Battery powered carbon monoxide alarms can be placed exactly where needed and should be near any sources of combustion like a fire place, hot water heater, furance, gas appliances as well as in living and sleeping areas.
Since battery powered CO alarms don't need to be plugged in, they can be easily installed in homes, cottages, RVs, campers, trailers, mobile homes or even used for portable protection.
These carbon monoxide alarms run on alkaline batteries or in some cases have pre-installed lithium batteries that last up to 10 years so they require far less maintainance.
Carbon Monoxide is odourless and tasteless making it a silent killer. Most provinces require CO alarms to be installed in all living and sleeping areas, but even where it's not mandated by law, these CO detectors are inexpensive protection for your family.
