A story in today’s Burlington Free Press again points to the importance of making sure you protect yourself against carbon monoxide poisoning.
As we’ve discussed here before, check out the National Safety Council’s general recommendations. As mentioned, all homeowners should get at least an annual check-up on their heating and hot-water system to make sure they are operating properly. And anytime you make changes to your home, from building an addition, to adding air-conditioning, to changing your windows, you should have an expert make sure that all equipment is operating and venting properly. As a secondary measure, all homes should have a CO alarm.
Please, be safe.
