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

Prevention is the most critical place to start. Completing appropriate safety precautions will lower your risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in Daytona Beach.

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

  • Idle your car away from your garage. Cars are a large source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so never leave yours running in the restricted space of a garage. The same applies for gas equipment including lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t use ovens or grills for heat. These items are safe when operated right but can create carbon monoxide when used for a long period of time in tight spaces.
  • Don’t use a gas generator indoors, as it creates fumes.
  • Have your chimney examined by a pro. This makes sure chimneys and vents aren’t blocked and connected correctly.
  • Confirm gas appliances are working properly, particularly your furnace. You can make sure you’re getting efficient, safe operation by requesting annual furnace maintenance with All American Air Service Experts.
