dangers of carbon monoxideThere’s no question that Carbon Monoxide is dangerous—it’s odorless, tasteless, and it’s possible to expose you and your family to this danger with everyday household appliances.  

With all the information, detectors, and indicators that are out there, how can you be sure that your home (and your family) is protected?

One of the most common perceptions is that a gas furnace can be a major contributor to carbon monoxide poisoning—more specifically that a cracked heat exchanger will introduce carbon monoxide into the air in your home. A heat exchanger separates the warm air that is circulated through your home from poisonous carbon monoxide gas created during the combustion process when you operate your furnace.

Although there’s a chance that you might see some issues with carbon monoxide, there are several other things in your home that could be as dangerous (or more dangerous) than a cracked heat exchanger on your HVAC system.
