Common Exposures to Carbon Monoxide
Combustion engines are the most common sources of carbon monoxide, as this is the gas that is produced when oil, gasoline, charcoal, and kerosene are burned as fuel.
Common household and workplace sources include:
- Furnaces and boilers
- Gas and wood-burning fireplaces
- Hot water heaters
- Charcoal grills
- Space heaters
In most cases, these types of engines are properly vented and carbon monoxide does not build up. However, when a vent is blocked or carbon monoxide is otherwise unable to escape, it can build to dangerous levels. Any unintended opening can also cause a leak, allowing carbon monoxide to be released into an area that it was not intended to go. Any individuals in the vicinity may be drastically affected, becoming incapacitated and injured, often fatally, as the gas overwhelms their bodies.
