Why CO alarms is essential for your home
If you have a fuel-burning appliance in your home, such as a stove or a fireplace, it is important to install a CO alarm in your home! Carbon monoxide, also known as the silent killer, is an odorless and colorless gas produced by stoves, burning charcoal and wood, as well as gas ranges and heating systems.
Since you can’t see or smell carbon monoxide, CO alarms are used to monitor a buildup of carbon monoxide gas in homes and sound an audible alarm warning if the level gets too high.
There are two basic designs of Hanwei Electronics carbon monoxide detectors, based on the power source.
Battery-powered: Venus battery operated CO alarm, easy to install. The biggest advantage is that these detectors continue to operate during power outages. However, you must remember to change the battery at least once a year.
Hard-wired: The GT AC operated CO alarm uses high quality gas sensing components and advanced electric technology; If abnormal levels of carbon monoxide are detected, the alarm will sound.
Carbon monoxide poisoning tends to happen more in winter. Because of this, be sure that vents from the stove, fireplace have no debris or snow blocking the way of the fumes exiting the house.
