Protect your home and family with a natural gas alarm
More and more homes are now furnished with natural gas appliances: gas water heaters, gas stoves, gas fireplaces, gas heating. A gas leak in your home can be fatal to you and your family. If your home uses natural gas, Hanwei Electronics strongly recommends installing a natural gas alarm connected to your alarm system.
Natural gas is one of the most common types of leaks you are likely to experience in your home. Mercaptan is meant to provide an opportunity for easy detection of high levels of natural gas when a leak occurs. Because of the strong smell of Mercaptan(“rotten egg”), the gas leak becomes very noticeable in the instance of a large gas leak, but it can still go undetected if there is a low grade gas leak.
To accurately monitor the possible natural gas leakage, Hanwei Electronics offers a variety of domestic gas alarms, including the GT natural gas leak alarm, the GE Plug In propane gas alarm, and the GK domestic natural gas alarm.
Natural Gas and Carbon Monoxide
Your natural gas system can produce carbon monoxide (CO) if it is not working properly, or if it is inadequately vented. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning is different than Natural gas Poisoning, but just as toxic. Symptoms include headaches, dizziness, nausea, unclear thinking, shortness of breath.
You can protect your family from Carbon Monoxide poisoning by following all of the natural gas safety tips and installing a Carbon Monoxide Alarm.
