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

Stopping it from happening is the most crucial place to start. Completing correct safety precautions will decrease your risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in Medina.

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

  • Heat up your car outside your garage. Cars are a large source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so never leave yours going in the small space of a garage. The same is true for gas equipment such as lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t run ovens or grills for heat. These items are safe when operated properly but can produce carbon monoxide when run for a long period of time in small spaces.
  • Don’t run a gas generator indoors, since it makes fumes.
  • Have your chimney inspected by a professional. This ensures chimneys and vents are clear and connected appropriately.
  • Confirm gas appliances are running accurately, including your heater. You can make sure you’re getting efficient, safe comfort by requesting routine furnace maintenance with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.
