Why Install A Carbon Monoxide Detector?

Why Install A Carbon Monoxide Detector?

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that’s known for stealing the lives of hundreds of people each year due to the difficulty involved in detecting toxic levels in the house. CO is produced in your home as a by-product of combustion from gas burning appliances such as grills, fireplaces, furnaces, stoves, and dryers.

Typically, CO is properly vented to the outside of your home. When your appliances are not burning efficiently, they produce an excess of CO that can accumulate in your home, creating the potential for health issues and if not corrected, eventually resulting in death.

The air quality in your house may be killing you. In our world, if you are not testing, you are just guessing. Why gamble with the health and safety of your family?

What is the Air Advice M5200?

The Air Advice M5200 is an indoor air quality (IAQ) device that’s used to measure six important indoor air quality details, such as dust, chemical pollutants, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, temperature as well as humidity. IAQ data is collected on an on-going basis at one-minute intervals and sent to the Air Advice for Homes Servers through it’s built-in cellular modem. When the Air Advice is disconnected, it also has the ability to store the data from up to 14 days. However, when the air quality is at hazardous and deadly levels, homeowners will be able to obtain an action-oriented report from their Air Advice M5200 that includes aspects measured, causes of concern, what was in the air, product solutions and much more. Call us today to set up an appointment to measure the indoor air quality of your home.

Monitors Indoor Air Quality Levels

There could be dangerous pollutants in your home without you even recognizing it. The primary purpose of a M5200 is to sense the levels of various pollutants in the air inside your home and alert you to toxic levels when detected.

Indicates Poor Air Ventilation

The Air Advice M5200 will quickly identify heightened levels of CO and other indoor pollutants in your home, that indicate that your ventilation system is not working properly. Since CO comes from your furnace, with poor ventilation, the CO gas produced by your furnace will eventually collect in your home and cause health issues and if left unaddressed, can cause death.

Signals the Possible Presence of Defective Appliances

A persistent number of alarms from your detector is also a possible sign of an outdated or damaged appliances within your home, such as a furnace, stove or water heater that is leaking too much CO gas. The closest detector will set off its alarm as soon as this occurs, allowing you to locate where the CO leak is coming from and allowing you to figure out the best way to fix it.
