    Really? Carbon Monoxide? Because I went through 20 hits from AC companies and scientific papers that say ACs do NOT emit carbon dioxide as they are operating via electricity and NOT fossil fuel.

  2. I have a window A/C heater that has never worked properly My building was rennovated 5 years ago, yet when it was not working during summer heat the A/C tech stated he doubt he would be able to locate the part. I presume my landlord billed for new but left the old during a major rennovation. Tech repaired and pumped freon in. . And the landlord never cleans/flushes. If it runs on 75 or 80 it here is no variance it is one constant freezing temperature. My eyes burn, skin itches and I sleep poorly. Always leave the windows open. Could there be a leak. And since I am a tenant I must use their service people. What would I asked to be checked or can I call EPA for such. We have a fire alarm carbon monoxide sensor and at night I see it emitting a continual half circl of red light, whereas in the say the red dot only appears overhead from it.

      I’m sorry to hear that Diane. The symptoms you are describing, such as burning eyes, itchy skin, and difficulty sleeping, are consistent with carbon monoxide poisoning. It is produced when fuel is burned incompletely, such as in a furnace, stove, or fireplace.

      The fact that your carbon monoxide sensor is emitting a continuous half circle of red light at night is also a cause for concern. This indicates that the sensor is detecting carbon monoxide levels that are above the safe limit.

      I would recommend that you contact your landlord immediately and inform them of the situation. They should send a qualified technician to inspect your A/C unit and carbon monoxide sensor. The technician should also check for any leaks in your A/C unit.

      You can also call the EPA’s National Poison Control Center for more information about carbon monoxide poisoning.
