Do you smell that? The apple cider, the pumpkin spice lattes, the leather footballs? Yes…fall is coming. Let’s get ready! Have you purchased your season tickets to your alma mater? Have you put away your shorts and wedges and pulled out your coats and boots? Have you replaced your cotton sheets with flannel sheets to help you stay cozy when the temperatures drop?

Have you inspected your home’s carbon monoxide detector?

 

Carbon monoxide, as told by the CDC, is generated by fireplaces, furnaces, stoves, and gas ranges. The odorless and colorless gas is known as the silent killer because it’s essentially undetectable without a carbon monoxide detector.

Carbon monoxide poisoning can be lethal to children, adults, and pets. Over 20,000 people end up in the emergency room annually due to carbon monoxide poisoning. Usual CO poisoning symptoms consist of dizziness and/or weakness, headache, and upset stomach. Because the symptoms imitate the flu, many people might not recognize they could be seriously ill.

With the drop in temperatures forcing homeowners to start up their furnaces, carbon monoxide poisoning spikes during the winter months while everyone is doing everything they can to stay comfortable. When properly installed by licensed professionals, devices such as furnaces will safety express carbon monoxide outdoors, but your furnace should be checked annually to make sure there are no issues that could produce poisoning from the odorless and colorless gas.
