  • Incomplete Combustion
    • Incomplete combustion happens when there is not enough oxygen to allow a fuel to burn completely 
    • Incomplete combustion produces water, some carbon dioxide, some carbon monoxide and carbon particles – the carbon particles are also known as soot
      • Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas – it reduces the amount of oxygen that a person’s blood can carry. Some faulty boilers produce carbon monoxide
      • Deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning can be reduced by having boilers serviced regularly, and by using carbon monoxide alarms.
