Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and Save Money with Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning

September 03, 2016

Can you smell that? The bonfires, the pumpkin spice lattes, the dry leaves? Mmm…fall is coming. Time to get ready! Have you bought your season tickets to your college team? Have you put away your swimsuits and flip flops and pulled out your coats and boots? Have you changed your sheets from cotton to flannel to help you stay comfy when the cooler temperatures arrive?

Have you inspected your home’s carbon monoxide detector?

 

Carbon monoxide, according to the CDC, is given off by fireplaces, furnaces, stoves, and gas ranges. The odorless and colorless gas is commonly referred to as the silent killer because it’s practically undetectable if you don’t have a carbon monoxide detector.

Carbon monoxide poisoning can be fatal to adults, children, and pets. Over 20,000 people end up in the emergency room each year because of carbon monoxide poisoning. Common CO poisoning symptoms are dizziness, headache, chest pain, and upset stomach. Because the symptoms seem like the flu, many people do not understand they could be extremely ill.

With the decrease in temperatures causing homeowners to turn on their furnaces, carbon monoxide poisoning increases during the cooler months while everyone is doing whatever they can to stay warm. When properly installed by certified experts, equipment such as furnaces will safety express carbon monoxide out of the home, but your furnace should be inspected each year to verify there are no issues that could result in poisoning from the odorless and colorless gas.
