Common Culprits of Carbon Monoxide
While having a carbon monoxide detector installed in your home is a key component of prevention, knowing the common risk areas where these issues originate could also help you protect your home. Some common causes of carbon monoxide leaks include:
- Gas Stoves: Gas stoves are commonly poorly ventilated which can cause lethal levels of carbon monoxide in your home
- Furnaces: If your furnace if suffering from any malfunctions, your home could be at risk of CO poisoning
- Fireplaces: If you have a fireplace located in a poorly vented space, there is an increased risk for high levels of CO
- Water Heaters: If your water heater wasn’t properly installed, your home may be at risk for CO exposure
- Running Cars: If you tend to leave your car running while parked in a garage, stop! This is extremely hazardous and a common cause of carbon monoxide death
In order to protect your family and home, you need to have the proper knowledge about risks and causes in order to take preventative measures. Simply neglecting to educate yourself with what to look for can seriously put your household in danger. Schedule an inspection with a trained expert today who can test CO levels in your home and let you know where your home stands.
The Benefits of Carbon Monoxide Detector Installation
In order to protect your home from the dangers of carbon monoxide, it’s important to have a detection system in place that will be able to alert you when levels get unsafe. Since the gas is odorless and invisible, it’s impossible to simply guess when levels are abnormal and poor judgment can be lethal in this situation.
CO detectors should be installed on every floor of your home, especially those that house fuel-burning appliances. It’s a good rule of thumb to locate the detectors at least 20 feet away from CO culprits.
Consult with your trusted Beltz Home Service Co. technician to learn what system would best fit your home. Combination systems come along with a smoke detector as well and can be a great way to save money on both essential systems.
Many carbon monoxide issues are caused by gas leaks. We offer gas line repair services to take care of these issues quickly and safely.
