Does Your Home Have Working Carbon Monoxide Detectors?

Does Your Home Have Working Carbon Monoxide Detectors?

When the weather turns chilly and you start using the gas furnace, carbon monoxide (CO) becomes a threat to your health and well-being. You can lower your risk of exposure by scheduling a maintenance tune up on your furnace so that a certified HVAC technician can make sure your heating system is operating safely. Additionally, you also need to make certain that the carbon monoxide detectors in your home are working properly.

Why Having Reliable Carbon Monoxide Detectors Matters

Carbon monoxide is a lethal gas that’s created as a byproduct of incomplete combustion in fossil fuel-burning equipment like your gas furnace. Breathing in small amounts of CO can cause flu-like symptoms, while exposure to large amounts can quickly cause unconsciousness and death. Because the gas is invisible with no taste or odor, you won’t even know that you’re in danger unless you have working carbon monoxide detectors that sound an alarm.

Advice for Maintaining Your CO Detectors

It’s wise to read up on the manufacturer’s use and care guidelines for your specific device in your owner’s manual. Here are some additional tips on how to ensure you have fully-functional detectors in your home at all times:
