Propane appliances have a remarkable safety record – one of the best in the home comfort business.

But like any equipment that burns fuel inside your home, operating a propane appliance releases a small amount of carbon monoxide (CO) as a byproduct of the combustion process. In high enough concentrations, this invisible, odorless gas can cause respiratory distress or even death – one of the reasons why it critical to have CO detectors installed at every level of your North Carolina home.

The question is: do you know what to do when your CO detector alarm sounds, indicating high levels of carbon monoxide? Here are six steps you should take if your carbon monoxide detector sounds.
