Carbon Monoxide gas is known as the “silent killer” because its odorless, colorless, and completely undetectable to the human senses – yet, it can be deadly!
If you have any gas appliances in your home such as a gas-fired furnace, boiler, water heater, or stove, to protect your family and pets from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, you need a CO Detector installed in key locations on every floor of a home.

Here are some additional recommendations and precautions to prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning:
- Have a trained professional inspect, clean, and tune-up your central heating system (furnaces, flues, and chimneys) annually.
- Check chimneys, flues and vents for leakage and blockage
- Check all vents to furnaces, water heaters, boilers and other fuel-burning appliances to make sure they are not loose or disconnected
- Inspect vent pipes on heating systems
- Inspect appliances for adequate ventilation. A supply of fresh air is important to help carry pollutants up the chimney, stovepipe or flue, and is necessary for the complete combustion of any fuel.
- Make sure ventilation air openings aren’t blocked
- Never place a generator inside
- Never use gas appliances such as ranges, ovens to heat your home
- Never keep a car running while parked in the garage– even when the garage door is open.
