Carbon Monoxide Detectors + Smoke Detectors
It’s common knowledge that every home needs a smoke detector for safety purposes. However, many people neglect the necessity of a carbon monoxide detector for their Atlanta area home. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless (unlike smoke), tasteless and highly toxic gas produced as a by-product of combustion. In layman’s terms, it’s a dangerous gas that is undetectable by our human senses.
Your home has the possibility of producing dangerous levels of carbon monoxide (without anyone knowing) particularly if you have any type of fuel burning appliance. Fuel burning appliances include your vehicle, gas stove, gas water heaters, fuel fired furnaces and more.
If you have any of these fuel burning devices in your home and even if your house is powered by full electric, our electricians will ALWAYS recommend the installation of a carbon monoxide detector in your Atlanta home. This isn’t just because we genuinely care about your safety but also because it is required by our Code published by the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association). Everything that is mandated by the NFPA code is there for a reason, so we do not take it lightly!
Luckily, our vendors sell dual carbon monoxide/smoke detectors so you only need to install one device. That’s where we come in. We can install & even supply these devices for you. Our Atlanta electricians install carbon monoxide/smoke detectors that have a 10 year battery life so you won’t have to worry about them for another decade. We make sure power is getting to them and place them in the house where they would be the most beneficial for your safety.
