Carbon Monoxide Information

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, tasteless, odorless gas, that in high enough concentrations, can be fatal. Signs of carbon monoxide exposure may be dizziness, headache, nausea, drowsiness, weakness, convulsions, and unconsciousness. A carbon monoxide detector can alert household residents to a threat, even before symptoms appear.

Carbon Monoxide detectors should be centrally located outside of each separate sleeping area in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms, and each detector should be located on the wall, ceiling or other location as specified in the installation instructions that accompany the unit.

Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines regarding installation, maintenance and operation of detectors, and replace them accordingly.
