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

Stopping it from happening is the most crucial place to begin. Taking correct safety precautions will decrease your risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in West Palm Beach.

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

  • Warm up your car out of your garage. Cars are a significant source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so don’t leave yours going in the restricted space of a garage. The same applies for gas equipment such as lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t operate ovens or grills as heating sources. These things are safe when used properly but can produce carbon monoxide when on for a long period of time in little spaces.
  • Don’t use a gas generator indoors, as it produces fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a specialist. This verifies chimneys and vents aren’t blocked and connected properly.
  • Check gas appliances are working accurately, particularly your heater. You can ensure efficient, safe heating by requesting yearly furnace maintenance with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.
