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

Preventing it from happening is the most critical place to begin. Doing proper safety precautions will reduce your chances of carbon monoxide poisoning in Orlando.

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

  • Warm up your car out of your garage. Cars are a significant source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so never leave yours running in the restricted space of a garage. The same goes for gas equipment such as lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t operate ovens or grills for heat. These items are safe when run correctly but can make carbon monoxide when run for a long period of time in tight spaces.
  • Don’t use a gas generator indoors, since it makes fumes.
  • Have your chimney inspected by a pro. This confirms chimneys and vents are clear and connected properly.
  • Confirm gas appliances are running accurately, including your heating system. You can ensure efficient, safe comfort by scheduling annual furnace maintenance with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.
