What is Carbon Monoxide?

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless and odourless gas, which therefore makes it very difficult to detect. Production of CO occurs as a result of the incomplete burning of materials that contain carbon, like wood, or gas in gas heaters. In a perfect world, the burning process would result in just water and carbon dioxide. But sometimes, if there isn't enough oxygen, or the burning process is somehow disrupted, it results in the production of carbon monoxide, a dangerous gas.

To minimise CO creation and remain protected against carbon monoxide leaks in the home, it's essential to ensure good ventilation and proper maintenance of all your gas-powered heating systems and appliances. Particularly as you may not be aware of the side effects of exposure.

Symptoms of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Understanding the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning can be lifesaving. If you suspect CO exposure, watch out for the following signs:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness
  • Upset stomach
  • Vomiting
  • Chest pain
  • Confusion
  • Flu-like symptoms

Symptoms can vary greatly in intensity. It is essential to call emergency services and seek medical attention immediately if you or someone else exhibits signs of CO poisoning, and to evacuate the affected area swiftly to prevent further exposure. Stay safe by recognising these symptoms promptly.

Carbon Monoxide Testing FAQ

Our experienced CO detectors have the answers to the most common questions about CO testing.
Carbon monoxide is produced anytime natural gas is burned, so gas space heaters, gas log fires and cookers that rely on gas all produce carbon monoxide. This is why gas appliances require an exhaust fan or flue, which is a form of chimney used to remove CO from within the home.
The best way to determine if carbon monoxide is present in your home is either with a carbon monoxide detector or with a smoke alarm that also has carbon monoxide detection capabilities. Alternatively, an air conditioning technician or plumber will also carry the required gear to test for carbon monoxide levels and repair potential leaks.
We recommend that you test any gas appliance in your home for carbon monoxide (CO) leaks at least once every two years. Regular testing can help in the early detection of potential CO leaks and ensure the safety of your household. Furthermore, always install a CO leak alarm and regularly replace its batteries to protect yourself from carbon monoxide poisoning. To have your gas appliances checked, always hire a licensed gasfitter accredited in Australia. Stay safe by maintaining regular checks and abiding by the Australian gas safety standards.
You can reduce the serious health risks of CO poisoning by making sure your gas appliances, such as a gas heater or stove, are installed correctly and are flued to outside the home. Repairs should be conducted immediately so gas cannot build up and a carbon monoxide detector can alert you to any present leaks. For professional appliance testing, repairs and installation, give the team at Metropolitan a call.
Carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO₂) are both colourless gases, but they have different properties and effects on humans. CO is a harmful gas produced from the incomplete combustion of fossil fuels, and it can be lethal in high concentrations. On the other hand, carbon dioxide is a natural byproduct of human and animal respiration, as well as combustion processes; it is generally harmless in the concentrations typically found in the environment, but can be dangerous at very high levels.
