Warning Signs

How to tell if you are at risk…

There are signs that incomplete combustion is occurring, resulting in the production of CO.

These include:

  • Yellow or orange flames rather than blue
  • Soot or yellow/brown staining around or on appliances
  • Pilot lights that frequently blow out
  • Increased condensation inside windows.

If you suspect carbon monoxide is present, follow this simple guide: T.A.S.K.

  • T: Turn off or extinguish the heating source / appliance (if safe to do so).
  • A: Air – ventilate your home by opening windows and doors, stay outside in the fresh air.

  • K: Keep all heating sources/appliances off until serviced (or chimney / flue cleaned) by a qualified professional.
