Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, initially non-irritating gas that may be produced by the incomplete combustion of an appliance burning fuels, such as natural gas, liquid propane (LP), coal, kerosene, wood or charcoal.


Symptoms of CO exposure often go undetected and range from a simple headache or confusion to nausea and impaired vision or even death. CO can be caused by improperly installed or maintained appliances, fuel-burning space heaters, fireplaces, vehicle exhaust, and more.

A carbon monoxide detector can help keep you and your family safe by providing a warning signal to protect against dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.
