Dangers of Carbon Monoxide
If you have a faulty gas appliance or boiler and is giving off carbon monoxide fumes, it can be lethal to you and your family's health.
Carbon monoxide is incredibly harmful when breathed because it will displace oxygen in the blood and deprive your heart, brain and other vital organs of oxygen. Large amounts of Carbon Monoxide can overcome you in minutes, and in so many cases, without warning, it can cause you to lose consciousness and suffocate.
Breathing Carbon Monoxide can cause vomiting, and nausea, headache and dizziness. It is best that during your gas safety check, our Gas Safe registered engineer will do a visual inspection of pipework and a tightness test to confirm there aren't any gas leaks that can cause Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
Carbon Monoxide is a highly poisonous gas that can be especially deadly because you can't see, taste or smell it.
Gas and Carbon Monoxide Emergencies - what to do?
