Why is Carbon Monoxide so Bad? 

Carbon monoxide may be a major concern, so it’s not a thing to mess around with. 

1. You Can’t Smell It 

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

2. It Can Be Fatal Within Minutes 

Carbon monoxide is a result of burnt fuel. It can filter into your home during the winter if the heat exchanger on your gas furnace fails. While it depends on how large the leak is and the airflow in a home, carbon monoxide may become deadly in only a few minutes. 

Once breathed in, it has a half-life of around five hours. If you are inhaling pure air, you will need five hours to remove it from your body. It will take an additional five hours to decrease that amount by half. 

3. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Can Act Like Other Illnesses 

It may also cause symptoms that can be misdiagnosed as the flu, viral infections and chronic fatigue syndrome, among other things. 

How to Guard Your Family from Carbon Monoxide 

There’s no justification to risk carbon monoxide poisoning. 

Here are some steps you can take to keep your house safe: 

  1. Each home with at least one gas appliance, connected garage or fireplace requires a carbon monoxide alarm.
