Understanding Carbon Monoxide Risks In Your Home

Monday, April 6, 2020

There are many things that pose a risk in the home. From fires to damp, there are many visible and obvious risks. One of the most dangerous, however, is something that is a little harder to detect - carbon monoxide.

Carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless, which is why it’s considered a ‘silent killer’. If it were to build up in your home, it would be difficult to detect it without a carbon monoxide detector. Carbon monoxide poisoning is a serious health issue, and can lead to hospitalization and even death in some situations.

Carbon monoxide can be emitted by a number of appliances in your home, including your clothes dryer, water heater, furnaces, ovens, stoves and more. It’s important to get your appliances serviced regularly to check that they’re still in working order. If you suspect a fault with your appliance, don’t ignore the warning signs and get it checked out as soon as possible.

A carbon monoxide detector can also be a valuable asset to your home, alerting you to when there’s a dangerous level of carbon monoxide in your home. The following infographic provides some more detailed information about carbon monoxide concentration levels and the potential effects on your health. Understanding the risks could help you become more informed about carbon monoxide poisoning and urge you to take action to keep you and your family safe in your home.
