If you have gas appliances installed in your home ensure they are checked by a 'Gas Safe' registered installer at least evey 12 months. As a gas engineer I'd just like to remind people how important it is that you don't let anybody who is unqualified do gas work in your home unless you are certain they are competent.

Everytime marney changes his name, his warns help to identify him. tongue.gif

And I go to CO "emergencies" all the time. Appliances being one of many causes from lack of maintenance or just going bad. Smoke and CO alarms save lives.

CO is a product of incomplete combustion, you're getting your 'gas leaks' mixed up. Natural gas is pretty harmless on its own but once you get a gas to air ratio of 5%-15% it becomes potentially explosive. So no - it's not a good idea to bash any exposed pipework.

I know. But I need something to keep me busy, it's either that or sticking my cock in the toaster and pissing inside. What can you do to help me Appliance Doctor?

Electricks? Never heard of that, are you sure you know what you're talking about? Basically I just want a setup where I can bash something that's potentially hazardous and gives me a slight thrill.

A pit bull. Make sure you're wearing trainers though.

I always park my car in my drive-in living room. Should I start to turn off the engine? I don't do that because I like how it sounds and it makes me sleepy at night which I need.




Seriously: CO is from incomplete combustion, why is that happening? And how do you prevent the stove/heater from combusting incomplete?

Sigh.

Get it serviced regularly and take note of the advice your gas engineer will give you.

No one uses gas for cooking in my part of the world, only electricity. Naturally I don't know much about it.

My house used a monitor heater for the longest time. In the last ten years or so we've had two CO leaks, the last one (2007) was bad enough that we had to go to the hospital to get oxygen for three fucking hours.

Use them alarms nigguz, they've saved my life more than once.




Woodstoves ftw

click my sig for a good time.

Scary stuff. I would not dare to use gas in my home, and if I had to I would install a ton of gas detectors.

Wood burning stoves can be lethal too. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions when burning any fuel, be it wood or fossil.
Never become complacent.
