Daylight saving time started last night, did you set your clocks forward or where you an hour behind like me today. Twice a year, when the time changes, this becomes the perfect time to make any safety check around the house. A few simple safety changes could save you and your loved ones life. Start with the smoke detectors. Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are better equipped when they're powered on by a new "fresh" battery. Safety experts recommend replacing smoke and carbon monoxide detector batteries twice a year. Replace light bulbs, non working light bulbs are a safety hazard. Consider replacing conventional bulbs with energy-efficient compact fluorescent or LCD bulbs. The U.S. Environmental Protection estimates that replacing standard bulbs with energy-efficient ones saves over $30 in electricity costs over their lifetime. Celebrate time change sunday with new batteries, light bulbs and a bloody mary !!
