Choosing the Right Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

7/1/2021 (Permalink)

How do You know which Smoke Detector and Carbon Monoxide (“CO”) Detector/Alarm to choose for your home or office?  You should choose an alarm that is listed with a testing laboratory, meaning that it has met certain standards for protection. Whether you select a unit that requires a yearly changing of batteries, or a 10-year unit that you’ll change out at the end of the 10 years, either will provide protection.

CO alarms also have a battery backup.  Choose one that is listed with a testing laboratory. For the best protection, use combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms that are interconnected throughout the home. These can be installed by a qualified electrician, so that when one sounds, they all sound. This ensures you can hear the alarm no matter where in your home the alarm originates.
