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

Prevention is the most essential step. Completing appropriate safety precautions will reduce your likelihood of carbon monoxide poisoning in Savannah.

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

  • Idle your car out of 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 is true for gas equipment such as lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t use ovens or grills as heaters. These appliances are safe when used properly but can make carbon monoxide when used for an extensive period of time in tight spaces.
  • Don’t use a gas generator indoors, since it produces fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a specialist. This makes sure chimneys and vents are clear and connected correctly.
  • Confirm gas appliances are operating properly, particularly your heater. You can ensure efficient, safe comfort by scheduling regular furnace maintenance with Coastal Service Experts.
