Carbon Monoxide Home Checklist

 
This year, an estimated 400 to 500 people will die needlessly due to carbon monoxide poisoning and thousands more will be hospitalized. It is the number one source of accidental poisoning and Autumn is the time of greatest risk because people are firing up their gas furnaces, boilers, wood stoves, space heaters, and other seasonal combustion appliances for the first time in six months or more. Everything may appear to operate fine. Things may appear safe. But carbon monoxide is insidious. You cannot see it, smell it, or taste it. It is particularly dangerous to unborn children, babies, and small infants. The following checklists will help you minimize the risk in your home.
3 Ways Furnaces and Boilers Can Place Your Home at Risk

  • Loose vent pipes
  • Fatigued metal that cracks
  • Corrosion from condensation

6 Danger Signs You Can Observe
If you observe any of the following warning signs, get a professional to perform an inspection immediately…

  • Rust or water streaks on your furnace vent or chimney
  • Loose or missing furnace panels
  • Soot or debris in or around your furnace or boiler
  • Loose or disconnected vent pipes
  • Loose masonry on masonry chimneys

4 Symptoms of Mild Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
