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

Stopping it from happening is the most essential step. Doing appropriate safety precautions will reduce your likelihood of carbon monoxide poisoning in London.

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

  • Idle your car outside your garage. Cars are a major 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 run ovens or grills as heaters. These things are safe when used properly but can create carbon monoxide when run for an extensive period of time in tight spaces.
  • Don’t run a gas generator indoors, as it produces fumes.
  • Have your chimney inspected by a pro. This verifies chimneys and vents aren’t clogged and connected appropriately.
  • Check gas appliances are working properly, particularly your furnace. You can ensure efficient, safe comfort by requesting yearly furnace maintenance with Roy Inch & Sons Home Services by Enercare.
