Cincinnati Heating Tips: What Is Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?

Protect Your Home From Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Did you know that your home’s HVAC system needs routine maintenance just like your vehicle does? Regularly scheduled, seasonal HVAC maintenance not only ensures that you are getting the maximum comfort for the lowest possible costs, but more importantly, it also may help protect your family by catching carbon monoxide issues.

Carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless, and your heating system produces it by not completely burning the fuel. Only the newest furnaces can burn 100% of the fuel used for generating heat. Most people would not recognize the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. This is a serious problem in the winter months since most carbon monoxide exposures occur when the heating systems are working. Carbon monoxide can cause death to occur so quickly that the victim usually does not realize they are facing eminent danger. Many times when carbon monoxide leaks slowly into the home, the initial symptoms may appear to be symptoms of the flu. Some of the symptoms of a slow leak are:

>Fatigue
>Headache
>Slow thought processes
>Shortness of breath
>Nausea
>Dizziness

Occupants who are exposed to a high level of carbon monoxide may experience more severe symptoms including:

>Mental confusion
>Loss of muscular coordination
>Loss of consciousness
>Death

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends that your heating system be professionally inspected at regular intervals, including the beginning of the heating season.
