Why is Carbon Monoxide so Bad?

Carbon monoxide could be a big deal, so it’s not a thing to take lightly.

1. You Can’t Smell It

Carbon monoxide is deadly because you cannot see it, sense it with your nose or detect it with your taste buds. It doesn’t cause irritation in low doses and can’t be purified.

2. It Can Be Fatal After Only Minutes

Carbon monoxide is a result of used fuel. It can filter into your residence during the winter if the heat exchanger on your gas furnace breaks. While it depends on how considerable the leak is and the circulation in a residence, it could become fatal in within minutes.

Once taken in, carbon monoxide has a half-life of around five hours. If you are inhaling clean air, it will take five hours to get it out of your bloodstream. It requires another five hours to cut that concentration by half.

3. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Can Resemble Other Illnesses

Carbon monoxide may also mimic illnesses that can be mistaken as the flu, viral infections and chronic fatigue syndrome, among other things.

How to Protect Your Residence from Carbon Monoxide

There’s no reason to take a chance with carbon monoxide poisoning.
