Winter Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Dangers

Filed under: Fire Safety,Personal Safety — admin @ 10:47 am

Just about this time of year we experince the the sudden drop in temperature as the cold damp air starts to creep into our homes. Now is the perfect time to be turning up the thermostat on the gas central heating system or even turn on the gas fire in the living room – just to take the chill out of the air.

One of the major problems with fuel burning appliances is that – if they are not running efficiently they will cause Carbon Monoxide, which will kill you. Carbon Monoxide is tasteless, odourless and colourless making it difficult to detect if it is leaking from a gas appliance. One of the best ways of alerting you that Carbon Monoxide is present in your room is to have a alarm that detects this killer.

One of the best Carbon Monoxide Alarms available is the Battery Powered Electronic Carbon Monoxide Alarm which is also guaranteed for 5 years. Around 30 and 50 people die each year from carbon monoxide poisoning. Even a small dose of carbon monoxide poisoning can be very harmful to an individual – signs of carbon monoxide poisoning are headaches, vertigo, and flu-like effects. Again it is very difficult to tell the difference between carbon monoxide poisoning and contracting the flu around this time of year. Carbon monoxide poisoning is the most common type of fatal poisoning in the UK. By installing a Carbon Monoxide Alarm you can help detect this silent killer early enough.
