Some 65 million American homes have appliances safely powered by natural gas. However, it’s an energy source that has its dangers. If a gas line, appliance or connection springs a leak or malfunctions, the poisonous gas can escape into your home. If it doesn’t burn fully and correctly, toxic carbon dioxide can result. Breathing both can have an ill effect on your well being and possibly be fatal. Be aware of the symptoms and what to do if you get poisoned.

Natural gas leaks can be indicated by the distinctive rotten eggs odor or detected through other signs (see our guide to gas leak detection). But even with caution taken, sometimes you might still breathe in natural gas or carbon dioxide (created when natural gas is burned). Both can be poisonous and even fatal, though if you act quickly the symptoms and effects are usually only temporary.
Keep yourself and your family safe with a natural gas/carbon monoxide detector.
