Carbon Monoxide Is Still A Danger In The Summer Months
While the winter months are usually associated with a higher number of incidents involving carbon monoxide, the summer months carry a collection of their very own risks linked to the presence of CO. Often referred to as the "silent killer", carbon monoxide is the leading cause of deaths attributed to poison in the United States. It is odorless, invisible and an extremely dangerous gas that can be emitted from everyday appliances to the car parked in the garage. Due to the very lethal consequences associated with the presence of carbon monoxide, it is of the utmost importance that homeowners check the functionality of their installed CO alarms. The Universal Security Store includes a premium selection of USI Carbon Monoxide Alarms that showcase brand exclusive technologies to achieve the ultimate in CO detection.
When to Replace Carbon Monoxide Alarms:
A majority of carbon monoxide detectors features a lifespan of five years. The general rule of thumb that can be applied to the functionality of CO detectors within the household is the actual suspicion that they may need replacement. If there's a sense of doubt within a homeowner's mind as to whether their carbon monoxide alarms have exceeded their expiration then it's probably time to replace them. The actual presence of expiration dates printed on carbon monoxide alarms is a relatively new practice. If a CO alarm doesn't feature an expiration stamp and owners can't recall the purchase date, then it's definitely time for an upgrade. Leaps in forward thinking and the utilization of the latest hardware have afforded the USI brand to release 10 year carbon monoxide detectors. The USI 3-in-1 Hardwired Smoke, Fire & Carbon Monoxide Smart Alarm with 10 Year Tamper-Proof Sealed Battery uses a sealed back-up battery that will never have to be replaced throughout the alarm's 10 year lifespan.
The Presence of Carbon Monoxide in the Summer Months:
An extended collection of appliances designated for summertime use can be directly linked to the presence of carbon monoxide. CO is produced by combustion. Appliances that rely on the burning of fuel such as gasoline, kerosene, wood or charcoal are all capable of spreading large amounts of carbon monoxide into the surrounding area. This would include backyard favorites such as: BBQ grills, camp stoves, torches, lanterns, fire pits and an assortment of other summertime staples. A selection of appliances within the home is also capable of emitting potentially dangerous amounts of carbon monoxide. This would include common home appliances such as gas/oil furnaces, gas refrigerators, gas clothes dryers, gas water heaters, fireplaces and wood burning stoves. The installation of a USI Electric Hardwired 2-in-1 Carbon Monoxide and Natural Gas Smart Alarm with Battery Backup provides an optimal level of protection that's capable of simultaneously detecting the presence of carbon monoxide and natural gasses.
Where to Install CO and Natural Gas Alarms:
It is recommended that USI CO and Natural Gas Alarms be installed in rooms that feature windows or gas appliances. This could range from the kitchen area to the basement. It is also encouraged that USI CO and Natural Gas Detectors be placed in a position that's higher than all doors and windows. Installation should be about 6 inches from the ceiling and within 10 feet from gas emitting appliances. The Universal Security Store includes a versatile series of USI Carbon Monoxide Alarms and USI Combination Alarms that employ various technologies to better recognize potential threats looming within the home.
