What is Carbon Monoxide?

CO is produced by the incomplete burning of fuels such as coal, wood, oil and natural gas. The shortage of oxygen leads to the creation of CO instead of the usually produced carbon dioxide CO2. Carbon monoxide is produced when a fuel is not burnt properly. The most common sources are faulty boilers, gas fires and cookers.
