Carbon monoxide Detector, Alarm Systems
Home Carbon Monoxide Detectors - A Life-Saving Device  you need a Carbon Monoxide Detector in your home?  The answer is a definite YES!  Carbon Monoxide is a silent killer. Carbon monoxide is the number one cause of poisoning deaths in Canada.  Without the sound of the detector’s alarm going off, your family will never know that this gas has taken over your home.  Entire families are killed this way every year.  Do not let your family be one of them!   

Carbon Monoxide is a gas that is odourless and colourless.  This lethal gas can build up in your home without you ever knowing it.  Exposure to low concentrations of carbon monoxide over several hours can be as dangerous as exposure to a high level for a few minutes.  Your detector should be able to detect both conditions.

The symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure are as follows: headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, sleepiness, confusion, blurred vision, chest tightness, shortness of breath, loss of muscle control and finally loss of consciousness.  Carbon monoxide poisoning has sometimes been confused with flu-like symptoms.  Make sure that all family members are aware of these symptoms in your home. Your family should be reminded of these symptoms when they are sleeping away from home.

Some common sources of carbon monoxide are; fireplaces, oil and gas furnaces, motor vehicles, space heater, generators, stoves, gas water heaters and dryers with clogged ductwork.  Be sure to have your heating system, water heater and all oil or coal burning appliances serviced by a qualified technician every year.  Never use generators, charcoal grills, camp stoves or any other gasoline or charcoal burning device inside your home.  Make sure that you do not run a truck or car inside a garage attached to your home.

It would be wise to not only install one carbon monoxide detector in your home but to install one in the hallway near every separate sleeping area of the home. Make sure that they are fully exposed and not covered by any furniture. In general, carbon monoxide detectors should be placed near the ceiling for the most effective use.

There are carbon monoxide detectors with a special light feature if someone in your family is hard of hearing. During an alarm, a light flashes as the alarm sounds. There are also talking combination alarms available that vocally indicate whether the threat is from carbon monoxide gas or smoke. Also available are detectors that may be wired-in to the electrical system or plugged into the electrical sockets of your home.

Remember, you can’t hide from this lethal gas. Put the proper precautions in place before carbon monoxide finds you. Make sure your family knows the symptoms. Have all appliances in your home serviced by qualified technicians and last but not least make sure that you have a Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) certified Carbon Monoxide Detector properly installed in your home.
