Why is Carbon Monoxide so Dangerous?

Carbon monoxide might be an emergency, so it’s not a matter to take lightly.

1. You Can’t Smell It

Carbon monoxide is so unsafe because you cannot see it, sense it with your nose or recognize it with your taste buds. It’s not as dangerous in little doses and can’t be purified.

2. It Can Be Deadly Within Minutes

Carbon monoxide is a result of burnt fuel. It can get into your residence during cold weather if the heat exchanger on your gas furnace fails. Based on how big the leak is and the ventilation in a house, carbon monoxide may become fatal in only a few minutes.

Once inhaled, carbon monoxide has a half-life of about five hours. If you are breathing clean air, it requires five hours to take it out of your body. You will need an extra five hours to reduce that amount by half.

3. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Can Mimic Other Illnesses

The gas may also cause symptoms that can be misdiagnosed as the flu, viral infections and chronic fatigue syndrome, among other illnesses.

How to Defend Your Residence from Carbon Monoxide

There’s no reason to gamble with carbon monoxide poisoning.

Here are three precautions you can take to keep your family safe:

    1. Every house with at least one fuel-burning heater, adjoined garage or fireplace needs to have a carbon monoxide detector. You should have a sensor on each level of your residence, in addition to the basement and garage. You also should install one inside or outside of all bedrooms. Don’t use a carbon monoxide alarm in your home?
      Call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing at 866-397-3787 to buy one. Ask our pros about our economical Wi-Fi carbon monoxide detectors.
    1. If you currently use a carbon monoxide system, regularly check or put in new batteries. You should test batteries every 90 days, and get a new system every three to five years.
    1. If your carbon monoxide alarm goes off, get out of your residence right away and dial 911.
