carbon monoxide detector placement

Carbon Monoxide

is also known as CO, a toxic gas that is colorless, odorless and tasteless. It is produced when burning fuels like gas, oil, wood or coal. Engines produce CO gases when they are running.

Oil burners, gas fires, wood burning stoves, gas powered water heaters are sources that produce Carbon Monoxide in our homes. These devices must be in good working order and well ventilated. Service to these appliances should be done by qualified professionals.

Carbon Monoxide

levels can be detected in small to dangerous levels by using a Carbon Monoxide Detector in the environment you want to monitor. Reasons for the CO levels to be present in your surrounding can range from a poor installation of an appliance to poor maintenance. An example of poor installation could be not enough ventilation of heating device.

CO has no smell, no color and no taste. Running a vehicle in an enclosed area can certainly produce dangerous levels of Carbon Monoxide levels that can cause death. Burning wood, coal, gas or coal burning stoves or furnaces automatically produce Carbon Monoxide. An appliance that is not running efficient can produce even more toxic fumes.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning happens when CO enters the lungs and displaces oxygen from the bloodstream, interrupting the normal supply of oxygen to the vital organs, including the heart and the brain. People that are not healthy, people who have heart or respiratory problems, children and pets are more susceptible to Carbon Monoxide Poisoning.

Symptoms like headache, dizziness, nausea caused by CO poisoning can be diagnosed as general health issues. This is why it is so important to have a Carbon Monoxide Detector installed in a living environment that may be subject to the presence of CO levels. A properly installed Carbon Monoxide Detector will set off an alarm before the level of CO reaches the dangerous stage.
