Carbon Monoxide

UNCOVER WHAT EVEN THE SENSES CAN’T DETECT

  • The mere nature of carbon monoxide creates for challenging investigations. It takes a unique understanding to investigate incidents involving something so deadly that you can’t see, smell, or taste. It also takes a team with the right equipment, experience, training, and expertise.
  • The licensed engineers at AEI have investigated more than 300 carbon monoxide incidents across the country. We have state-of-the-art combustion analyzers for field and lab testing all types of gas appliances. We also have the capability to remotely monitor CO concentrations at multiple locations inside structures.
  • Full documentation capabilities allow us to capture the photos and video that can be a make or break part of this type of investigation. After all, these may be all an engineer has when evaluating the installation and other vital conditions.
  • We also understand how crucial it is in the testing phase to duplicate incident conditions, because ambient temperature can significantly influence results.
  • Our investigations strictly adhere to ASTM E860 protocols for handling and preservation of evidence.
  • Our engineers are also court-qualified and nationally-recognized as expert witnesses regarding code compliance and manufacturing standards for gas equipment.
