Carbon Monoxide Threat in My Home
Carbon monoxide can be a stealthy threat to your home. This danger is not an idle spook but can impact your family's health and safety. We think of Carbon Monoxide with gas fires and auto emissions, carbon monoxide poisoning can accumulate in a home unless precautions are taken. The threat is odorless.
ERA Climate Tests your Carbon Monoxide emissions with Fall Maintenance. Special focus is given to test indoor air quality in the home.
***ERA Recommends a Carbon Monoxide Alarm mounted at outlet level and plugged in with a battery backup. Location matters and keep it where you sleep in a bedroom. Your typical detector will alarm at 100ppm exposure.
ERA's Carbon Monoxide Device detects the smallest exposure of CO at 9ppm.
Call ERA and plan your Fall Maintenance 903-553-1199
Caution, the symptoms of Carbon Monoxide are easily overlooked and often flulike.

Medium exposure can cause a severe throbbing headache, drowsiness, disorientation, confusion and an accelerated heart rate, 400ppm 1 to 2 hours
Extreme exposure can lead to unconsciousness, convulsions, cardiorespiratory failure, coma and possibly death, 800ppm 2 to 3 hours
