Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and Save Money with Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts

September 03, 2016

Do you smell that? The cinnamon pastries, the pumpkin spice lattes, the dry leaves? Mmm…fall is coming. Are you ready! Have you purchased your football tickets to your college team? Have you put away your tank tops and flip flops and pulled out your cardigans and boots? Have you changed your sheets from cotton to flannel to help you stay comfy when the cold sets in?

Have you checked your home’s carbon monoxide detector?

 

Carbon monoxide, according to the CDC, is given off by fireplaces, furnaces, stoves, and gas ranges. The colorless and odorless gas is often called the silent killer because it’s virtually undetectable without a carbon monoxide detector.

Carbon monoxide poisoning can be deadly to adults, children, and pets. Over 20,000 people visit the emergency room every year because of carbon monoxide poisoning. Common CO poisoning symptoms include dizziness, headache, chest pain, and upset stomach. Since the symptoms mimic the flu, many people might not recognize they could be very ill.

With cooler temperatures causing homeowners to start up their furnaces, carbon monoxide poisoning spikes during the cold months while everyone is doing everything they can to stay comfortable. When properly installed by trained experts, devices such as furnaces will safety release carbon monoxide outdoors, but your furnace should be inspected each year to verify there are no issues that could produce poisoning from CO.

Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts says you should be replacing household carbon monoxide detectors every five years, and testing your carbon monoxide and fire detectors each month to verify the batteries and alarm are working properly. Today is an excellent time to check your home’s CO and smoke detectors, and install or replace them if needed.
