The Importance of Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detectors
The importance of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors cannot be understated; proper installation, maintenance, and testing is critical and mandatory for a responsible homeowner and can quite literally mean the difference between life and death. These small devices do a big job in your home because carbon monoxide is often regarded as a silent and odorless killer.
Some of the warning signs to look out for includes:
- Strange odors
In many cases you’re legally obligated to have these devices installed and maintained in your home. Additionally, if you’ve just bought a new home or are renting, you should always have your devices checked by an expert.
How Often Should Testing Be Performed?
Carbon monoxide and smoke alarms should be tested monthly. Battery life varies depending on the device itself. Some CO/smoke combination alarms come equipped with lithium batteries reported to last for 10 years. However, regardless, monthly testing is mandatory.
If an alarm appears to be operating improperly, it is recommended that a contractor be retained as soon as possible to inspect the alarm and perform the necessary repairs.
