RIDGEWAY Plumbing and Heating | Carbon Monoxide.

Carbon Monoxide - the silent killer

What is it?

Carbon Monoxide is a highly poisonous gas produced when any fossil fuel burns incompletely. It has no smell, no taste and no colour. It leaks from flues, cooking and heating appliances when they have been poorly maintained or simply break down. Even adverse weather conditions are a known cause behind CO leaks that can prove fatal.

How does it effect your health?

Carbon Monoxide bonds with the haemoglobin in the blood stream and subsequently replaces the oxygen needed to sustain your brain and body. It can kill quickly when it leaks in large quantities or can build up over a period of time, initially causing symptoms such as headaches, nausea and dizzyness. These are often incorrectly diagnosed by the medical proffession as flu.

What Can you do to protect yourself?

Always ensure that your gas applicances are annually serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer. For added safety and peace of mind you should fit an alarm which is officially approved and kitemarked to the latest European Standard EN50291.
