The article provides information on the dangers posed by the use of gas appliances at home or in various companies in the U.S. These consumers should have safe operating equipment that lessens the dangers of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning from incomplete combustion. It has been emphasized that there is no substitute for an annual inspection of fuel-fired appliances at home to ensure safety. An installation of a CO alarm is helpful since this will detect the presence of the deadly gas.
