The Dangers of Carbon Monoxide- The Silent Killer
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless and toxic gas that is impossible to see, taste or smell. Carbon Monoxide can kill you before you are even aware that it is in your home.
Where Does Carbon Monoxide Come From?
Carbon Monoxide can come from kerosene and gas space heaters; leaking chimneys and furnaces; the back-drafting from furnaces, gas water heaters, wood stoves, fireplaces, gas stoves, generators and other types of gasoline powered equipment.
Carbon Monoxide can also come from automobile exhaust and tobacco smoke. The incomplete oxidation from combustion in gas ranges and unvented gas or kerosene heaters may cause high concentrations of CO in indoor air. Worn or poorly adjusted and maintained combustion devicesfrom boilers and furnaces can be significant sources of carbon monoxide, or if the flue from a furnace is improperly sized, blocked, disconnected, or is leaking. Auto, truck, or bus exhaust from attached garages, nearby roads, or parking areas can also be a source.
