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

Stopping it from happening is the most crucial place to begin. Taking appropriate safety precautions will lower your risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in Philadelphia.

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

  • Heat up your car outside your garage. Cars are a significant source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours going in the small space of a garage. The same is true for gas equipment like lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t use ovens or grills as heaters. These things are safe when run correctly but can produce carbon monoxide when run for a long period of time in little spaces.
  • Don’t use a gas generator indoors, because it makes fumes.
  • Have your chimney examined by a professional. This verifies chimneys and vents aren’t clogged and connected properly.
  • Verify gas appliances are working properly, particularly your heater. You can ensure efficient, safe operation by booking routine furnace maintenance with Stallion Heating Plumbing Air Conditioning.
