Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless and tasteless toxic gas, which prevents your body from properly transporting oxygen. It is called the “silent killer”. The poisoning can happen quickly if inhaled in high concentrations of the gas levels can build up slowly over time, causing headaches, drowsiness, dizziness and even brain damage and death, especially in people with respiratory problems, children, and elderly population.
Carbon detectors help save lives every day. The most important element is for them to be properly placed and installed to serve their purpose.
Even though carbon detectors function similarly to smoke detectors, their placement differs and should be installed by professionals like those of Highlights Chicago. A single-function carbon monoxide alarm is recommended, but we can also help you install a dual smoke-CO detector. Call us today and get advice on the best option for your home!
