Can wood-burning stoves cause carbon monoxide poisoning?

A Answers (1)

  • Wood-burning stoves, like any other fuel-burning appliances, can cause carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. If a wood-burning stove is improperly ventilated or installed, it can increase the amount of CO indoors. Be sure wood-burning stoves are properly adjusted and any ventilation systems are working properly and not blocked.
