  • Replace all smoke detectors when they are 10 years old.

Heat detectors respond when the temperature of the designated area reaches a certain level.  Heat detectors offer low-cost mean for property protection against fire, and non-life safety installations where smoke detectors are inappropriate.

dividerCARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS

Carbon Monoxide is an odorless, tasteless, and highly toxic gas that results from incomplete combustion of fossil fuels.  It is often referred to as “the silent killer” because it is virtually impossible to detect without sensing technology.  The Carbon Monoxide Detector is a device that detects the presence of the carbon monoxide gas (CO) to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.  When dangerous amount of CO are detected, and the detectors alert residents by sounding and flashing a temp 4 signal alarm.

Facts (Common Source of CO)

  • Heating systems
