Indoor Air Quality
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Standard household appliances using combustion of fossil fuels like fireplaces, natural gas furnaces and water heaters, gas stoves and ovens, grills—and even the car in your garage—are all potential sources of carbon monoxide, a potentially dangerous toxic gas.
While nearly all gas-burning appliances and systems in your home are designed to safely address any carbon monoxide generation, there are serious implications if any of these systems malfunction. It's especially dangerous because you can't see, smell, or taste carbon monoxide.
Protect your home—and your family
In addition to having your HVAC system and household appliances regularly maintained by professionals, you can protect your family by having carbon monoxide detectors installed in your home. A carbon monoxide detector senses when an unsafe level of the gas is in the air, and sounds an alarm. Just like smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors should be:
- placed in different rooms around the house;
- hard-wired into your home's electrical wiring;
- and tested monthly.
Want to ensure your detectors are placed and installed correctly? Then it's time to talk to your local ARS®/Rescue Rooter® air quality specialist. We install quality solutions like the Nest Protect® CO detector and smoke alarm, which alerts you to the nature of a problem and its exact location in your home—and even tests itself regularly over the course of its 10-year lifespan.
