Natural gas is affordable and efficient, making it the choice of homeowners around the country for heating, cooking and other uses. Experts suggest that you have annual professional inspections of your furnace, water heater, stove and any other natural gas appliances in your home. This reduces the risk of carbon monoxide leaks (CO), which can be deadly. Don’t be one of the 14 percent of households who have never had an inspection!
Another important step—purchasing CO detectors and placing them near gas appliances. Work out a plan for your family if your alarms go off, just like you would for your smoke alarms, and make sure everyone knows what to do if the alarm goes off.
