How can I avoid CO leaks in my home?

Schedule Annual Safety Inspections: To prevent a possible leak, it’s important to have your appliances inspected annually. A professional will be able to detect if it’s running properly and tell you if it needs to be repaired or replaced.

Open the Garage Door: You should also avoid having your car turned on in the garage while the garage door is closed. If it is left running, your garage will be filled with carbon monoxide which can leak into your home.

Install a CO Detector: Most importantly, even with taking extra precautions to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning, you should have detectors installed in your home. While you can do everything to try and detect possible sources before a disaster occurs, a detector will alert you while a leak is happening.
