A Silent Killer – Carbon Monoxide

Easy ways to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning

If your furnace isn’t functioning properly, one of the biggest threats that it can impose to your home is a carbon monoxide leak. Carbon monoxide is a type of gas that is colorless and odorless, so there is no way to detect high levels of it on your own. A carbon monoxide leak can cause us to have flu-like symptoms, disorientation, confusion and even death.  For the safety of your family and guests, monitor and avoid carbon monoxide in your home.  For professional assistance to test for and remove carbon monoxide, contact a HVAC company.

  • Install carbon monoxide detectors on each level of your home and near bedrooms. Detectors can be purchased at most retail and do-it-yourself stores. Check that they are functioning properly and that batteries are working.
  • Do not use charcoal or gas grills inside.
  • Maintain clean chimneys and fireplaces for sufficient air flow.
  • Make sure exhaust flues and ducts are clear of any blockage.
  • Never leave a car running in an attached garage or carport.
  • Do not use ovens or stoves to heat a home.
