- Do not use your gas oven for heating your home, damage may occur to the stove and a gas stove doesn’t ventilate carbon monoxide to the outside. Doing so can result in the dangerous build-up of carbon monoxide gas. Always use a vent hood that is ventilated to the outside when you use a gas stove.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Corrosion can lead to rust and holes in the burning chamber of any gas burning appliance. Rust, damage, and invasive animals can lead to blockage of the gas ventilation system. Any of which can result in deadly carbon monoxide levels building up in your home.
Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are headache, chest pain, difficulty breathing, weakness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting and loss of consciousness to name a few.
Homes using any fossil fuel, which includes, gas furnaces and hot water heaters, gas fireplaces and stoves, wood burning fireplaces or heaters or any other source of fossil fuels should have carbon monoxide detectors located at bedrooms, and at least one on each floor. Like a smoke detector, a carbon monoxide detector will warn you the build-up of the gas, potentially saving lives.
