Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Systems
Having a Smoke Detection System in your home dramatically increases the chances of surviving a fire!
Battery Smoke Detectors sound off when smoke is detected, at the location the smoke is detected. A hard wired system is designed to sound off every detector connected to the system throughout the home, regardless where the smoke was detected. If a fire starts in the basement at night while you are sleeping, the hard wired system sounds off at every detector location giving you a MUCH better chance of getting you and your loved ones out of harms way.
The same holds true for Carbon Monoxide Detectors (CO Detectors). CO detectors can be integrated into a smoke detection system to give added protection to you and your family! By using combination Smoke/CO units you can get this added peace of mind in a single detection unit.
Carbon Monoxide (CO) – Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless and toxic gas. Because it is impossible to see, taste or smell the toxic fumes, CO can kill you before you are aware it is in your home. At lower levels of exposure, CO causes mild effects that are often mistaken for the flu. These symptoms include headaches, dizziness, disorientation, nausea and fatigue. The effects of CO exposure can vary greatly from person to person depending on age, overall health and the concentration and length of exposure.
