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

Stopping it from happening is the most critical place to start. Doing correct safety precautions will decrease your chances of carbon monoxide poisoning in Boise.

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

  • Heat up your car out of your garage. Cars are a large source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so don’t leave yours going in the confined space of a garage. The same applies for gas equipment such as lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t run ovens or grills for heat. These appliances are safe when run properly but can make carbon monoxide when on for a long period of time in small spaces.
  • Don’t use a gas generator indoors, as it creates fumes.
  • Have your chimney checked by a professional. This confirms chimneys and vents are clear and connected properly.
  • Check gas appliances are working accurately, particularly your heater. You can ensure efficient, safe operation by booking yearly furnace maintenance with TML Service Experts.
