Carbon Monoxide (CO) is odorless, tasteless, and invisible. It can cause illness and at high enough levels it can be deadly.
Dangerous levels of Carbon Monoxide can accumulate inside of your home, cabin, or camper if Carbon Monoxide producing appliances or equipment are not working properly, are not properly vented, or are used improperly.
Sources of Carbon Monoxide can include stoves, fireplaces, water heater, furnace, dryer, grill, lawnmower, snow-blower, generator, cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Never operate any of these appliances or equipment without proper and adequate ventilation.
UL listed electric Carbon Monoxide alarms with digital displays and battery back-up are recommended for installation inside of your home, cabin, or camper.
Location requirements: Must have an approved and operational CO alarm installed within 10 feet of each room lawfully used for sleeping purposes and on every level of the home.
Test each alarm at least once a month. Replace when they expire (date on alarm) or show an end of life indicator.
