10 Ways To Minimize Your Risk of Gas Stove Dangers

  1. Always turn on the fan when you cook. Keep it on the highest setting.

  2. Cook on your back burners. Cooking directly under your range hood is ideal.

  3. If your fan vents back into the house rather than to the outside, open a window.

  4. Cook with a blue gas flame. If you see an orange flame, it means you need to have your stove adjusted.

  5. Have a qualified contractor inspect your gas range. Keep it maintained.

  6. For those renovating their homes, a conduction cooktop is an improvement. It uses magnetic . Thus, you will not have noxious combustion by-products. However, you will still have some pollution from heating food and cooking oil, as in all types of stoves.

  7. Do not use your gas range to heat your home.

  8. Do not line the inside of the oven with aluminum foil.

  9. Make sure your gas appliance is design certified. Check that it’s installed to code.

  10. Neve use any inflammable substance around your Gas stove.
