Each year, Canadians die or become ill because of carbon monoxide poisoning.
That’s because homes in Canada are usually heated by furnaces, fireplaces, gas stoves, and water heaters. Time to ensure your fuel-burning appliances are well maintained and inspected by a professional.
Protect your family from carbon monoxide exposure with these tips :
– gas-powered machines in the garage, such as generators, lawnmowers or snowblowers.
– a barbecue or portable fuel-burning camping equipment inside a home, garage or tent.
– kerosene or oil space heaters and lamps in enclosed areas unless they’re specifically designed for indoor use.
