Don’t Let Carbon Monoxide Impact Your Indoor Air Quality

w.e. kingswell carbon monoxide At W.E. Kingswell are committed to informing you about the dangers of carbon monoxide and offering helpful tips for preserving the security and health of your interior environment. For more information on carbon monoxide, its effects on the environment, and how to prevent it, continue reading to learn how it can impact your health and indoor air quality.

Sources of Carbon Monoxide in the Home

One of the significant sources of carbon monoxide within the home is an ineffective heating system or a poorly ventilated home. If your home’s heating system begins to show these signs, you could unknowingly leak carbon monoxide into your residence. Gas-powered equipment like boilers, water heaters, and furnaces can all release carbon monoxide (CO) if there are ventilation issues. Additionally, invisible gas can be created using gas-powered or motorized equipment in confined spaces like basements or garages.

Carbon Monoxide’s Impact 

Carbon monoxide has no smell or color, so detecting it with our senses is challenging. If taken into your home, it can swiftly impact your health and air quality. Headaches, nausea, dizziness, confusion, and extreme situations, even death, can be brought on by breathing in CO. Chronic conditions, including heart disease and brain damage, may be long-term health effects of carbon monoxide exposure.

Reduce Carbon Monoxide Levels

Fortunately, you can take action to lower CO levels in your house and safeguard the air quality inside. Here are some crucial steps to take:

  • Install CO detectors in and around sleeping areas, particularly near bedrooms.
  • Ensure that all of the gas-powered appliances in your house, such as the furnace, boiler, water heater, and stoves, have been adequately maintained by a licensed specialist.
  • Any problems that could cause CO emissions can be found and fixed with regular maintenance and inspections.
  • Never leave your automobile running inside a connected garage, even with the garage door open.
  • Call on our knowledgeable professionals to inspect, maintain, and tune up your central heating system regularly. We can swiftly repair leaks or issues to preserve optimum ventilation and stop CO emissions.
