Carbon monoxide is invisible and odorless and can lead to serious, even fatal consequences if you’re exposed to its fumes. Proactively inspecting your CO detector will ensure you’re protected should you find yourself dealing with a leak.

When functioning properly, a carbon monoxide detector will warn you whenever there is an improperly burning gas heater or a blocked chimney.

We typically like to inspect smoke and carbon monoxide detectors twice a year, but we recommend that you perform a couple inspections on your own as well.

Instructions on how to check and test your detector can be found in the manufacturer’s guide. It’s also worth noting that these alarms have a limited lifetime, so you’ll want to make sure you know its expiration date well before the time arrives.

All of our service technicians are equipped with carbon monoxide detectors and would be more than happy to help you install one if you need us!
