Protect your home, business, and community with carbon monoxide detectors and alarms. 

Carbon Monoxide Detectors. Properly working carbon monoxide detectors can provide an early warning before the deadly gas builds up to a dangerous level. Each home should have at least one carbon monoxide detector in the area outside individual bedrooms. 
NOTE: We believe that carbon monoxide detectors are as important to home safety as a smoke detector.

Sources of Carbon Monoxide: Incomplete oxidation during combustion in gas ranges and unvented gas or kerosene heaters may cause high concentrations of Carbon monoxide in indoor air. Worn or poorly adjusted and maintained combustion devices (e.g., boilers, furnaces) can be significant sources, or if the flue is improperly sized, blocked, disconnected, or is leaking. Auto, truck, or bus exhaust from attached garages, nearby roads, or parking areas can also be a source. Common household appliances such as gas clothes dryers, water heaters, ovens and ranges produce carbon monoxide. A charcoal grill operating in an enclosed area or a fire burning in a fireplace also produce carbon monoxide.

Health Effects of Carbon Monoxide Exposure: Acute effects are due to the formation of carboxyhemoglobin in the blood, which inhibits oxygen intake. At low concentrations, carbon monoxide can cause fatigue in healthy people and chest pain in people with heart disease and at higher concentrations, impaired vision and coordination; headaches; dizziness; confusion; nausea. Carbon monoxide poisoning causes flu-like symptoms that clear up after leaving home. Very high concentrations of CO exposure can be fatal.

NOTE: Carbon Monoxide Detectors are NOT A REPLACEMENT for proper use and maintenance of your fuel-burning appliances.
