Winter has begun. As the temperature decreases, we can feel the cold around us. This also means that now the days where we shower with cold water are over.
The cold water does not only seem unbearable but also has adverse health effects.
Generally, we use hot water or heat the water with the help of a rod or electric geyser or gas geyser during winter.
If we are to use gas geyser, we must be careful.
This blog covers the safety precautions that can be adapted while using a gas geyser.
Because of the affordable price and the lightweight, people prefer gas geyser to other heating sources. This is one of the reasons for its high demand in the market nowadays.
But there are numerous aspects to be taken into consideration while using geyser. If not used properly, it can take lives too.
Use of Gas Geyser:
If you use a geyser in a closed space, it increases the proportion of carbon monoxide in the surrounding while consuming available oxygen. The formed carbon monoxide is quite hard to detect as it is odourless and colourless. Carbon monoxide has been proven to be dangerous.
So, how do we know the presence of carbon monoxide while we shower? The major symptoms include headache, dizziness, and vomiting. The person might even faint due to insufficient oxygen. As the doors are usually locked when we shower, we might not know that the person inside has fainted. Due to this, we might not rescue the person on time leading to the death of the person.
It is advisable to install the geyser machine outside the bathroom and let the hot water flow through a pipe. Furthermore, it is suggested to install geyser in a well-ventilated room. We advise you to not use a geyser in a place where air cannot enter or exit. There have been numerous death reports in the past few years because of the carelessness while using a geyser.
If you are looking forward to buying a geyser, we advise you to opt for an electric one.
