Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

 

by Debra Lynn Dadd

 

 

Q:

 

Can you tell me if there is research or info in regards to the safety or harm in using propane lighting? We have all gas appliances and I wonder if we are slowly poisoning ourselves. I do keep windows open even in the winter... Thank you!!

A:

 

All propane lights--and other appliances that burn natural or propane gas, kerosene, or wood--produce toxic combustion by-products to a greater or lesser degree depending on how complete the combustion is. You can find out the level of combustion by-products in your home with a carbon monoxide monitor. Carbon monoxide is only one of the combustion by-products, but measuring the level of this one by-product will tell you if you have low or high levels of all of them as a group. Anyone who burns gas, kerosene, or wood for cooking, warmth, or any other purpose should have a carbon monoxide monitor.
