Carbon Monoxide Testing Services In Westchester
Air quality is vital, especially when harmful chemicals or gasses are involved like carbon monoxide. This substance can build up to a lethal amount inside a home.
Carbon monoxide testing can be done by our professionals at Clover Heating & Cooling, so you know whether there’s a problem or not.
Carbon monoxide is released by fuel-burning appliances or engines. Gas furnaces and fireplaces are common here in New York. You should always have your gas appliances tested before you turn them on for the season. Gas water heaters and stoves should be regularly tested.
If you need carbon monoxide testing, call our New York HVAC contractors at Clover Heating & Cooling. We have the proper certification and equipment to test for this dangerous gas.
Carbon Monoxide Monitors
Low-level carbon monoxide monitors will detect levels of CO below 30 ppm (parts per million). Standard CO alarms alert you only when levels are above 70 ppm. The low-level detectors will alert you when there are potentially dangerous levels.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the exposure limit is 9 ppm. Firefighters won’t enter an area without a breathing apparatus if the carbon monoxide level is greater than 35 ppm.
This low-level carbon monoxide monitor does NOT replace testing.
It is vital to get your home tested for carbon monoxide whether you have a monitor or not. Low levels can still be dangerous.
Numerous studies show they are. A UCLA study discovered that CO levels at only 5 ppm contributed to pregnant women delivering underweight babies with smaller heads.
