description

The Carbon Monoxide sensor detects dangerous levels of CO in your home and triggers an audible alarm to warn you when CO levels are high, giving you ample time to get out of the house. Carbon monoxide is a natural by-product of many home appliances. If you use charcoal, gasoline, kerosene, wood, propane, natural gas or heating oil to create energy or heat – hot water heaters, grills, furnaces, fireplaces, stoves, room heaters, etc. – then there is potential for carbon monoxide in your home. CO is colorless, tasteless and odorless (unlike smoke from a fire), detection in a home environment is impossible without such a warning device.

 Recommendation:
  • Since we are most vulnerable to the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning while we sleep, it is important to place detectors near your family’s bedrooms. If you only have one CO alarm, place it as close to everyone’s sleeping area as possible.
  • Ideally, you should have carbon monoxide detectors placed throughout your home, as you do smoke alarms.
  • place a CO detector in each major area of your home:In your living/dining room, in your bedrooms, and the office.
  • If your furnace is located in the basement, be sure to place a CO detector there, as well.
  • If you have a gas clothes dryer, put an alarm in the laundry room.
  • Place one in the garage, if you park your cars there.
  • Wherever you have a solid fuel-fired appliance – anything that could produce carbon monoxide – you should also have a CO alarm.
Installation tips:
  • CO detector should never be blocked by furniture, curtains or other objects, as restricted airflow can affect its function.
  • CO detectors can be placed near the ceiling or near the floor because CO is very close to the same density as air.
    All Packages include Security decals, batteries, adhesive strips for easy mounting and optional screws for screw-in mounting.
