Why is Carbon Monoxide so Bad?

Carbon monoxide might be a life and death situation, so it’s not a situation to joke about.

1. You Can’t Taste It

Carbon monoxide is hazardous because you cannot see it, sense it with your nose or detect it with your taste buds. It’s not as dangerous in little doses and can’t be purified.

2. It Can Be Fatal Within Minutes

Carbon monoxide is a result of spent fuel. It can get into your home during the heating season if the heat exchanger on your gas furnace fails. Based on how big the leak is and the ventilation in a home, the gas may become lethal in just a few minutes.

Once inhaled, it has a half-life of about five hours. If you are breathing clean air, it requires five hours to take it out of your body. It will take an additional five hours to reduce that concentration by half.

3. Carbon Monoxide Reaction Can Mimic Other Illnesses

It can also mimic illnesses that can be mistaken as the flu, viral infections and chronic fatigue syndrome, among other things.

How to Guard Your Home from Carbon Monoxide

There’s no justification to take a chance with carbon monoxide poisoning.
