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

Preventing it from happening is the most important place to begin. Completing appropriate safety precautions will decrease your likelihood of carbon monoxide poisoning in Jackson.

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

  • Warm up your car out of your garage. Cars are a major source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours going in the small space of a garage. The same goes for gas equipment including lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t operate ovens or grills for heat. These items are safe when operated correctly but can create carbon monoxide when run for an extended period of time in small spaces.
  • Don’t run a gas generator indoors, as it produces fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a pro. This makes sure chimneys and vents aren’t blocked and connected appropriately.
  • Verify gas appliances are working correctly, especially your heating system. You can make sure you’re getting efficient, safe operation by requesting annual furnace maintenance with Comfortech Service Experts .
