Carbon Monoxide Testing In Home

Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that doesn’t have a smell or taste. Breathing carbon monoxide can make you sick or even kill you if you breathe in high levels. Once carbon monoxide is breathed in it enters the bloodstream and mixed with hemoglobin which prevents the blood from being able to carry oxygen. This can cause cells and tissue to die.

How to Prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?

It is important to maintain all gas appliances that are used in your home or business. The most common cause of carbon monoxide poisoning is when people use old or damaged equipment that hasn't been checked for many years.

Gas appliances should be installed by a licenced professional. Leaking gas is no joke. If you do not have experience with installing gas appliances, there are many things that can go wrong and even turn deadly. It’s simply not worth the risk to try to install gas appliances to save a few dollars. Mr Plumber is fully qualified and licensed to install all kinds of appliances from heaters, and stoves to hot water systems.

How Often Should Gas Appliances be Tested?

Gas appliances should be tested at least every two years at a minimum. If appliances are used frequently  they should be tested every year. Gas appliances should be tested by a licenced plumber and gasfitter. Mtr Plumber are licences, qualified and experienced to conduct all kinds of gas and carbon monoxide testing.

If we identify a CO spillage at your property, it is required to be fixed immediately as it is considered a serious safety and health risk. Your appliances may need to be disconnected until they can be repaired.

Additional ventilation may be required if we detect a negative pressure situation.

What is a Negative Pressure Test?

When it comes to carbon monoxide negative pressure testing, we’ll test how extraction fans remove air from the premises. If the volume of pressure creates a negative pressure it can cause carbon monoxide and other gasses to enter the room. One method of ensuring that this does not occur is to open a door or window. However, this is inconvenient as most people run heaters during the winter when it’s impractical to leave doors or windows open. When negative pressure is detected, additional ventilation will need to be installed.

What Happens if Negative Pressure is Not Rectified?

Negative pressure is a health risk and appropriate ventilation will need to be installed.

Carbon Monoxide Alarms are not a replacement for proper testing!

You can install a carbon monoxide alarm in your home or business to alert you if there is a carbon monoxide leak or excessive carbon monoxide levels. However don’t substitute proper maintenance and servicing of appliances with a carbon monoxide alarm.
