Dangers of Carbon Monoxide

Carbon Monoxide Detector Monitor and Alarm

Several states have enacted laws that require carbon monoxide detectors in multi-family dwellings. You too should have a CO Alarm.

Why a Carbon Monoxide Alarm is so important.

Your home is your safe haven from the unpredictable weather outside. However, some of the products and appliances you use to make your home a better place to live can produce a colorless, odorless gas called carbon monoxide (CO). Fuels such as natural gas, LP gas, kerosene, coal, wood and charcoal, as well as automobiles can all have the potential to produce CO. Exposure to CO can cause fatigue, chest pains, impaired vision and coordination, headaches,dizziness, confusion, nausea, and in extreme cases, death. While the products that use these fuels undergo rigorous quality control checks by their manufacturers, it has been reported that more than 2000 people in the United States die every year from carbon monoxide produced by improperly maintained fuel-burning appliances. That's why Bryant recommends following a regular schedule of furnace maintenance in addition to placing a Carbon Monoxide Alarm in every sleeping location and/or one on every floor of your home.

The EPA recommend the following steps to reduce exposure to carbon monoxide:

  • Keep gas appliances properly adjusted.
  • Consider purchasing a vented space heater when replacing an unvented one.
  • Use proper fuel in kerosene space heaters.
  • Install and use an exhaust fan vented to the outdoors over gas stoves.
  • Open flues when fireplaces are in use.
  • Choose a properly sized wood stove and make sure its doors fit tightly.
  • Have a trained professional inspect, clean and tune-up central heating system (furnaces, flues and chimneys) annually. Repair any leaks promptly.
  • Do not idle the car inside garage.
  • Do not run electric generators in the garage.

Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning timetable

The toxicity of CO depends upon the concentration of CO measured in parts per million, and the amount of time exposed. A high concentration of CO over a short period of time may result in death 1-3 minutes. Lower concentrations can be fatal within 15 - 60 minutes. Symptoms include headache, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, convulsions and unconsciousness resulting in death. Remember CO is odorless and tasteless and you cannot tell if CO is in the air unless you have a detector. If you experience any of these symptoms or your CO alerts you with an alarm, GET OUT OF HOUSE and call 911 immediately. Take the time to educate all of the members of your family and tenants of this danger.
