How can I tell if my boiler pilot is leaking carbon monoxide? How can I tell if my boiler pilot is leaking carbon monoxide?
A properly functioning boiler pilot won't be emitting carbon monoxide, however, rather than take a chance with that, it is a good idea to install carbon monoxide detectors in your home or apartment. The news today is filled with stories of families whose lives were saved from the ravages of the unseen, fatal emission because they took the time to purchase and install carbon monoxide detectors. Other than that the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include disorientation, slurred speech, an inability to reason clearly and irritability. If you experience any of these symptoms and you have been fine until you arrived home, evacuate the premises until the local authorities can check for carbon monoxide leakage.
