Seriously, let’s talk about Carbon Monoxide (CO).
With the freezing temps coming our way, our furnaces and
fireplaces are about to get some heavy usage.
Staying warm is a priority.
But we need to make sure we stay safe.
CO is an odorless gas that is produced when fuel is burned.
Our gas appliances are designed with vents that move the CO up
and out of our homes.
Leaking or faulty chimneys and furnaces are the main cause of CO
Low concentrations of CO can cause fatigue and chest pain.
High concentrations lead to severe symptoms and can be fatal.
