CO Alarms: Why they are essential in your home!

In this post we are going to talk about why it is SO important to have a CO alarm present in your home…yes it sounds boring BUT just have a read and you may be shocked!

A carbon monoxide alarm or CO detector is a device that detects the presence of carbon monoxide (CO) gas in order to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.

Kidde_Compact_Carbon_Monoxide_Alarm_1053437Carbon monoxide can easily go undetected as it’s a colourless, odourless, tasteless and a toxic gas produced as a by-product of combustion. It’s extremely dangerous if you have a leak!

Heres a list of common house-hold items that produce CO. If you have any of these, you could have a leak right now and not even know!

  • Gas Fires
  • Open Fireplaces and woodstoves
  • Fuel fired furnaces (non-electric)
  • Gas dryers
  • Gas stoves
  • Gas water heaters
  • Gas boilers

Heres a crazy fact! 

  • The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that approximately 200 people per year are killed by accidental CO poisoning with an additional 5000 people injured.
