There are plenty of household appliances that can emit carbon monoxide, but one that most homeowners do not think about is their furnace. A furnace that has not been maintained or has an inadequate supply of oxygen may produce high levels of CO. Carbon monoxide is a silent and deadly gas.
If you do not maintain or repair your furnace as needed, then carbon monoxide could become an issue for your home and the safety of your family. There are things you can do at home to prevent CO poisoning or death, including:
Even with proper maintenance, there are other appliances in your home that emit this deadly gas, also known as the silent killer. You should use carbon monoxide detectors in the home, especially outside of your utility closet or room.
