During the frigid winter months, heating your home is vital. An unfortunate risk that comes along with running the heat is carbon monoxide. Ordinarily, your HVAC system has a fan that draws the gas out. However, sometimes things that go wrong that prevent the fan from working properly. If this ever happens, your carbon monoxide detector could save your life!
Many common items can potentially emit carbon monoxide: car running in a closed garage, gas, oil, or kerosene heaters, gas oven or dryer, or even a fireplace burning. Some of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are dizziness, headaches, passing out, blurry vision, respiratory distress, weakness, and disorientation. If you feel any of these things but feel better after leaving your home for a while, you may want to have your home tested for carbon monoxide.
