Answer . Every day Americans experience the tragedy of fire. Each year more than 4,000 Americans die in fires and more than 25,000 are injured. Figures show that each year about 300 people are killed and $280 million in property is destroyed in fires attributed to children playing with fire.. The United States Fire Administration (USFA) encourages parents to teach children at an early age about the dangers of fireplay in an effort to prevent child injuries, fire deaths and firesetting behavior in the future. Below are some facts about children and fire safety.. Children under five are curious about fire. Often what begins as a natural exploration of the unknown can lead to tragedy.. Children of all ages set over 100,000 fires annually. Approximately 20,000 of those are set in homes.. Children make up 20% of all fire deaths.. Over 30% of the fires that kill children are set by children playing with fire.. At home, children usually play with fire in bedrooms, in closets and under beds.. These are "secret" places where there are a lot of things that catch fire easily.. Too often, child firesetters are not given proper guidance and supervision by parents and teachers. Consequently, they repeat their firesetting behavior.. Supervise young children closely. Do not leave them alone even for short periods of time.. Keep matches and lighters in a secured drawer or cabinet.. Have your children tell you when they find matches and lighters.. Check under beds and in closets for burned matches, evidence your child may be playing with fire.. Develop a home escape plan, practice it with your children and designate a meeting place outside.. Take the mystery out of fireplay by teaching children that it is a tool, not a toy.. Teach children the nature of fire. It is FAST, HOT, DARK and DEADLY!. Teach children not to hide from firefighters, but to get out quickly and call for help from another location.. Show children how to crawl low on the floor, below the smoke, to get out of the house and stay out in the case of fire.. Demonstrate how to stop, drop to the ground and roll if their clothes catch fire.. Install smoke alarms on every level in your home.. Familiarize children with the sound of your smoke alarm.. Test the smoke alarm each month and replace the battery at least once a year.. Replace the smoke alarm every ten years, or as recommended by the manufacturer.. Finally, having a working smoke alarm dramatically increases your chances of surviving a fire. And remember to practice a home escape plan frequently with your family..

If you shut off the AC when you are gone from the house does it cost more to cool the house back to the right temperature when you return?
With air conditioning systems, the equipment runs at peak efficiency when it operates for long periods. Cooling your house back to the comfortable temperature will use less electricity than the unit would use cycling on and off for short periods to maintain the set temperature. If your house takes too long to get back to a comfortable temperature, you might investigate getting a programmable thermostat, and set it to start heating or cooling your house an hour or so before you return. You could also set the thermostat back, to a lower temperature for heating, or a higher one for cooling, while you are gone, rather than turning it off completely.

Why is cooling a house more expensive than heating it?
Answer . It is not always the case that cooling is more expensive than heating. It depends on the type of system you have and your utility rates. It also varies based on your location. You can find out the most cost effective way to heat and/or cool your home with an advanced load calculation. Then you can decide what type of equipment to use.
Why is a foul odor coming from the cool air return vent when the heat is turned on in the house?
Answer . Can. Answer . Can any animals such as mice, chimpmunks, squirrels get into your chimney or any othe vent opening? Occasionally these things find a way in, usually down the chimney, get trapped and die. Other possibilities include a pet consistiently urnating by a register or return grill, or standing or stagnet water that has been spiled or leeched in and created some variety of mold.. If possible check you chimney where it meets the exhaust from your furnace or gas water heater, remove your air filter and inspect as much visually and scent to determine the area.. You can try putting an air freshner (like the ones for cars). If all else fails call a chimney sweep or heating/cooling shop.

For fire safety there should be no heating and cooling returns in what rooms?
The answer is garages.. Most codes provide many specific clauses for many specific areas for such reasons. It has been my experience that no heating & cooling returns or inlets attached to hazards areas or waste exposure to any normal occupancy type are shared with a common system.. They often can have independent systems, unique to them only and with special safety provisions employed such as fire dampers and chemical sensory shut down devices to close them down and isolate them from harms way.. Wiring codes have lots to say in these regards. Read them. Interesting!

In heating liquids in a test tube why should you heat the test tube's upper part?
Heating the test tube just below the meniscus helps prevent bumping. Bumping is what happens when you form a pocket of vapor under a layer of liquid. The result would be the liquid splurshing (technical term) out of the tube. If you heat it at the top, the bubbles will escape without splashing and the heat will slowly spread throughout the entire liquid. The tubes' design facilitates heat convection so there's little worry of heating the fluid unevenly.

Should you leave the heat on in an empty house during the winter?
This depends on the quality of the home's insulation, the method used for heating (oil, gas, electric), the length of time them home is expected to be empty, the outside temperature, and many other variables, including the current price of the energy used. Generally, in a home where a person leaves for work and returns daily (the usual situation for most heating systems), it is best to leave the heat at a single setting. Alternately, if one's home is equipped with a programmable thermostat (currently federal law for new installations), it can be beneficial to program a small dip in temperature during specific periods of time when the house will be unoccupied. The thinking behind this is that it is more efficient to maintain the house at a single temperature, than to repeatedly re-heat the entire house. The lower the outside temperature, the more this is the case. In sub-zero temperatures, it would take an incredible amount of energy to allow the indoor temperature to freefall during the day, and then reheat the whole house every night. This would result not only in higher heating costs, but increased wear and tear on the heating hardware itself. In warmer temperatures, this is less so. If leaving for an extended absence, such as in the case of a vacation longer than a few days, or seasonal absence, then the heat should definitely be left off. However, be aware of freezing-related damage that may occur within the home. Without any internal heating, you might encounter problems that would normally not be an issue, such as plumbing damage from water freezing in the pipes, etc. The longer the absence, the more energy and money will be saved by turning off the heat. Air conditioning is another story. High humidity (which is also corrected by A/C systems) can damage paint, drywall, wallpaper, electronics, etc.
If there is fire safety are there more types of safety?

In which heat emergency should you apply cool packs to the neck groin and armpits?
Either heat stroke (the more serious condition) or heat exhaustion (potentially a precursor to heat stroke) may be treated with cool packs. --- Heat exhaustion (aka heat stress) is hyperthermia (overheating) brought on by dehydration (excessive water loss).

Treatment for heat exhaustion includes: . moving the victim to cooler, shaded location . loosen/remove clothing . apply ice packs: neck, groin, armpits . drink 1-2 quarts of fluids Contraindicated are old treatments which included alcohol bath/rub and administering salt tablets.
