- Gas stoves and appliances
- Charcoal and fireplaces
Generally, these vehicles and appliances are safe to use if you are using and maintaining them properly. Following product, safety instructions can help protect you and others from accidental carbon monoxide poisoning. You can also install carbon monoxide detectors to prevent a potential tragedy.
