Why is Carbon Monoxide so Dangerous? 

Carbon monoxide may be an emergency, so it’s not a matter to joke about. 

1. You Can’t See It 

Carbon monoxide is dangerous because you cannot see it, sense it with your nose or recognize it with your taste buds. It’s not as dangerous in small concentrations and can’t be filtrated. 

2. It Can Be Lethal After Only Minutes 

Carbon monoxide is a byproduct of burnt fuel. It can leak into your home during cold weather if the heat exchanger on your gas furnace cracks. Based on how considerable the leak is and the circulation in a residence, the gas may become lethal in just a few minutes. 

Once inhaled, carbon monoxide has a half-life of around five hours. If you are breathing clean air, it will take five hours to take it out of your body. It will take an extra five hours to reduce that amount by half. 

3. Carbon Monoxide Reaction Can Act Like Other Illnesses 

Carbon monoxide may also mimic symptoms that can be mistaken as the flu, viral infections and chronic fatigue syndrome, among other conditions. 

How to Defend Your Family from Carbon Monoxide 

There’s no justification to risk carbon monoxide poisoning. 

Here are several things you can complete to keep your house safe: 

  1. Each house with at least one fuel-burning heater, attached garage or fireplace requires a carbon monoxide system. It’s necessary to have a sensor on all levels of your home, on top of the basement and garage. You also should install one inside or outside of each bedroom.
