Carbon Monoxide

We include this important testing as part of the normal home inspection. Carbon Monoxide (CO) is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in the United States. It is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless poison gas that can be fatal when inhaled, and it is known as “the silent killer” because it cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted.
CO is produced by furnaces, common household appliances, unvented kerosene and gas space heaters, automobile exhaust, generators, fireplaces, and other systems that are powered by the burning of fuel that includes, but is not limited to, natural gas, propane, gasoline, oil, and wood.
