Carbon monoxide (known by the chemical abbreviation CO) is often referred to as a “silent killer.” This toxic gas is produced by malfunctioning fuel-burning devices or by other common household appliances.  It has no smell and can’t be seen with the naked eye but is fatal to humans in relatively small doses. Even when it isn’t fatal, it can cause lasting health effects in the vascular and pulmonary systems.  By making yourself aware of the causes and warning signs, purchasing and correctly installing CO detectors, and remaining diligent about monitoring, you can prevent harmful CO accumulation in your home.
