Carbon Monoxide

Law requires carbon monoxide detectors in homes


Starting July 1, 2011 a new California law will go into effect requiring carbon monoxide detectors (Senate bill  SB 183).  California fire officials stated this new law will save lives. Carbon monoxide (commonly misspelled as carbom monoxide, carbon minoxide, monoxide carbon or CO2) is known as the silent killer. It is estimated that every year in the United States this odorless, colorless gas produced from carbon fired appliances kills 480 people and sends approximately 20,000 people annually to the emergency room throughout the United States.  Statistics, for other countries are not available but in other parts of the world where proper ventilation is questionable during cooking and heating could be  concern in many  fatalities.  Typical appliances that produce carbon monoxide are: fireplace, natural gas forced air furnaces, natural gas wall heaters, automotive fuel burning, natural gas floor heaters, kerosene heaters, charcoal burning, and other types of appliances and cooking devices produce carbon monoxide gas.

State Fire Marshall

The most appropriate way for homeowners to stay protected  from carbon monoxide gas says the state fire marshal is to have a carbon monoxide detector installed in every level of the residence and outside each sleeping area,  very similar to what is required for smoke detectors. To help educate homeowners about the new law and to encourage them to install a carbon monoxide detector the state fire marshal has teamed up with fire departments across the state and other professionals like myself to help get the word out to the general public.

Although previous laws required only new construction to have carbon monoxide detectors California  State Senate Bill 183 requires all existing single-family homes with attached garages or a fuel source to install carbon monoxide alarm devices within the home by July 1, 2011. Owners of multi-family leased or rental dwellings, such as apartment buildings have until January 1, 2013 to comply with the new law. However, I recommend  apartment owners to act now rather than wait as there may be shortages of supply in the near future which may cause prices to increase.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide in high levels can kill a person in minutes. Poorly maintained heating and cooking appliances that burn fossil fuel can be very hazardous and life-threatening. Fetuses, infants, elderly people, those with heart and respiratory diseases can be the greatest at risk. An Earthquake can cause disturbances in pipes which could cause carbon monoxide gas to infiltrate a residence.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Symptoms

Knowing the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning could save your life or a life of a loved one. At moderate levels carbon monoxide can cause headaches, dizziness, mental confusion, nausea and or fainting. It is possible to die at these levels if they continue and persist for a long time. Lower levels of carbon monoxide can cause shortness of breath, mild headaches, mild nausea and could have long-term effects on your health. Many of the same symptoms are from the flu, food poisoning, reaction to medications and her other illnesses are similar to carbon monoxide symptoms. During the winter months when heating systems are constantly working and during flu season it becomes very important for you to be cognize of your environment. Thus, having a carbon monoxide detection device could save your life, prevention is key. One area to be concerned with carbon monoxide gas, is in a gas fireplace log that is not vented directly to the exterior of the building, many of these gas logs are banned in California unless they are vented directly to the exterior chimney.
