A carbon monoxide alarm, or CO alarm, is much more than just a device that provides peace of mind.

Carbon monoxide is the cause of thousands of deaths or close calls every year in Canada, and many elements that are commonly used in households contain this substance and can pose a risk. Installing a carbon monoxide alarm ensures that you’re alerted of a threat before it’s too late.

Where is Carbon Monoxide Found?

Although it can pose a more dangerous risk, carbon monoxide is like poor indoor air quality, you can’t see it, but if it’s there, it’s a problem. Carbon monoxide is present in several elements that you may use in your home every day. These include:

  • Propane
  • Natural Gas
  • Gasoline
  • Wood
  • Heating Oil

It is also present in several other substances that are commonly found in homes. A carbon monoxide alarm is the only way to know for sure when there is a threat from any of these, and is the best way to ensure you’re kept safe day and night.
