The Dangers Of Co2 Generators

Co2 is a necessity for the indoor grower. Claims have been made of 20% to 60% increase in growth rate and harvest. Plants that receive Co2 have more resistance to pest and disease. Most growers are growing in there home with grow rooms right next to the bedrooms or in there basements.

When you ad a Co2 tank the risk is minimal, raising your ppm to 150o, which is within human tolerance. When you add a Co2 generator you are now burning gas to produce the Co2 and a by product of this is Carbon Monoxide. In a sealed room these gasses can build up.

Homemade generators can be very dangrous. Using fumes from a water heater or furnace just seems dumb. So does using a propane heater or lantern. They produce Carbon Monoxide which can be lethal. It takes about 5 hours of fresh air to reduce the levels of carbon monoxide in your blood to 1/2.

In the winter people are at a higher risk of Carbon Monoxide poisning. Furnices are being used after a year of sitting idle. We are spending a lot more time inside. If you are using a Co2 generator make sure you have carbon monoxide detectors around the house(one on each level).
