Sure it does not...but the exhaust from NG or LPG does.
Scare tactics? I havent seen any. You want scare tactics, you really should
have been with me in the Gas Code class a couple of days ago...
Lets see...nice pics of what to look for on a dead body to see if it was CO
posioning (why we needed that I dont know) and a few local stories about
people that went for months, had complained in the past about odors, and
lost a kid, or a husband..etc..
Or the one that got me...
The AC tech that got killed while working on a unit...the homeowner had
tried to fix his furnace, and at some point, unknown to the tech, broken the
bond to the gas line, and when he ran the new electrical to it, had a staple
that had hit the hot leg, and the staple was making contact with the gas
line...the tech reached for it and was electrocuted.
Nope..havent seen scare tactic one said in here...gas appliances CAN and DO
First, you are replying to do different comments.
The op described the smell and it wasn't the
smell of gas combustion. Complete combustion
doesn't smell, most of the smell you get from
burning gas, is not a gas combustion product, it
is unburned gas and odors from the parts that get hot.
If you want to talk about meaningful numbers of
deaths and injuries try talking about falling down
in the bathroom. People die. However, accidents
cause relatively few deaths, and accidents where a
person did not do something really stupid such as
drive drunk, not look first, not put the draino
where the kid couldn't reach it, etc. result in
very few deaths statistically. Most people die of
heart disease. If they really cared, they
wouldn't smoke, they would stop eating 2000 more
calories per day than they burn, quit drinking 12
beers each night. The statistics say that CO
deaths are practically non existent. As an
individual precaution it makes sense, but as
advice to another it is a wasted of time. They
are going to die of something else.
