Carbon Monoxide Detector

The "Invisible Killer"


We recommend that every dwelling that has a household appliance

 or heating system that burns a fossil fuel

 to have a working carbon monoxide alarm installed

 Install CO detectors at your knee height 

Test the detector monthly

 Keep the CO detector clean 

Listen for low-battery alerts  

Best Choice Locksmith Technician are trained on installation of the CO Alarm.

We carry the Carbon Monoxide Alarms with us, just ask about our special price!

Although the popularity of carbon monoxide (CO) alarms has been growing in recent years, 

it cannot be assumed that everyone is familiar with the hazards 

of carbon monoxide poisoning in the home.

Often called the invisible killer, carbon monoxide is an odorless, 

colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane,

oil, and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment

 that burn fuel are potential sources of carbon monoxide.

 Vehicles or generators running in an attached garage can also 

produce dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.

 The dangers of CO exposure depend on a number of variables, 

including the victim's health and activity level. 

Infants, pregnant women, and people with physical conditions 

that limit their body's ability to use oxygen (i.e. emphysema, asthma, heart disease) 

can be more severely affected by lower concentrations of CO than healthy adults would be.

 A person can be poisoned by a small amount of CO over a longer period of time 

or by a large amount of CO over a shorter amount of time.

 In 2010, U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated 80,100 non-fire CO incidents in which carbon monoxide was found, or an average of nine such calls per hour. 

 The number of incidents increased 96 % from 40,900 incidents reported in 2003. 

This increase is most likely due to the increased use of CO detectors,

 which alert people to the presence of CO.
