The venting systems of forced air gas furnaces are designed to divert CO and prevent it from being released into the home. However, improperly installed fans can lead it to happen. Thus, residents are advised to have their fuel-powered heating appliances inspected at least annually. If there’s a need for furnace installation in Toronto to replace failed units, the job must be performed by licensed and experienced contractors.
It’s difficult for residents to tell if they’ve been exposed to CO or not because this gas is odourless. However, signs of CO poisoning are flu-like symptoms, headaches, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, breathing difficulties, and mental confusion. An extreme case of CO poisoning can lead to coma, convulsions, and far worse.”
