Why is Carbon Monoxide so Deadly?

Carbon monoxide could be an emergency, so it’s not a thing to mess around with.

1. You Can’t See It

Carbon monoxide is hazardous because you cannot observe it, sense it with your nose or detect it with your taste buds. It doesn’t cause irritation in little amounts and can’t be filtrated.

2. It Can Be Deadly Within Minutes

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.

3. Carbon Monoxide Symptoms Can Mirror Other Illnesses

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

How to Protect Your Residence from Carbon Monoxide

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

Here are several precautions you can complete to keep your residence safe:

    1. Every residence with at least one fuel-burning furnace, connected garage or fireplace requires a carbon monoxide alarm.
