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

Prevention is the most important step. Completing correct safety precautions will lower your likelihood of carbon monoxide poisoning in Edmonton.

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

  • Warm up your car out of your garage. Cars are a large source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours going in the restricted space of a garage. The same is true for gas equipment like lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t operate ovens or grills for heat. These appliances are safe when operated properly but can make carbon monoxide when on for an extensive period of time in tight spaces.
  • Don’t run a gas generator indoors, since it makes fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a professional. This confirms chimneys and vents aren’t clogged and connected appropriately.
  • Confirm gas appliances are running accurately, particularly your furnace. You can make sure you’re receiving efficient, safe comfort by requesting regular furnace maintenance with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.
