Carbon Monoxide – The Silent Killer
Carbon monoxide is a deadly gas that can be produced when your gas ducted heater or wall furnace doesn’t completely burn the gas it uses. Some of the causes are a fault in the heater, poor maintenance and servicing or a blocked flue. Carbon monoxide is called the silent killer because it is invisible and odourless so you won’t know its present until its too late.
Some of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include:
- Shortness of breath
- Mild or severe headaches
- Nausea and vomiting
- Weakness and sleepiness
If the poisoning is servere, it may lead to confusion, loss of consciousness and death. Loss of consciousness can occur quickly if the CO concentrations are high.
