Carbon Monoxide News - July 8, 2012

“The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.” Emily Dickinson (1830-1886, bio link) 

The more testing of air for CO that takes place along with the testing of combustion gases will result in safer systems and buildings if corrections are made. Remember that CO may be intermittently generated because of some building pressure occurrence that interferes with the normal workings of specific types of appliances, particularly those that have atmospheric draft. Building pressures tests are vitally important for safety and efficiency.

The more that health symptoms are recognized and the more COHb% testing that occurs, the greater the likelihood of improved health for many people. All of these tasks put together will also save many lives. Are you responsible for the air that someone breathes?

It is always a good day when there are no poisonings that come to me over the wire services. Every day is a carbon monoxide safety education day.
