Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Smoke Detectors
CO Detectors (Carbon Monoxide)
Vitally important for your health and safety of your home and family, CO & Smoke Detectors have to be regularly checked and tested. Both units can be plugged in or battery operated, but almost all models have a battery back-up installed in case of a power outage.
Carbon Monoxide is a color-less and odor-less gas that settles very quickly, but can build up over time due to a faulty furnace, oven or range. Because you can’t smell it or see it, it can render you unconscious without you even realizing it and cause a range of health issues. This is why it’s so important to have CO detectors installed in the proper locations and regularly maintained by testing and checking their batteries.
