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

Stopping it from happening is the most critical place to begin. Doing appropriate safety precautions will decrease your likelihood of carbon monoxide poisoning in Boise.

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 going in the confined space of a garage. The same applies for gas equipment including lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t run ovens or grills for heat. These things are safe when operated properly but can produce carbon monoxide when run for a long period of time in small spaces.
  • Don’t use a gas generator indoors, because it creates fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a professional. This ensures chimneys and vents are clear and connected properly.
  • Check gas appliances are working correctly, particularly your heater. You can ensure efficient, safe operation by requesting yearly furnace maintenance with TML Service Experts.
