Byproducts of Natural Gas

Byproducts of natural gas include carbon dioxide and water vapor.  Complete combustion of gas produces a harmless mixture of these two byproducts.  However, when a fuel is burned without proper air for complete combusion, a toxic gas called carbon monoxide may be produced.  Incomplete combustion could happen for a number of reasons:

  • Insuffient air supply for complete combustion
  • Improper venting of equipment
  • Faulty appliances (have your appliances checked by a professional regularly)
  • Lack of ventilation around appliances (keep your furnace rooms clean)
