Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon monoxide poisoning is a serious threat to your health. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas can kill an entire family in minutes if undetected. However, carbon monoxide poisoning is 100% avoidable with a professionally installed carbon monoxide detector.

Your home’s appliances can release carbon monoxide, including:

  • Gas range
  • Stove
  • Gas clothes dryer
  • Water heater
  • Furnace
  • Gas or wood fireplace
  • Space heaters
  • Car exhaust
  • Charcoal grills
  • Clogged chimneys or flues

Install carbon monoxide detectors on every home floor — and always let a professional handle the job.

Smoke Alarm & CO Detector Safety Tips

While Lon Lockwood can handle everything necessary for the proper installation of smoke and CO alarms in your home, these tips can be helpful during the installation process and help you properly maintain these alarms over time:

  • Make sure every level of your home has an operational smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector.
  • Avoid installing smoke alarms and CO detectors in areas that regularly generate heat and steam, like above ovens or dryers.
  • Mount these alarms on ceilings, away from corners where air pockets can make these alarms less effective at detecting smoke and carbon monoxide.
  • Test your home’s smoke alarms and CO detectors at least once a month.
  • Replace the batteries in all of these alarms at least once or twice a year.

With Lon Lockwood Electric handling your CO alarm and smoke detector installation, you can be confident you’re working with expert electricians who will use the utmost care and precision to ensure these critical safety features are properly installed and will work optimally for years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions about smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors include:

How many smoke alarms do I need in my home?

The National Fire Protection Association recommends installing smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. And remember: Large homes may need extra smoke alarms.

How often should I test my smoke alarm?

The National Fire Protection Association says to test your smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.

How often should I replace my smoke alarm?

The National Fire Protection Association recommends you replace all smoke alarms in your home every 10 years.

What's the difference between smoke alarms and smoke detectors?

A smoke alarm goes off when it detects smoke on its own. A smoke detector sends a signal to a building’s fire alarm to make it sound an alert. Smoke alarms are typically found in single-family homes and individual apartments, while smoke detectors are found in apartment complexes and other buildings.

What are the three types of smoke detectors?

The three types of smoke detectors are ionization, photoelectric, and combination. Ionization smoke detectors detect fast, flaming fires, photoelectric smoke alarms detect slow, smoldering fires, and dual-sensor smoke alarms detect flaming and smoldering fires.

[accordion-item title= "Which is better, hardwired or battery smoke detectors?"]

Hardwired and battery smoke detectors have their pros and cons. Battery-operated smoke detectors are more common in homes, are cheaper to purchase, and are easier to install.

Hardwired smoke detectors need a professional for installation and use your home’s electricity for power, so if your power goes out, it won’t work in an emergency.

Where should a carbon monoxide detector be placed?

A carbon monoxide detector should be placed on each house floor and outside the bedroom doors for the ability to hear it if it goes off when you’re sleeping.

They should be placed 5–20 feet from carbon monoxide sources and near your attached garage. Also, confirm with your local laws to ensure you abide by local regulations.
