Preventing Dangerous Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in the Home

Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in the Home

Each year thousands of people are sickened by carbon monoxide. Because the CO gas is colorless and odorless, it's important to take steps to prevent CO poisoning in the home.

Never use portable gas or charcoal grills indoors

Ensure that your heating system is operating safely by having an annual cleaning and safety inspection performed. Check appliances and vents for visible soot stains, blockage and corrosion. An improperly vented appliance such as a gas water heater or dryer can cause exhaust fumes to enter the home. Never use a gas oven to heat your home

Install carbon monoxide detectors

It's important that every level of your home have a CO detector installed. The detectors should be installed near bedrooms. When a CO detector detects and elevated level of dangerous gas, an alarm will go off alerting you of potential danger.

What To Do During a Winter Power Outage

What To Do During a Winter Power Outage

While power outages are more common during the summer months when electrical storms are more frequent and the power grid is under stress from hot weather, power outages during the cold winter months present a different kind of risk for homeowners.

Preparing for a winter power outage

  • Check flashlights and portable devices like radios and cell phones to ensure that they are working and fully charged.
  • Have a home emergency kit with food, water and other critical supplies.
  • Keep extra batteries in a safe place or have a solar-powered or hand crank charger available.
  • If a winter storm is coming that may cause a power outage fill your bathtub and spare containers of water. This water can be used to replenish the toilet bowl.
  • Know where the manual release lever of your electric garage door opener is located.
  • Consider installing a standby power generator to provide power during an outage.

What to do during a winter power outage

  • Let faucets drip a little to relieve pressure and avoid freezing pipes. 
  • Use your car charger to keep your cell phone charged. 
  • Never use outdoor cooking appliances or heaters indoors. They can cause carbon monoxide poisoning. 
  • Use flashlights or other battery-powered lights if possible, instead of candles. If you do use candles, never leave them burning unattended.
