Carbon Monoxide Detection
This odorless, colorless, almost undetectable gas is one of the most deadly toxins that can enter your home—and most likely, it’s already there. Carbon Monoxide (CO) is produced through improper combustion when burning fuels, and it’s emitted each time you use common household appliances. From dryers, gas water heaters, and space heaters to grills, wood burning stoves, and fireplaces, CO can be created with each use. Read More...
The cleaner you keep your appliances, the better for the quality of your air, however, if you neglect to maintain them, harmful residues can build up and release large amounts of CO when fuel is burned, putting you and your family in danger. The best way to help protect your home from harmful CO emissions is to install multiple detectors. There are several options and different routes you can take, which is why it’s important to know what you’re looking for, what you need protection against, and the best way to get the protection you need. ADT professionals can even help you sync your detectors with your home security system to create a seamless monitoring system that’s easy to use, while protecting you and your family against CO and other household harm. The more you know, the easier it will be to detect and protect you and your family from this harmful gas.
