The Importance of Carbon Dioxide and Monoxide Safety Checks.  

The topic of carbon dioxide monitoring is gaining considerable attention, as it is important for improved indoor air quality. Exposure to higher contents of carbon dioxide can not only be harmful but fatal. The reason is that the gas is colorless and odorless. The inability to see, smell or feel the gas fumes in the environment can be deadly if not detected at the right time. That is why carbon dioxide monitoring enables the detection of the contents of CO2 in the environment and helps to maintain safe levels for the safety of people. 

Similarly, carbon monoxide monitoring is equally important because it is also colorless and odorless. However, unlike CO2, it is a toxic and poisonous gas that can kill people before they even know it. The impact of carbon monoxide can vary with age, health conditions and length of exposure. One of the leading causes of carbon monoxide poisoning in Australia is leakage from different HVAC systems, like central heating systems, gas ducted systems and air conditioning units. 

According to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), while the lower concentration of carbon monoxide can result in fatigue and chest pain in those exposed to the gas fumes for a longer period, the higher concentration in the environment can cause nausea, flu-like symptoms, and impaired vision. At very high concentrations, exposure to CO can be deadly as well. Similarly, higher contents of carbon dioxide can affect human cognition and decrease productivity. The concentration of CO higher than 100,000 ppm can lead to unconsciousness, while more than 250,000 ppm leads to death. 


While adequate ventilation is important to ensure safety levels, you cannot ignore carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide monitoring. As a HVAC service provider in the industry for more than 35 years, we know the dangers of exposure to these toxic gases. That is why, we have introduced our own carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide monitoring equipment. The CO2 monitor features a simple design and is easy to use, as it doesn’t require calibration. Its multi-detection feature enables users to monitor not only CO2 but also HCHO, PM, temperature and humidity. The 16-bit full-HD screen with color labelling ensures quick identification of air quality, and you can also use your smartphone to check the levels on the go.
