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

Stopping it from happening is the most crucial step. Taking correct safety precautions will reduce your chances of carbon monoxide poisoning in Shreveport.

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

  • Idle your car outside your garage. Cars are a large source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours on in the restricted space of a garage. The same goes for gas equipment including lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t operate ovens or grills as heaters. These things are safe when operated properly but can make carbon monoxide when run for an extensive period of time in small spaces.
  • Don’t run a gas generator indoors, because it creates fumes.
  • Have your chimney examined by a pro. This ensures chimneys and vents aren’t blocked and connected correctly.
  • Check gas appliances are running correctly, including your heater. You can ensure efficient, safe comfort by scheduling regular furnace maintenance with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.
