In 2010, fires caused by defective home cooling equipment resulted in a loss of $207 million in direct property damage, 249 civilian injuries, and 29 civilian deaths. The loss associated with house fires can be seriously damaging, especially if it resulted from a defective home cooling appliance.

To keep your home safe from fire, follow these three easy steps in regard to home cooling appliances:

  1. Use the equipment in accordance with the manufacturer’s guide
  2. Inspect the appliances regularly and before use
  3. Ensure that the home cooling appliance you are using is tested by a recognized testing laboratory
