Carbon monoxide detector

Install a carbon monoxide detector to warn you of an invisible and silent killer.

You’re at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning!

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas, which at high levels causes sudden illness and death. CO is released into the air when anything is burning, whether it’s an engine, stove, furnace, fireplace, or any other kind of heater using gasoline, natural gas, wood, oil, propane, or charcoal. Exposure to CO is extremely dangerous to the people and animals occupying in or near the space, especially due to the fact that it’s undetectable by taste, smell, or sight. You won’t even know it’s poisoning you until it’s potentially too late to save yourself or others in the home.
