The dangers of Carbon Monoxide (CO) | Orbit Plumbing

The dangers of Carbon Monoxide (CO).


If you suspect that one of your gas appliances is leaking carbon monoxide please contact us to speak with an Orbit Plumber Mornington Peninsula.

Carbon Monoxide is an extremely dangerous gas. It is completely odorless, tasteless, colorless and at first non-irritating. It is extremely difficult for anyone to detect. You require a Carbon Monoxide detector that our Frankston Plumber can install to sense its presence correctly.

Our Mornington Plumber say’s Carbon Monoxide occurs when gas does not burn properly. It usually occurs when a heater does not have a sufficient supply of oxygen to burn the gas completely.

If you inhale to much Carbon Monoxide you will get Carbon Monoxide poisoning. When inhaled, the Carbon Monoxide absorbs into the blood stream and combines with hemoglobin to create carboxyhemoglobin in the blood. The carboxyhemoglobin stops the hemoglobin carrying oxygen to the bodies tissues reducing how much oxygen the blood can carry.

The effects of carbon monoxide poisoning can be reversed under medical supervision if death does not occur although this can be a long process.

A Mild case of carbon Monoxide poisoning will show symptoms:
