middle of Summer had a repair person out this afternoon. Our repair guy Robert May was incredibly nice, professional, and did a great job of explaining what was wrong as he fixed it. Now our AC is working perfectly!
