Got Gas?

Yes, I’m referring to CO Gas, more commonly known as Carbon Monoxide, of course!

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a silent killer! There are many reasons why you should have a fully functional Carbon monoxide (CO) detector in your house at all times!

First we need to understand the facts!

  • Carbon Monoxide is deadly! It is an odorless, colorless and poisonous gas.
  • Carbon Monoxide is produced by the incomplete burning of various fuels such as; coal, wood, charcoal, oil propane and natural gas. Simple things that may be found in a home!
  • On average, about 170 people in the United States die each year from the Carbon Monoxide produced by non-automotive consumer products.
  • Carbon Monoxide replaces oxygen in the blood stream, so you can die from a high concentration in a short period of time.

What are the symptoms?

Symptoms are very similar to those of the flu and may include, but are not limited to: 

  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness.

Your present home or the one you are looking to buy, may have a stove, water heater, furnace or other gas appliance that may be allowing carbon monoxide into the home at levels that, even though may not be deadly, can make you and your family sick?

How can I prevent CO poisoning?

  • Make sure appliances are installed and operating according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Never burn charcoal inside a home, garage or tent.
  • Install a CO alarm that meets standard requirements of the current safety code!

Carbon monoxide is dangerous and commonly referred to as the “SILENT KILLER”. We encourage you to take all of the necessary steps to keep you and your loved ones safe in your home!
