Can a Gas Fireplace Cause Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?

Carbon monoxide poisoning can severely damage the human nervous and respiratory systems, as well as the brain and heart. Carbon monoxide can even cause death if the gas deprives the body of enough oxygen.

Carbon monoxide poisoning is a significant health risk to occupants in residential homes and commercial buildings, especially during the winter months, when gas fireplaces are frequently used.

According to the U.S. CDC, between 2010 and 2015, at least 2,244 deaths were caused by unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning, with the highest numbers of deaths each year occurring during the cold season. In 2015 alone, 393 deaths resulting from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning occurred, with 36% of the deaths occurring in December, January, or February.

Over 50,000 people visit hospital emergency rooms each year due to accidental carbon monoxide poisoning, according to the CDC. Annual deaths have also increased, with at least 430 in 2016, up from 393 in 2015.
