Winters Co. has been giving away these products and services free of charge since March when it began focusing on a variety of home safety issues.

Plumbing and heating contracting company Winters Co. (Cambridge, Mass.) has given away more than 500 free carbon monoxide detectors and residential heating system safety evaluations to area homeowners. The company has been giving away these products and services free of charge since March of this year when it initiated the program, focusing on a variety of home safety issues.

Tired of hearing news reports of incidents and tragedies related to CO poisoning, faulty home heating systems and improper ventilation, Winters Co. began providing the inspections and detector installation service free of charge. Since March, the program has grown in popularity due to word of mouth, and the company hopes to uncover potentially dangerous issues before they become a problem.

"What began primarily as a wintertime safety program has led to an ongoing way for us to create or strengthen relationships with hundreds of customers," said President and CEO Timothy Flynn. "Especially now when we approach colder weather in the months ahead, homeowners appreciate what we can do to improve their safety and well being."
