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

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

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

  • Idle 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 operate ovens or grills as heaters. These things are safe when run correctly but can make carbon monoxide when used for an extensive period of time in little spaces.
  • Don’t run a gas generator indoors, since it produces fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a professional. This confirms chimneys and vents are clear and connected correctly.
  • Confirm gas appliances are operating correctly, including your heater. You can make sure you’re receiving efficient, safe operation by requesting yearly furnace maintenance with Bob Brown Service Experts.
