National Carbon Monoxide Awareness Month spurs tips from leading Detroit-area HVAC company

DETROIT, Nov. 13, 2023 ~ As November marks National Carbon Monoxide Awareness Month, C & C Heating & Air Conditioning, a leading Detroit-area heating and cooling company with more than seven decades of experience, is offering tips to avoid carbon monoxide exposure as many homeowners begin turning on their heat for the first time this season.

Dayna Hottle, General Manager of C & C Heating & Air Conditioning, said that carbon monoxide exposure goes up this time of year as homeowners begin turning on heating sources.

"Many carbon monoxide poisonings occur during the winter months when we're all using furnaces, gas fireplaces and portable heaters," said Hottle. "We also have our windows closed against the cold, so it can trap the deadly gas in our homes. Thankfully, there are many easy precautions homeowners can take to avoid exposure."

Hottle noted that CO exposure can cause nausea, dizziness, headaches, a rapid heartbeat and unconsciousness. To help prevent such occurrences from happening in homes across Detroit and beyond, Hottle suggested several tips: regular heating system maintenance; installing a battery-operated CO detector in the home; not warming up a car in a closed garage; avoiding putting generators near windows; not heating a home with a gas oven; and always venting fireplaces.

"We want everyone to be able to stay comfortable and warm as the holiday season approaches," Hottle said. "And if you suspect you have been exposed to carbon monoxide or believe it's in your home, don't take chances. Leave the house and call 911 immediately. There's never any reason to take chances."
