No matter where you live or what time of the year it is, carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is a hazard. If a gas stove is used in the home (which is common), there is an average of 0.5 to 5 parts per million (ppm) present in the air. But why is carbon monoxide dangerous and, more importantly, how can you make sure that levels are kept low in your home?

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas. It is also toxic. You can't smell it, taste it, or see it- that means CO can kill you without you being aware of its presence. Low levels cause symptoms that are commonly mistaken for the flu while high levels can cause severe damage and can even be fatal.

CO comes from a variety of household appliances such as unvented kerosene and gas space heaters, leaking chimneys and furnaces, gas water heaters, wood stoves, automobiles, and even cigarette smoke.

Preventing CO from rising to dangerous levels in the home is relatively easy. Here are some helpful tips from the United States EPA to help you protect yourself and your family from CO poisoning:

  • Keep gas appliances properly adjusted.
  • Consider purchasing a vented space heater when replacing an unvented one.
  • Use proper fuel in kerosene space heaters.
  • Install and use an exhaust fan vented to outdoors over gas stoves.
  • Open flues when fireplaces are in use.
  • Choose properly sized wood stoves that are certified to meet EPA emission standards. Make certain that doors on all wood stoves fit tightly.
  • Have a trained professional inspect, clean, and tune-up central heating system (furnaces, flues, and chimneys) annually. Repair any leaks promptly.
  • Do not idle the car inside garage.
