Carbon Monoxide Protection

Don’t forget about Carbon Monoxide (CO) which can be deadly. Make sure you are educated about the hazards and preventive measures you can take. You should have CO detectors in your home. They should be installed in a central location outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home. Many people have them in their basement because they think that is where most CO leaks would occur. Unfortunately, chances are you will not hear that detector beeping while you are asleep two stories away so move that detector upstairs today! CO is lighter than air and will travel to your sleeping level and trip that device even if the source is in the basement.
