Safety First! Carbon Monoxide Smoke Alarms Fire Alarms

When it comes to your family’s safety, you wouldn’t cut any corners, right?  But does your home have a Carbon Monoxide detector installed?  Most homes built a decade ago did not require the installation of Carbon Monoxide detectors, and sadly, tragedy has been the result.

Carbon monoxide (CO), is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas which is slightly lighter than air, and is highly toxic to humans and animals,

Carbon monoxide is produced as a by product in the exhaust from appliances such as an oven/stove, heating system/furnace, auto, lawn mower, or other fuel powered landscaping tools in an enclosed space.

The most common symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning may resemble other types of poisonings and infections, making it very difficult to recognize.  Carbon Monoxide poisoning symptoms may include headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, fatigue and a feeling of weakness. Infants may respond to Carbon Monoxide by acting irritable displaying a sudden loss of appetite.

With such common symptoms, it will be difficult to determine if you have a Carbon Monoxide problem before it is too late.  Installation of a Carbon Monoxide detector is simple, inexpensive, and unquestionably the single most important upgrade to your home that you can provide for your family’s safety.

If your home presently does not have a Carbon Monoxide detection device installed, there is no justifiable reason to hesitate.

Also regarding personal safety; how well is your home wired for ‘up-to-date’ smoke/fire alarms?  Many homes have battery powered smoke/fire detectors that can provide you with a certain level of assurance, as long as the battery is fresh.  This is why it is strongly recommended to change the batteries in your smoke/fire detectors at least twice a year.  Better yet, Handyman Headquarters will provide you with an Electrical Contractor who can install ‘hard-wired’ smoke/fire detectors that will always be ready for service.
