Carbon monoxide detectors: What are they and why you really need?
A carbon monoxide detector is a device that is used to detect the presence of carbon monoxide in the atmosphere in order to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. The device is designed to measure levels of carbon monoxide in an environment over time, and to sound an alarm if the level reaches a critical level.
Carbon monoxide detectors come in two main varieties: plug-in, or battery-operated. Battery-operated units are much simpler to install and will not fail in a power outage. AC-operated with battery backups can be placed in any AC outlet.
Carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless so you don't notice it accumulating. It makes you feel drowsy, then it puts you to sleep, and finally it kills you. CO poisoning is more common in the winter months when windows are closed and heaters, fireplaces, and furnaces are in use. When your carbon monoxide detector is beeping, acting quickly is key. At that point, you can turn off any gas burning appliances or equipment, open all the windows, evacuate your home.
