DETECTING CARBON MONOXIDE
Carbon Monoxide, or CO, is an odorless, colorless, and tasteless gas that is a poisonous byproduct of incomplete combustion. If you have any fuel-burning appliance(s) in your home or apartment such as gas heat, any gas-fueled appliances, including water heaters, fireplaces, portable heaters, dryers, grills, or any wood-burning appliances such as fireplaces and wood stoves, you should have a CO detector installed on each level of your home.
PREVENT CARBON MONOXIDE PROBLEMS
To prevent carbon monoxide problems in your home be sure to keep all appliances well-maintained, clean, and in good working order. Have professional technicians clean and inspect all equipment on a regular basis.
