Take the necessary steps to protect you, your family and pets from the dangers of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning. Each year, hundreds of accidental carbon monoxide poisonings and fatalities occur in homes across the United States. Although auto emission regulations have reduced the levels of carbon monoxide pollution, home deaths account for the majority of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning. Protect your family with regular carbon monoxide testing from Absolute Comfort Heating and Air Conditioning.
Is a Silent Killer Lurking in Your Home?
A by-product of incomplete combustion—auto exhaust—is the most widely recognized source of carbon monoxide pollution. Fortunately, tighter emission regulations and better technology have brought ambient carbon monoxide levels within levels approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. Although this has significantly reduced the number of deaths from motor vehicle emissions, indoor carbon monoxide poisonings remain a significant safety concern for homeowners. Professional carbon monoxide testing can ease some of that worry. Remember that even if your home runs entirely on electricity, you are not immune to carbon monoxide poisonings.
Although auto exhaust accounts for most illnesses and deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning, other carbon monoxide sources include:
- Heating and cooking appliances fueled by natural gas or petroleum.
- Charcoal grills and hibachis.
- Small engines.
- Camping equipment.
- Electric generators.
Electric generators in particular account for approximately 30 percent of carbon monoxide deaths worldwide. As climate change progresses, the number and sources of carbon monoxide poisoning is expected to rise. It is important to note that the hurricane season of 2005 saw 27 electric generator-related carbon monoxide poisoning deaths.
