Toxic Fume Detectors

Peace of mind while vigilant

Smells alert us to danger. But human noses might not notice something is wrong until it's too late. This is why electronic 'noses' are essential to have in every home to monitor the air 24/7 for danger.

Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors provide such protection with their sophisticated sensors that warn us of harmful conditions. But to work effectively they must be installed in appropriate locations to ensure adequate monitoring. Our team of electricians can evaluate your home to help determine where and how many detectors are needed for full coverage.

Be sure your home is properly equipped with these vital devices to secure the health and safety of your family. 

Symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure

Carbon monoxide is especially dangerous due to its lack of smell. If you don't have an electronic detector that senses the toxic gas, your body could become a human detector which indicates something is wrong by displaying the following symptoms: 

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Weakness
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Light-headedness
  • Sleepiness
  • Loss of muscle control
  • Chest tightness
  • Confusion
  • Blurred vision

While carbon monoxide detectors are strongly recommended, only smoke detectors are required. This device can save your entire family's life in a matter of seconds by providing early warning to help prevent fire fatalities.

To ensure the reliability of all components, the National Fire Protection Agency recommends replacing your smoke detectors every five years. It's also critical to have your detectors hardwired with a battery backup in case of an emergency.

Carbon monoxide poisoning can be extremely dangerous to your health. Carbon monoxide poisoning is one of the most common causes of poisoning death in the United States. This leaking gas can kill an entire family in a matter of hours or minutes if it goes undetected.

Carbon monoxide poisoning is one of the most dangerous home hazards because it lacks color, taste, and odor. However, it is completely preventable with a detector. Installing credible carbon monoxide detectors can literally mean the difference between life and death.

Carbon monoxide can be produced by a variety of household systems, including

  • Gas or wood fireplace
  • Space heaters
  • Car exhaust
  • Charcoal grills
  • Clogged chimneys or flues

Carbon monoxide detectors should be properly installed on each floor of your home and outside each bedroom. It's also critical to have a service professional like Home Mechanics on hand to repair any smoke or carbon monoxide issues as soon as possible.
