The effects of the use of a carbon dioxide detector on the environment, public health, and public safety are well-documented.
The effects of such a device are often overlooked.
It is important to consider the potential for the presence of carbon monotoxins in the air to contribute to the adverse effects of CO 2 , including premature death, increased health risks, and a host of other adverse health outcomes.
In this article, we discuss the environmental effects of using a CO 2 detector in a home or commercial facility, the types of CO, and the benefits and drawbacks of using one.
We then provide an overview of the CO 2 detectors available and how to choose the right one.
Finally, we consider the advantages and disadvantages of using CO 2 for home and commercial ventilation.
