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

Stopping it from happening is the most essential place to start. Taking proper safety precautions will decrease your chances of carbon monoxide poisoning in San Antonio.

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

  • Idle your car away from your garage. Cars are a large source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours going in the restricted space of a garage. The same applies for gas equipment like lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
  • Don’t operate ovens or grills for heat. These things are safe when operated properly but can create carbon monoxide when on for an extensive period of time in little spaces.
  • Don’t operate a gas generator indoors, since it makes fumes.
  • Have your chimney examined by a specialist. This confirms chimneys and vents aren’t blocked and connected correctly.
  • Confirm gas appliances are running properly, including your heating system. You can make sure you’re getting efficient, safe operation by requesting routine furnace maintenance with Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air.
