Gases Found

CO (Carbon Monoxide) is a main concern for residential areas because it is a colorless, odorless, tasteless toxic gas formed by the incomplete combustion of carbon compounds like gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, kerosene, oil, and other heating gases. There are multiple places in the home where Carbon Monoxide can build. (See Diagram below). Other gases of concern could be combustible gases such as propane or methane (natural gas), these gases can be found using appliances that require heating and cooling such as a stove, fireplace, furnace, etc.

Carbon Monoxide is often referred to as the “silent killer” because you cannot see it or smell so it can sneak up on you, therefore a monitor being instrumental in the detection of CO. Symptoms of Carbon Monoxide poisoning include headaches, dizziness, vomiting which can often be mistaken for other flu-like illnesses. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a poisonous gas responsible for hundreds of deaths and numerous non-fatal poisonings each year in the United States. The majority (66%) of these deaths occurred in the home. CO poisoning is also the leading cause of unintentional poisoning deaths in the United States.
