Carbon Monoxide (CO) Leak at Walt Whitman Mall

Our hearts go out to all of the people and families affected by the Carbon Monoxide leak at the Walt Whitman mall. This was a sad and unnecessary fiasco. Getting a good CO detector is a no-brainer for a natural gas system. The consequences are too extreme.

Regardless of what type of heating system you have, make sure to have a CO detector on each floor of your house, and change the batteries at a maximum of 1 year (or as needed before 1 year).

For everyone that currently has or is thinking of switching to natural gas, this is a chilling reminder that cost isn’t the only variable.

Carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a silent killer, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that utility gas home heating systems are the leading cause of carbon monoxide deaths in the United States. When utility gas systems malfunction, they produce deadly, invisible, odorless carbon monoxide, giving no warning of any problems before it’s too late. Oilheat systems, on the other hand, produce noticeable odors and visible warning signs if there is ever a problem, alerting the homeowner before the CO reaches dangerous levels in the home.
