Having a CO detector installed is always a good idea. In fact, some local building and fire codes make it a requirement.

What is Carbon Monoxide (CO) and why is it dangerous?

Gas appliances burn gas – and one of the byproducts of gas is carbon monoxide. It’s odorless, colorless, and lethal to humans. It is often called a silent killer. CO is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America.

What are symptoms of CO exposure?

There are a number of symptoms that are associated with CO poisoning, including headaches, dizziness, nausea, and fatigue – but these are also associated with many other illnesses, including flu. Sometimes symptoms can be more severe and result in loss of consciousness or vomiting.

What are the causes of CO leaks?

Improper installation or maintenance of several appliances or types of equipment can lead to a CO leak, including:

  • Gas appliances
  • Generators
  • Furnaces
  • Fireplaces with blocked chimneys or flues
  • Grills

If your home has even one fuel-burning appliance or piece of equipment, you should have a carbon monoxide alarm. And remember, don’t leave running vehicles in an attached garage,
