Carbon Monoxide Detector Installation
Carbon monoxide is called the “silent killer” because it’s an odorless, colorless, and tasteless gas that causes about 400 deaths and 20,000 emergency room visits per year in the U.S. Anything that burns fuel such as vehicles, the furnace, gas ranges, stoves, and fireplaces create carbon monoxide. If the fumes are not properly vented, they can lead to sudden illness and even death.
Just like smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors should be installed throughout the home to keep your family and pets safe. For more information about carbon monoxide detectors or to have them installed in your home, contact California Smart Home Pro.
Why Should You Install CO Detectors?
Carbon monoxide detectors alert you to the presence of carbon monoxide in your home to keep you and your family safe. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, everyone is at risk for CO poisoning. However, people with anemia, respiratory issues, chronic heart disease, infants, and the elderly are more susceptible to getting sick.
Some of the common symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include:
- Upset stomach
- Chest pain
Where Should CO Detectors be Installed?
CO detectors should be installed on every level of a home and outside of all sleeping areas. It’s also recommended to install a CO alarm near major gas-burning appliances, such as water heaters and furnaces, although they should not be placed within 5 feet of these appliances. For the most effective use, install carbon monoxide detectors high on the wall, near the ceiling. Always consult the manufacturer’s recommendations for proper placement instructions.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors from California Smart Home Pro
ADT’s carbon monoxide detectors are designed and installed to quickly alert you to the presence of CO in your home so first responders are quickly notified. Some of the features of ADT CO monitoring detectors from California Smart Home Pro include:
An ADT CO detector is equipped with versatile mounting features, allowing you to mount them on the ceiling or wall. There are also wireless options for difficult-to-wire locations.
If a carbon monoxide detector is accidentally removed from its base, a built-in tamper switch communicates back to the control panel to alert you.
Electrochemical sensing technology is capable of detecting even low levels of CO to keep you, your family, and your pets safe.
Smart CO Detectors
Smart carbon monoxide detectors can alert your mobile device to the presence of CO. They can also unlock doors in your home to let first responders inside and turn off the air conditioning system to slow the circulation of the gas.
The test/hush button allows you to easily perform testing on the carbon monoxide alarm.
