Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Dangers

How can carbon monoxide poisoning be prevented?


Did you know that every home with at least one fuel-burning appliance/heater, attached garage or fireplace should have at least one carbon monoxide alarm? Here are some easy steps you can take to help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning in your home: 


  • Properly equip your home with carbon monoxide alarms on every level and in sleeping areas.
  • Every year have the heating system, vents, chimney and flue inspected by a qualified technician.
  • Regularly examine vents and chimneys for improper connections, visible rust and stains.
  • Install and operate appliances according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Never use a gas range/stove to heat the home.
  • Never leave your car idling in a closed garage. Carbon monoxide can seep into your home through vents and doors.


Carbon Monoxide is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America. Make sure your family is protected! For further information or to have CO detectors professionally installed in your home, contact Peterson Heating & Cooling.

  6. There is no fan or exhaust system and no skylights which, if open, would allow hot air to escape. The massive roof, which also serves as walls, likely absorbs much heat and contributes to the overall problem.
