Why is Carbon Monoxide so Dangerous?

Carbon monoxide could be a major concern, so it’s not a matter to mess around with.

1. You Can’t See It

Carbon monoxide is so unsafe because you can’t observe it, smell it with your nose or taste it. It doesn’t cause irritation in little concentrations and can’t be purified.

2. It Can Be Lethal After Only Minutes

Carbon monoxide is a byproduct of used fuel. It can get into your house during the heating season if the heat exchanger on your gas furnace fails. While it depends on how large the leak is and the circulation in a house, it could become deadly in within minutes.

Once inhaled, the gas has a half-life of about five hours. If you are taking in fresh air, you will need five hours to get it out of your system. It will take an extra five hours to decrease that concentration by half.

3. Carbon Monoxide Reaction Can Act Like Other Illnesses

The gas could also mimic conditions that can be confused with the flu, viral infections and chronic fatigue syndrome, among other illnesses.

How to Defend Your Residence from Carbon Monoxide

There’s no reason to take a chance with carbon monoxide poisoning.

Here are some steps you can take to keep your house safe:

    1. Each residence with at least one gas furnace, attached garage or fireplace should have a carbon monoxide alarm.
