What is Carbon Monoxide

Carbon monoxide is defined as a colorless, odorless, toxic, and flammable gas formed by incomplete combustion of carbon which can be lethal to humans if exposed to this gas for too long. On average, the United States sees 36 deaths per month, due to unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning. (Source)

How to Prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, having a minimum of one carbon monoxide detector on each floor of your home is a necessity.  Older heating systems such as boilers and furnaces, releases more carbon monoxide than newer and more efficient heating systems. Cranney Home Services can help by installing a complimentary carbon monoxide detector with the installation of a new heating system.
