For public safety reasons, the Macau SAR Government has banned the provision or sale of gas water heaters without exhaust pipes, according to a dispatch published in the Official Gazette yesterday.
The measure is an effort to reduce incidences of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, sometimes resulting in death, that have been associated with the use of this type of device both recently and in the past.
Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that has no smell or taste. Symptoms of mild CO poisoning include dizziness, nausea, headaches and fatigue. Exposure to high levels of CO can cause severe symptoms such as vertigo, seizures, loss of consciousness and even death.
The Macau SAR Government has banned the import of gas water heaters without exhaust pipes since 2010, according to an official dispatch.
