Why is Carbon Monoxide so Poisonous? 

Carbon monoxide might be a major concern, so it’s not a thing to take lightly. 

1. You Can’t Smell It 

Carbon monoxide is hazardous because you cannot see it, sense it with your nose or detect it with your taste buds. It’s nonirritating in low doses and can’t be filtered. 

2. It Can Be Fatal in Just a Few Minutes 

Carbon monoxide is a result of used fuel. It can filter into your home during cold weather if the heat exchanger on your gas furnace fails. Based on how large the leak is and the airflow in a home, the gas may become deadly in only a few minutes. 

Once breathed in, it has a half-life of approximately five hours. If you are inhaling pure air, it will take five hours to remove it from your bloodstream. You will need an extra five hours to reduce that concentration by half. 

3. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Can Act Like Other Illnesses 

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

How to Guard Your Home from Carbon Monoxide 

There’s no reason to gamble with carbon monoxide poisoning. 

Here are some steps you can take to keep your house safe: 

  1. Your home with at least one gas appliance, connected garage or fireplace requires a carbon monoxide detector. You should have a detector on every level of your home, in addition to the basement and garage. You also should install one inside or outside of every bedroom. Aren’t using a carbon monoxide detector in your home?
