Check For Carbon Monoxide to Help Protect Those You Love
We offer affordable, high-quality home CO detectors to help keep your family safe. These are especially recommended in your home if it contains a fuel burning appliance. Carbon Monoxide (CO for short) is found in fumes, and as you know, these fumes are generated anytime you burn fuel in your car. But it is also is produced by stoves, gas ranges and other heating and cooking sources. A buildup of CO can be extremely harmful to you, your family, and your pets. We can check for carbon monoxide as part of a furnace tune-up, or as part of our indoor air quality (IAQ) testing program.
CO Can Even Harm Healthy Adults
Carbon monoxide poisoning is no trivial matter where your health is concerned. Even in a concentration as small as 200 parts per million (ppm), a healthy adult can experience symptoms such as headaches. As the ppm count increases, symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, and unconsciousness, even death could occur. CO exposure can be especially dangerous to anyone with a reduced ability to utilize oxygen, including infants, pregnant women, and those with conditions such as emphysema and asthma. Even those with heart disease may be more severely impacted by lower concentrations of CO than a healthy adult. A home test for CO could prove invaluable!
