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

Prevention is the most essential place to start. Doing appropriate safety precautions will reduce your likelihood of carbon monoxide poisoning in Concord.

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

  • Warm up your car away from your garage. Cars are a significant source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours going in the confined 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 operated correctly but can produce carbon monoxide when run for an extensive period of time in little spaces.
  • Don’t run a gas generator indoors, since it creates fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a professional. This ensures chimneys and vents aren’t blocked and connected appropriately.
  • Check gas appliances are working properly, particularly your heater. You can make sure you’re receiving efficient, safe comfort by booking routine furnace maintenance with Freschi Service Experts.
