The Truth About Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon monoxide in the home generally comes from appliances that burn fuel, such as natural gas, propane, wood, and coal. If your home isn’t adequately ventilated to get rid of the gas that comes out of these appliances, you can become sick and even die.
The truth is that a simple and inexpensive carbon monoxide installation can save your life. Installing these detectors is easy and relatively inexpensive. Install carbon monoxide detectors if:

  • You use wood, coal, or propane to heat or cook with
  • You feel lightheaded, have headaches, or become nauseated when in the home
  • Your home isn’t well-ventilated

If you’re unsure about whether you need to install carbon monoxide detectors, call JDV Electric to discuss your options and risk factor.

How Many Carbon Monoxide Detectors Do You Need?

As with smoke detectors, experts recommend that you install at least one on each floor of your home and one in each bedroom. If you begin to feel ill or experience any of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning while you’re at home, open the windows immediately and turn off the fuel-burning appliances. If the symptoms persist or become worse, go to the emergency room and tell them you think you have CO poisoning.

When You Should Update Your Carbon Monoxide Detectors

You may not realize it, but carbon monoxide detectors do expire after a time. Check the back of your detector and it should have an expiration date. Most detectors have a lifespan of 5-7 years, after which time you need to replace them. If you have carbon monoxide detectors, check them now to see if you’re in need of carbon monoxide detector replacement, and then call JDV Electric for help
