Carbon Monoxide is a Deadly and underestimated Killer
It is not something you should take lightly or leave to just anyone to determine if your appliances are combusting safely.
Typically, HVAC technicians and home inspectors only perform carbon monoxide tests using a hand-held ambient carbon monoxide detector. You want to avoid ambient-only testing. This type of service is not thorough and misses a lot of problems. An ambient CO test is very dangerous because it can conceal hazardous CO levels in the appliance. It also doesn't show any mechanical problems that may cause any rise in CO levels when the appliance ignites, starts, and stops. Another problem it won't detect is if any combustion air problems are causing high levels of CO.
A complete combustion analysis with an ambient air test will fully reveal any dangerous levels of carbon monoxide inside the appliance, which could be a hidden problem. A combustion analysis test with a combustion analyzer will correctly and accurately determine if gas appliances combust safely. When testing atmospheric drafting gas appliances, a draft test is included.
