Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that is associated with incomplete combustion

Sources include, but are not limited to:

  • Furnaces
  • Water Heaters
  • Space Heaters
  • Ranges, Ovens
  • Clothes Dryers
  • Lawn Mowers
  • and Vehicles
Carbon Monoxide is a by-product of all appliances designed to burn fuel.

Flu-like symptoms are an early indication of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Safe use, proper installation and maintenance of fuel burning appliances are the best protection against carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon Monoxide alarms can add an additional level of protection. They measure the amount of CO gas that has accumulated and will sound an alarm when higher than normal concentrations of CO are in the air. Units are relatively inexpensive and can act as an early warning and notification for you and your family from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning.

In addition, it is important to have all heating equipment and venting devices checked and serviced every year.
Alarms are to be installed in accordance with Manufacturer's Installation Instructions and can be either battery operated or electric with battery back up.
