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

Stopping it from happening is the most crucial step. Completing proper safety precautions will decrease your risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in Fort Lauderdale.

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

  • Idle your car out of your garage. Cars are a large source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours going in the small space of a garage. The same applies for gas equipment including lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t operate ovens or grills for heat. These items are safe when used correctly but can produce carbon monoxide when on for an extended period of time in little spaces.
  • Don’t operate a gas generator indoors, as it produces fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a professional. This verifies chimneys and vents aren’t clogged and connected appropriately.
  • Verify gas appliances are operating properly, particularly your furnace. You can ensure efficient, safe operation by requesting yearly furnace maintenance with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.
