Carbon Monoxide alarms are not smoke detectors!
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas. It is the biproduct of incomplete combustion and it may be found in smoke. CO is in the air that we breath, this means that our bodies can handle low levels of exposure. At higher levels this gas is deadly to humans. It is known as the ‚Äúsilent killer‚ÄĚ because people cannot tell when they are around it.
The Carbon Monoxide Detector is a safety device that can alert homeowners of a CO leak and help them escape a potentially life-threatening situation, like CO poisoning.
