Carbon monoxide is a side effect of spent fuel. It can leak into your residence during cold weather if the heat exchanger on your gas furnace breaks. While it depends on how big the leak is and the circulation in a house, the gas could become lethal in only a few minutes.
Once inhaled, carbon monoxide has a half-life of approximately five hours. If you are taking in clean air, you will need five hours to remove it from your system. It will take another five hours to reduce that amount by half.
