Testing for Carbon Monoxide Testing for Carbon Monoxide
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas. It is produced by the incomplete burning of solid, liquid, and gaseous fuels. Appliances fueled with natural gas, liquefied petroleum (LP gas), oil, kerosene, coal, or wood may produce CO. Burning charcoal produces CO. Running cars produce CO. Every year, more than 200 people in the United States die from CO produced by fuel-burning appliances (furnaces, ranges, water heaters, room heaters). Others die from CO produced while burning charcoal inside a home, garage, vehicle or tent. Still others die from CO produced by cars left running in attached garages. Several thousand people go to hospital emergency rooms for treatment for CO poisoning.
Household sources of carbon monoxide include room heaters, furnaces, charcoal grills, ranges, ovens, water heaters, autos in attached garages, and fireplaces.
The Professional Carbon Monoxide Test Kit test button changes color if carbon monoxide is present. The speed at which it changes determines the concentration. Click Here to buy the Professional Carbon Monoxide Test Kit by Pro Lab.
