If you have carbon monoxide detectors installed, they'll sound the alarm when a dangerous buildup of this deadly gas occurs, whether as a result of poorly vented Boston heating and cooling systems, a badly laid fire, automobile exhaust, or any number of other things. A carbon monoxide detector paired with a fire detector can save your life and that of your family members, so it's totally worth the investment -- and if you're a renter, your landlord may agree to pay for one as part of the safety systems in your home.

Just this morning, eight people were taken to the hospital after a carbon monoxide leak in the Boston area. 170 people die every year from CO poisoning: don't be one of them!
