New Year's Fire Safety Resolution: Stay Safe from Home Fires

Whatever kind of ride the current year gave you, whether it be smooth, bumpy, depressive or ecstatic, New Year’s Eve presents us with an opportunity for a send off party to year that you hopefully loved.

Fireworks, champagne and midnight smooching are perfect ways to watch the year die off while welcoming a new year full of positivity and possibilities. No matter what your responsible plans for the New Year may be, it’s without a doubt that on NYE, we all plan to have some fun. Lots of it. Only about 78% of that fun will be responsible fun.

This kind of fun often requires us to leave the house in a frenzy to meet up with friends and family, so it’s important not to get reckless when it comes to lights and appliances.

Just the thought of it puts a damper on your festivities, right?

The History Of Water Heaters (Geysers)

The History Of Water Heaters or Geysers:

The water heater has been around for so long now that in today’s society it is mostly taken for granted.  However, hot water for bathing is a luxury that once was reserved only for the elite.

The first reports of people using warm baths came out of Rome which is of little surprise as the Romans are credited with having invented plumbing and aqueducts that carried fresh water in and waster out of the city.  They were master engineers.  Around 300 AD, large soaking tubs of heated water were being introduced in the great bathhouses of Rome.

For centuries the only way to have a hot bath was to heat water on a stove or by burning wood and hanging pots of water over the fire until hot.  This hot water was then poured into wooden or metal tubs for bathing.
