St. Anthony Electrician
Because a St. Anthony electrical contractor is in the business of helping electricity move safely through a structure, safety is taken a step further by helping in the selection and the wiring of smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. Both are valuable instruments in ensuring the safety of everyone within the home because smoke can overtake a person very quickly, but carbon monoxide can do so without a person even being aware.
Installing Quality Carbon Monoxide Detectors And More!
Carbon monoxide, or CO2, is a silent killer. Unfortunately, every year there are approximately 500 individuals that die from carbon monoxide poisoning. Perhaps they forgot to turn off the gas stove or a gas leak in the home resulted in the release of carbon monoxide. Those homes using gas and older apartment buildings using boiler systems run a risk of carbon monoxide release.
What a carbon monoxide detector will do for you is detect the smallest amount of carbon monoxide in your home. Knowing that this silent killer is in the air will allow you to evacuate your family before placed in a deadly situation. You can then find the source of the carbon monoxide so that it can be rectified and so you can move back into your home without your life being threatened. CO2 detectors installed by a St. Anthony electrical contractor has saved lives throughout the area. They are inexpensive and, just like a smoke alarm, will alert you the moment harm is detected.
With smoke detectors, the saying, “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire” rings true. However, a smoke detector can be so sensitive that it can detect the smoke before the fire ever develops and this can save lives. That is why it is good to have a St. Anthony electrical contractor take responsibility for your smoke detector installation, but not before helping you choose one or more that is ideal for your home.
It is very important to ensure that each smoke detector is strategically placed throughout the home and properly installed because proper installation is the only way they are effective. The usual placement for smoke detectors is in kitchens, around fireplaces, and even in or around bedrooms. It is important that when a smoke alarm goes off it is heard. If you and your family are asleep, you want to be able to hear the smoke alarm sound so that you can wake and get out of the home as soon as possible. Every day, smoke detectors are saving lives, but there are also many homes without them and individuals falling victim to smoke inhalation or fire.
