Your message about flues in a chimney is very applicable to me because I love to make fires in my fireplace once winter hits. There is nothing like being with your significant other while sitting by a nice fire. I am sure you would agree.

Thanks and keep up the good work. MY.

Bill Ding

Space heaters in unvented areas are especially dangerous. Every year in the Southern California Region you can read or hear about whole families killed as a result of trying to keep warm using space heaters and having all the doors and windows closed. This winter could be one of our worst seasons for this ever in the Region. The Utility Reform Network is reporting that in 2008 California,s BIG 4 power and gas utilities shut off service to 600,000 homes in 2008 impacting nearly 2.5 million children and adults including many with disabilities. And up to 720,000 more homes will have utilities shut off by the 1st of January. At least 1 out of every 10 Californians is unemployeed and for disabled persons who need to rely on SSI, it has been cut 4 times in 2 years making it very tough for utility bills to be paid. But more space heaters will be used this year and more deaths and injuries will result. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.
