More Common than You’d Imagine Any fuel burning appliance that is malfunctioning or improperly installed can be a source of CO. This includes furnaces, water heaters, gas stove/range, gas clothes dryer, gas or wood fireplaces, wood-burning stoves and automobile exhaust from an attached garage. Other sources include clogged chimneys or flues, fuel burning space heaters, vent pipes and more. Simply put, it’s a lot more common than you would think.

- New homes are even more susceptible to CO poisoning. That’s because energy efficient homes have air tight windows and doors, literally trapping the Carbon Monoxide inside.
