How can I protect my family from carbon monoxide poisoning

Carbon monoxide is a deadly odorless and colorless gas that results from incomplete combustion. To protect your family, install a carbon monoxide detector if you have any gas appliances, including a stove, water heater, dryer, fireplace or furnace.

Second, maintain your appliances. Follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance on your other gas appliances and get annual tune-ups for your furnace and water heater to make sure they are not leaking any of the dangerous gas into your home.
