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

Preventing it from happening is the most critical place to begin. Completing proper safety precautions will reduce your likelihood of carbon monoxide poisoning in East Syracuse.

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

  • Heat up your car away from your garage. Cars are a significant source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours going in the confined space of a garage. The same applies for gas equipment like lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t use ovens or grills for heat. These items are safe when run properly but can make carbon monoxide when run for a long period of time in small spaces.
  • Don’t operate a gas generator indoors, because it makes fumes.
  • Have your chimney examined by a specialist. This makes sure chimneys and vents aren’t clogged and connected correctly.
  • Confirm gas appliances are operating accurately, especially your heater. You can ensure efficient, safe heating by requesting yearly furnace maintenance with Falso Service Experts.
