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

Prevention is the most important place to begin. Taking appropriate safety precautions will lower your chances of carbon monoxide poisoning in Tempe.

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

  • Heat up your car away from your garage. Cars are a significant source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so don’t leave yours running in the confined space of a garage. The same is true for gas equipment including lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t run ovens or grills as heating sources. These things are safe when run right but can make carbon monoxide when used for an extensive period of time in little spaces.
  • Don’t operate a gas generator indoors, since it makes fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a professional. This ensures chimneys and vents are clear and connected appropriately.
  • Confirm gas appliances are operating accurately, including your heating system. You can make sure you’re getting efficient, safe operation by requesting yearly furnace maintenance with Bob Brown Service Experts.
