There are hundreds of deaths every year from Carbon Monoxide, and just a small amount of Carbon Monoxide in your home can cause severe health problems over time. Symptoms are easy to misdiagnose and you may already be experiencing slow poisoning and not even know it. That’s why in today’s day and age every single home MUST be equipped with a Carbon Monoxide Detector. This is the only way to guarantee the safety of you and your loved ones from this common yet highly toxic gas. Read below to learn more.

The Effects of Carbon Monoxide Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless and odorless gas. Because you can’t see, taste or smell it, it can affect you or your family before you even know it’s there.

Initial symptoms could include:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Irritability
  • Confusion/Memory loss
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Abnormal reflexes
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Chest Pain

Continued CO exposure may lead to:

  • Convulsions/Seizures
  • Nervous system damage
  • Cerebral Edema
  • Brain damage
  • Coma
  • Death

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.

Product Notes

  • To learn more about carbon monoxide poisoning please read: [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_monoxide_poisoning]
  • 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.
  • Do not to install carbon monoxide detectors directly above or beside fuel-burning appliances, as appliances may emit a small amount of carbon monoxide upon start-up. It should not be placed within fifteen feet of heating or cooking appliances or in or near very humid areas such as bathrooms.
