Detectors

What is Carbon Monoxide?

Carbon monoxide is a harmful gas created by oxygen and carbon. It is extremely dangerous when encompassed in an enclosed space such as a garage or basement. This gas can lead to a variety of health problems, including death if left unchecked. Efficient Air Heating & Cooling is here to keep you safe by providing services for installing carbon monoxide detectors.
 

Carbon monoxide detectors are an extremely valuable asset to a home that can save lives. Carbon monoxide detectors warn the homeowner early of possible carbon monoxide in the air.

Where in Our Homes Does Carbon Monoxide Come From?

  • Water heaters
  • Wood stoves
  • Fireplaces
  • Generators
  • Dryers

When a carbon monoxide detector goes off, the amount of times it beeps will indicate different warnings. The meanings of the different carbon monoxide detector beeps are as follows:

  • Four beeps with a pause means that carbon monoxide is present, and the premise should be vacated. Four beeps with a pause also means the fire station should be contacted because danger is present.
  • One beep each minute means your detectors batteries have almost died and either need to be replaced or charged.
  • Five beeps a minute indicates it is time to replace your current carbon monoxide detector with a new one.

If the carbon monoxide alarm sounds with four beeps and a pause, immediately exit the building and give the fire station a call. Do not ignore the sounds or simply turn the detector off. It is always better to be safe rather than sorry especially when it comes to health.

There are a variety of ways to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning such as turning on your car outside and not inside the garage. Having proper ventilation and heating in your home is also a great way to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
