CO Detectors & Alarms
Carbon monoxide (CO) has been termed a silent killer because it is a colorless, odorless gas. It is produced as a byproduct of burning fuel in automobiles, fireplaces, stoves, furnaces and other machines and appliances. If unchecked or unregulated, CO can build up to hazardous indoor levels that can cause illness and even death among humans and animals. Symptoms of CO poisoning include:
Symptoms are often dismissed as flu symptoms. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates around 400 people are killed each year from CO poisoning.
