Are Your Carbon Monoxide Detectors Ready For Action?

With the temperatures steadily dropping and winter just around the corner, many Fayetteville residents will be turning on furnaces soon. Before you crank on the heat, however, make sure your home is equipped with adequate and functioning carbon monoxide detectors. By investing just a little time and money in reliable carbon monoxide detectors, you can rest assured that you and your family will be safe this heating season.

What should I look for in a carbon monoxide detector?

For the best in quality, you should select a model that has been UL certified. Though a basic detector will get the job done, some homeowners prefer to purchase models that provide a readout of the levels of carbon monoxide within the home. This can be useful for emergency responders, as it will help determine the levels that household occupants were exposed to and predict any future danger within the home. You may also select a carbon monoxide detector that doubles as a smoke detector.

Where should carbon monoxide detectors be located?

Place a carbon monoxide detector on each level of your home and especially in corridors that lead to sleeping units. Carbon Monoxide is a heavy gas, therefore the detector should be placed below bed height where it can detect before anyone is harmed. You should avoid locating them near carbon monoxide-producing appliances such as gas stoves, dryers or furnaces, as that could trigger false alarms.

How often should I test my carbon monoxide detector(s)?

Your detectors won’t do you any good if they aren’t in working order. Test them on a monthly basis in order to ensure functionality. Simply push and hold the test button to make sure the batteries are still good and that the device is operational. Any old batteries should be replaced immediately.
