Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Carbon monoxide is an odorless and colorless gas that can be released by certain home appliances. It can cause illness and even death. That’s why it’s so important that you install carbon monoxide alarms in your home.
Even low levels of carbon monoxide can be extremely dangerous to anybody with heart and lung disease, the elderly, pregnant woman, babies and children. With carbon monoxide poisoning, the affected person can experience flu-like symptoms, headache, sore throat, rapid heart beat, memory loss, and sensitivity to light, sound, smell, etc. Out of about 12,000 patients in the U.S. each year with flu-like symptoms, about 2,000 of them are actually suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning.
Carbon monoxide can leak from many different sources, including heating systems, fireplaces, stoves, and even water heaters. Our Firestone carbon monoxide alarm installation and testing experts can help you prevent carbon monoxide poisoning by installing a reliable, carbon monoxide alarm in your Colorado home.
At Carbon Valley Heating & Air, our Firestone air conditioning company can install carbon monoxide detectors in your home, and we can test your CO detectors to ensure that they’re fully functional.
Carbon Monoxide Alarm Placement
Carbon monoxide alarms should be placed 5-20 feet from sources of CO, like your furnace, water heater, or fire place. You should also choose locations that free of obstructions, where the alarm will stay clean and protected from any adverse environmental conditions. They should not be placed near windows or doors, since that could hinder their accuracy.
Our Firestone heating contractors will make sure that your carbon monoxide alarms are in areas of your home in which they’ll be able to be as functional and effective as possible.
