At any level, the presence of carbon monoxide (CO) in a home is dangerous. Because you can’t see, taste or smell it, it can affect you or your family before you even know it’s there. Even at low levels of exposure, carbon monoxide can cause serious health problems, or even death.
So, how can you protect your family from carbon monoxide? The first step is to make sure that carbon monoxide is not present in the air in your home. The second step is to install one or more CO detectors in your home.
