Breathe Right – Detecting the Silent Killer

There are several ways to stay healthy; eating right, exercising on a regular basis and living in a healthy environment. A person’s environment is just as important as someone’s diet and daily routine. The environment is what ties everything to together and allows you to not only be healthy, but stay healthy.

There are several environmental forces that can damage your health or cause temporary illnesses while residing in that environment. Carbon monoxide and mold are just a couple that can be detrimental to your health.

Carbon monoxide is a major concern for homeowners, especially ones with families. Carbon monoxide is odorless, tasteless and colorless, so what chances do you have? To the human senses, this toxin is undetectable. However, if you want to be able to detect the silent killer, you need assistance.

Home alarm systems that detect carbon monoxide are one of the only ways of becoming aware of a leak in your home. If you don’t have a carbon monoxide detector and home alarm system, then look for symptoms in your, your family’s and/or your pet’s health.

Minor cases of carbon monoxide exposure lead to:

  • constant headaches
  • flu-like symptoms
  • light headedness

Heavy exposure can lead to:

  • poisoning of the central nervous system and heart
  • brain damage

Carbon monoxide typically lasts for a short duration due to it mixing with oxygen to create carbon dioxide, but direct exposure of carbon monoxide and it being contained in a household brings about significant dangers to the people residing in the home. This is why a carbon monoxide detector and alarm system are beneficial to you and your family’s health.

Some of the causes of carbon monoxide if not ventilated properly include:

  • Gas water heaters
  • Smoking
  • Burning charcoal
  • Propane heaters and stoves

Using proper appliances that don’t emit carbon monoxide is the best way to avoid this issue. Do not smoke inside and keep your grill a good distance from your home. If you do have appliances that can cause carbon monoxide leaks, then investing in a home alarm system is the safest option of detecting the silent killer, so you can continue having a healthier you.
