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

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

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

  • Idle your car out of 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 like lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t use ovens or grills for heat. These things are safe when run properly but can make carbon monoxide when on for a long period of time in small spaces.
  • Don’t run a gas generator indoors, as it produces fumes.
  • Have your chimney examined by a specialist. This verifies chimneys and vents aren’t blocked and connected appropriately.
  • Check gas appliances are running accurately, especially your heating system. You can make sure you’re receiving efficient, safe operation by requesting routine furnace maintenance with Climate Control Service Experts.
