JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - As winter weather approaches, more people are turning on their heaters.
But without proper care and inspections, heaters could lead to problems for homeowners, such as fires and carbon monoxide poisoning.
A deadly example, a racing fan at Talladega died over the weekend when he turned on the heater in his RV. The inside filled with carbon monoxide.
"Before you kick it on, you wanna have somebody that you know professional come out and check it and make sure it's safe," Nathan Tompkins with Tompkins Heating and Air said.
