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

Preventing it from happening is the most essential place to begin. Taking correct safety precautions will lower your chances of carbon monoxide poisoning in Jacksonville.

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

  • Heat up your car out of your garage. Cars are a significant source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so don’t leave yours on in the restricted space of a garage. The same goes for gas equipment such as lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t use ovens or grills for heat. These items are safe when run correctly but can create carbon monoxide when used for a long period of time in little spaces.
  • Don’t operate a gas generator indoors, because it makes fumes.
  • Have your chimney examined by a specialist. This verifies chimneys and vents aren’t clogged and connected appropriately.
  • Confirm gas appliances are operating accurately, including your heater. You can ensure efficient, safe heating by booking yearly furnace maintenance with Air Engineers Service Experts.
