Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas. Rather than worry about your carbon monoxide levels, have Alco Air install carbon monoxide detectors in your home to protect your family from this invisible danger.
Facts About Carbon Monoxide?
Carbon monoxide, or CO, is odorless and colorless, which is why it is often referred to as “the invisible killer.”
CO is created when fuels such as gas, wood, coal, oil or methane burn incompletely. This means that carbon monoxide can come from sources such as heating systems, hot water heaters, ovens, dryers, fireplaces, generators, or vehicles in an attached garage.
A person can be poisoned by a small amount of CO over a long period of time, or a large amount of CO in a short period of time.
Infants, pregnant women, and people with oxygen limitations such as those with asthma, emphysema or heart disease can be poisoned by lower concentrations of CO than the average, healthy adult.
With these facts in mind, installing carbon monoxide detectors in your home or business is an obvious solution, and is even becoming standard building code for newer buildings.
