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

Preventing it from happening is the most essential step. Taking appropriate safety precautions will decrease your risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in Ocala.

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

  • Idle your car outside your garage. Cars are a major source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so never leave yours running in the confined space of a garage. The same is true for gas equipment including lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t run ovens or grills as heaters. These items are safe when operated properly but can create carbon monoxide when used for an extensive period of time in little spaces.
  • Don’t run a gas generator indoors, as it produces fumes.
  • Have your chimney examined by a specialist. This confirms chimneys and vents are clear and connected appropriately.
  • Verify gas appliances are operating accurately, including your heating system. You can make sure you’re receiving efficient, safe operation by requesting routine furnace maintenance with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.
