Can My Heater Cause Carbon Monoxide?

The short answer is yes. Your furnace can potentially be releasing carbon monoxide inside your house. If an HVAC unit is not functioning correctly, carbon monoxide poisoning is a dangerous health hazard with a malfunctioning use of fuels. This is based from a study from the University of Rochester Medical Center.

Please note that an electric space heater, electric hot water heater and electric stoves do not pose a threat for carbon monoxide in the home.

What are signs of carbon monoxide in my house?

Carbon monoxide symptoms can include:

  • Feeling weak.

  • Feeling dizzy.

  • Frequent headaches.

  • Hard to catch your breath.

  • Feeling confused.

  • Vision is blurred.

  • Feeling confused.

  • Unconsciousness.

Take necessary steps to have your furnace serviced during the cold months of the year. Installing a carbon monoxide detector is another way to help keep your home and health protected. Whether you're needing a new heater or annual maintenance on your existing furnace make sure to use a licensed HVAC technician.
