Carbon Monoxide Testing

Protecting Your Home and Loved Ones from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Your home’s heating and cooling systems are essential for maintaining comfort, especially during extreme temperatures. However, these systems, if not properly maintained, can pose an often unseen and sometimes deadly threat: carbon monoxide (CO). CO is a colourless, odourless gas that, when leaked into your home, can lead to serious health risks and even fatalities. That’s why carbon monoxide testing for heating and cooling systems is not just advisable but absolutely necessary to safeguard your family. 

Why Carbon Monoxide Testing Matters

Carbon monoxide is a byproduct of the combustion process in furnaces, boilers, and other heating appliances. When these systems malfunction or aren’t adequately ventilated, CO can accumulate in your home, leading to CO poisoning. The symptoms of CO poisoning are often mistaken for the flu or other common illnesses, making it a silent but deadly threat.

Regular Service is the Key

  • How does carbon monoxide poisoning occur in homes?

    Carbon monoxide poisoning occurs when CO builds up in an enclosed space, like your home, due to improper ventilation or malfunctioning appliances. Inhaling CO interferes with oxygen delivery to the body’s cells, leading to adverse symptoms and, in severe cases, fatalities.

  • What are the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning?

    Symptoms include headaches, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, confusion, and loss of consciousness. Because these symptoms are similar to the flu, CO poisoning is often called the ‘silent killer’.

  • Is carbon monoxide poisoning treatable?

    Yes, Carbon Monoxide poisoning is treatable if caught early. Treatment often involves breathing pure oxygen to remove CO from the bloodstream. However, severe cases can lead to long-term health problems or fatalities.

  • How can I ensure my home is safe from Carbon monoxide?

    Regular maintenance of your heating systems and appliances, as well as proper ventilation in rooms, and the installation of carbon monoxide detectors are essential steps to ensure your home is safe from CO poisoning. If you do install detectors, have them checked regularly and replace the batteries as often as needed.
