Carbon Monoxide poisoning kills Americans every year and se to the hospital, according to the CDC. Leaking furnaces or boilers are one of the most common causes of deadly carbon monoxide poisoning— every year without fail. Odorless, colorless and very deadly, carbon monoxide is a byproduct of burning fuel to heat your home. Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Cut Corners With Boiler Maintenance Carbon monoxide poisoning is one of the horrible possibilities of a poorly maintained boiler and heating system. That’s one of the reasons that at Hassle Free Boilers we’re so adamant about having the best engineers in the country and maintaining your Hassle Free Boiler to such a high standard.
Acute poisonings are the ones that make the news. "Family sent ot hospital" or "3 dead from CO poisoning". Acute poisoning is when CO levels are high enough to cause immediate damage. Chronic poisonings are caused by continuous exposure to lower levels of CO. This type of poisoning is misdiagnosed 99% of the time. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless, tasteless, poisonous gas produced by incomplete burning of carbon-based fuels, including gas, oil, wood and coal. Carbon-based fuels are safe to use. It is only when the fuel does not burn properly that excess CO is produced, which is poisonous.
This gas information sheet provides information about electrochemical sensor carbon monoxide (CO) alarms and how to use them. CO alarms can be a useful back-up precaution but should not be considered a substitute for the proper installation and regular maintenance (at . Yes if and when burning (browning or blackening) any food, like baking bread or pies in an electric oven.
