Home Ventilation Brooklyn Park | Carbon Monoxide Poisoning 

Home Ventilation Brooklyn Park is critical to a safe home in winter. Carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas. It is produced by burning fuels such as gas, wood, oil and coal. Most homes have an appliance that runs on one of these fuels. If the appliance is not vented properly or is not working properly, the house can fill with carbon monoxide. With the firing up of our furnaces and fireplaces this coming fall we also have an increased risk of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning in our homes. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning can be avoided through proper weatherization and ventilation.

CO poisoning can occur when you are exposed to too much carbon monoxide. When you breathe too much carbon monoxide your ability to absorb oxygen is reduced, leading to serious tissue damage. CO poisoning can lead to death. Appliances and other devices that generate combustion fumes, such as gas furnaces and gas fireplaces, produce CO.

The danger of carbon monoxide poisoning occurs when too much CO accumulates in a poorly ventilated space. Here is a great article about good Home Ventilation Brooklyn Park from Century Insulation.

Here are some symptoms of CO poisoning to watch for this winter in yourself and your loved ones:

  • Weakness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Nausea
