We continually hear about carbon monoxide detectors for our homes, but what about at our businesses? Regardless if you have gas, oil or wood/coal, it might be a good idea to have one. Even with high-efficiency furnaces and boilers, if the combustion air intake should get blocked you could produce carbon monoxide. It might be especially important if you have any older boiler. The CDC states that 500 people each year die from Carbon Monoxide poisoning, although most of these occurrences are in homes, Twenty percent (20%) of incidents occur in businesses of various types.
In winter time the chances of carbon monoxide poisoning are greatly increased. Carbon Monoxide detectors have to be installed separately from a traditional HVAC system.
