The Dangers of Carbon Monoxide
Carbon monoxide is a tasteless, odorless, and colorless gas. In other words, it’s undetectable—the only way you’d be aware of it is with the presence of a properly installed carbon monoxide detector installed in your Hendersonville, TN home.
Of course, there are also physical symptoms that you or your family members can be impacted by this harmful gas—dizziness, headaches, nausea, light–headedness, sleepiness, fatigue and weakness, irregular breathing, shortness of breath, confusion, and even chest pains. Ideally though, we’d like you to never get to this point.
Professional Carbon Monoxide Detector Installation
If you are sleeping when carbon monoxide poisoning occurs, it can make you ill before you’ve even had a chance to recognize any of the above symptoms. This is a large part of the reason that it’s so imperative to have a carbon monoxide detection device installed. This way, you can have the peace of mind that you’ll be warned should this dangerous substance leak into your home.
The risk of carbon monoxide leaks can be exacerbated by a few factors—if you utilize gas appliances like a gas range and stove, gas–powered clothes dryer, water heater, furnace, or gas or wood fireplace. It’s most likely to build up in poorly ventilated areas such as your garage, due to car exhaust, or even your living room due to a clogged chimney or flue. Almost all Hendersonville area homeowners have some carbon monoxide risk.
