Carbon monoxide poisoning is the leading cause of accidental poisoning in the United States. This odorless, invisible gas is the result of natural processes, and is usually present in the home only at low levels. However, the everyday activities of cooking, grilling, clothes drying and heating our homes sometimes cause these levels to rise.Carbon Monoxide Detection - How to Prevent Accidental Poisoning
When properly vented, carbon monoxide is not a threat to your family's safety. However, faulty venting of furnaces and appliances, as well as open flame cooking, creates a situation where carbon monoxide fumes start building up in your home. Carbon monoxide detection devices are a simple and inexpensive way to catch this problem before it becomes life-threatening.
Detectors can be installed as part of a whole-house security system, or as an add-on device. When part of your security system, they can be wired to communicate an alarm to a control unit. This allows you to be notified about dangerous levels of carbon monoxide even when you aren't home. Of course, if you are at home, the audible alarm produced by a detector gives you early warning so that you can escape in time.
It is very important to place and install carbon monoxide detection devices properly, if you want to get the most benefit out of them. Professional security system installers can place your detectors where they belong and show you how to maintain them for years of reliable service. Carbon monoxide detection devices require a constant source of power, so be sure to get a battery backup for each one.
