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

Stopping it from happening is the most essential place to begin. Doing appropriate safety precautions will lower your likelihood of carbon monoxide poisoning in Haltom City.

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

  • Heat up your car away from your garage. Cars are a significant source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so don’t 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 appliances are safe when run correctly but can produce carbon monoxide when used for an extended period of time in small spaces.
  • Don’t run a gas generator indoors, as it creates fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a specialist. This confirms chimneys and vents are clear and connected appropriately.
  • Check gas appliances are operating correctly, particularly your heater. You can ensure efficient, safe comfort by requesting annual furnace maintenance with Stark Services.
