Baby Safety: How to Keep Your Home, HVAC, and Kiddos Safe

September 17, 2019 | Blog

HVAC system babyproofingAs a parent, there are many dangers you need to protect your children from. Toddlers and younger children can be quite adventurous and many are naturally curious as well. When considering dangers around the home don’t overlook your home’s HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system. The following HVAC system babyproofing tips can help make your home safer.   

Three HVAC System Babyproofing Tips

  • Thermostat Locations: a child can easily set your home’s temperature to extreme highs or lows when playing with a thermostat which can have negative monetary and health impacts. Have your thermostat placed high up to prevent your child from reaching it and protect them from the health issues extreme heat and cold can cause.
  • Vent Safety: your home’s vent ducts can be dangerous to a small child as loose vent covers can be removed causing a child to get stuck or injure themselves in a now exposed vent duct. Secure your vent covers with screws, nails, or velcro (if you want to avoid pointed edges) to prevent easy access. Internal mesh netting can also reduce danger without blocking your HVAC system’s airflow. Also, consider replacing any metal vent covers you have with plastic ones to prevent potential cuts and scrapes.
  • Securing the Outside Unit: your HVAC systems outside the unit can be very dangerous to children. The internal blades are quite sharp and in addition to that, it can also be an electrical hazard to a curious child. Placing bushes or a fence around the outdoor unit can keep your children away from it but be sure to give the outside unit enough room for proper airflow.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
