Just Say No to CO!

Protect your family and employees with carbon monoxide detectors.

Just like a smoke detector can notify you of a fire in your home or place of business, a carbon monoxide detector is a good addition to protect you from the dangers of carbon monoxide gas. This gas is a byproduct of heating systems that burn natural gas or propane and is hazardous if it builds up. It is colourless and odourless and if allowed to accumulate in a home or business due to inadequate ventilation or burning of the fuel can cause carbon monoxide poisoning or result in death.

Where should I install a carbon monoxide detector?

Carbon monoxide detectors should be installed on each level of a home or business and kept at least 5 feet away from any combustion device (furnace, fireplace, appliance). These devices should have their batteries replaced annually, just like a smoke detector. The lifespan of a carbon monoxide detector is 5-7 years and most new detectors will have an expiration date sticker on them.
