Carbon monoxide (CO) forms whenever you burn fuel — in stoves, grills, fireplaces, gas ranges, and furnaces. This toxic gas is odorless and colorless and can potentially be deadly.
Here are ways to prevent CO poisoning:
✔ Install quality CO detectors in your home.
✔ Get professional annual maintenance on your heating system.
✔ Make sure all your gas appliances are properly vented.
✔ Check/clean your chimney every year.
✔ Never patch a vent pipe, always replace it.
✔ Never use a gas range for heat, as it can cause CO to build up inside your home.
