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

Preventing it from happening is the most critical step. Taking appropriate safety precautions will reduce your chances of carbon monoxide poisoning in Dallas.

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

  • Warm up your car outside your garage. Cars are a large source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours on in the confined space of a garage. The same applies for gas equipment such as lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t operate ovens or grills for heat. These appliances are safe when used correctly but can make carbon monoxide when used for an extended period of time in little spaces.
  • Don’t use a gas generator indoors, as it creates fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a specialist. This ensures chimneys and vents aren’t blocked and connected properly.
  • Verify gas appliances are working accurately, particularly your heater. You can ensure efficient, safe heating by booking regular furnace maintenance with Levy & Son Service Experts.
