If your water heater uses gas to heat the water it provides to your home or business, it’s important to know how to handle gas problems safely. An improperly maintained appliance can create carbon monoxide, which poses a serious health hazard if inhaled.
This video explains how carbon monoxide is formed as a result of natural gas combustion. Carbon monoxide can cause a number of health effects, including nausea, vomiting, headaches, and unconsciousness. Regular maintenance of your water heater can prevent carbon monoxide production, and a CO detector will warn you if this gas is present.
