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

Preventing it from happening is the most critical place to begin. Doing proper safety precautions will reduce your likelihood of carbon monoxide poisoning in Memphis.

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

  • Heat up your car out of your garage. Cars are a major source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours going in the confined space of a garage. The same goes for gas equipment such as lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t run ovens or grills as heating sources. These items are safe when used properly but can produce carbon monoxide when on for an extensive period of time in small spaces.
  • Don’t operate a gas generator indoors, as it produces fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a pro. This ensures chimneys and vents are clear and connected correctly.
  • Verify gas appliances are operating accurately, including your heating system. You can make sure you’re getting efficient, safe heating by requesting yearly furnace maintenance with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.
