Leading Causes of House Fires

The leading cause of house fires in the United States is something cooking related. The second leading cause is usually due to air conditioning or heating unit malfunction. During winter months, heating equipment is the leading cause of home fires. About two-thirds of home heating fire deaths are caused by portable or fixed heaters.   


Since most Arizona dwellers won't use their heating systems for most of the year, you may not expect anything to be wrong with your units if they haven't been on. Unfortunately, this isn't the case. Unused heating units can rust and clog up essential areas of ventilation, which can cause a malfunction, potentially leading to a fire within your home's walls.
