Winter Carbon Monoxide Safety

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration reminds us that colorless, odorless, tasteless carbon monoxide is harmful when breathed because it displaces the oxygen in our blood thereby depriving our heart, brain and other vital organs of oxygen. Large amounts of CO can overcome you in mere minutes and without warning — causing you to lose consciousness and suffocate. The most common symptoms of CO poisoning are headache, dizziness, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion.

So what does snow have to do with Carbon Monoxide? Clear the snow from your furnace exhaust and intake pipes during heavy snowfalls. Blocked pipes can result in deadly carbon monoxide gas building up in your house. Also test carbon monoxide detectors to be sure that they are working.
