As most people know by now, we all need carbon monoxide detectors in our homes, however what many people don’t realize is that there are right and wrong ways to install Carbon monoxide Detectors.
Carbon Monoxide it a highly poisonous gas which can’t be seen, tasted, or smelled. Dangerous levels of the gas can build up in and around the home when fossil fuels burn without enough oxygen.
The most common causes are faulty appliances such as furnaces, stoves, ovens, or idling engines such as your car in the garage or generators you might use during power black outs.
Dangerous build ups of CO gas can occur at any time and in any home – even if all your appliances are brand new.
The symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning can be very difficult to tell apart from other causes such as the flu, being intoxicated, or feeling tired – this can lead to poisoning and even loss of consciousness before you realize you’re in grave danger.
This is yet another reason why your CO Detectors need to be correctly installed and maintained.
