It’s that time of year for all of us to think about certain safety in our homes, the homes of other family members, and the homes of our neighbors. Each winter, people unknowingly put themselves at great risk by not checking and not heading warnings as to carbon monoxide poisoning. The two most common mistakes people make to put them and others at risk: AC Generators – either too close to the house or not even set-up outside but placed in an enclosed garage (never do this!) and/or faulty or snow-covered furnace venting. Check the exhaust vents of your heating systems and that of the homes in your neighborhood as you walk and drive around. If each person who reads this blog does this simple thing, who knows if together we just might save a family or a neighbor from a very dangerous situation. More heavy snowfall is in the forecast, which could be the storm that starts to back-up dangerous, deadly gasses into a home due to more common direct-vent systems in place with many newer homes not having chimney venting. Let’s avoid this possible scenario here in our great Maine Sebago Lakes region if we can!
