Combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors | Alarms
Wired smoke and CO detectors are required in all new homes and renovations to protect against fires, smoke and deadly carbon monoxide gases.
WHERE SHOULD SMOKE AND CO ALARMS BE INSTALLED
Hard wired 120V combination smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are commonly installed in basements near furnaces, in or near bedrooms and living areas.
Smoke rises and carbon monoxide mixes with air so normally smoke and carbon monoxide combination detectors are installed on the ceilling.
Typically, these combination wired alarms are interconnected so when one detector senses smoke or fire, all of the alarms in the house will sound to warn of danger.
WHY SHOULD I INSTALL A COMBINATION SMOKE & CO DETECTOR?
It's a proven fact that smoke detectors save lives. We also know that carbon monoxide is colourless and odourless making it a silent killer that can kill without anyone even noticing. Victims of CO poisoning will generally start to feel tired and simply fall asleep. When it comes to fires, the smoke is deadly as it can knock out occupants, creates a noxious environment and makes it difficult to see to find safety.
Smoke and CO combinatoin detectors protect against both these threats and warn occupants and family of danger as soon as possible to increase everyone's chances of getting out safely.
WHEN SHOULD SMOKE & CO DETECTORS BE REPLACED
Combination detectors typically last 5-7 years so while the one time cost is a bit more expensive, over the course of their service life it's really a very inexpensive way to protect your property and family.
Make sure to test your detectors at least annually and replace detectors that are past their service life of 5-10 years. Don't trust that an old smoke or co alarm will protect you - it's just not worth it.
