Carbon Monoxide tests

What is the harmful effect of Carbon Monoxide?

Carbon monoxide consists of one carbon atom and one oxygen atom. It is a colourless, odourless, and tasteless gas. It is slightly less dense than air. It is poisonous to humans when encountered in concentrations above about 35 ppm. However it has a role in the formation of ground-level ozone.

Carbon monoxide poisoning is the most common type of fatal air poisoning. Being a toxic gas with no specific taste & odour it is quite difficult to detect. This is one reason it is called “Silent Killer!” When exposed to this lethal gas by breathing an individual can feel headache, breathing problem, fatigue, dizziness, suffocation among many other symptoms. Prolonged exposure can result in death. The leading source of this gas are our heating appliances like hot water heaters, dryers, gas stoves, gasoline barbecue grills etc. If you want to ensure the safety of your family and your loved ones, it is very important to consult an expert in order to get Carbon Monoxide Testing done for all your heating appliances.
