What can be done to protect my home from carbon monoxide?

Preventing it from happening is the most critical place to begin. Taking correct safety precautions will reduce your chances of carbon monoxide poisoning in Ravenna.

Here are a couple steps you can take to protect your family:

  • Heat up your car away from your garage. Cars are a major source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours going in the small space of a garage. The same is true for gas equipment including lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t use ovens or grills as heating sources. These items are safe when used correctly but can make carbon monoxide when used for an extended period of time in tight spaces.
  • Don’t run a gas generator indoors, as it makes fumes.
  • Have your chimney inspected by a pro. This makes sure chimneys and vents are clear and connected appropriately.
  • Check gas appliances are operating accurately, including your heating system. You can ensure efficient, safe heating by scheduling routine furnace maintenance with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.
