The mere nature of carbon monoxide creates challenging investigations. It takes a unique understanding to investigate incidents because it involves something deadly, yet unable to be detected by sight, 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 the 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.
