Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Do you have a carbon monoxide (CO) detector installed in your home? If so, have you checked the batteries lately? Having a working carbon monoxide detector in your home is so important when it comes to your safety and the safety of your family members. The detectors are designed to sound an alarm if they sense a dangerous amount of CO in the air. Carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless. Unlike smoke, it does not give any warning when it becomes dangerous.

If you have a gas burning furnace or heating system, you need to install a carbon monoxide detector. Contact Mountain Air today, we can help!

Types of Carbon Monoxide Detectors

There are three different types of CO detectors on the market.

  • Plug in
  • Battery operated
  • Hardwired

The simplest and cheapest CO detector is a battery operated one. Most consumers would be surprised to know that carbon monoxide detectors do not have an infinite lifespan. The sensors wear out every five to seven years and usually warn you by repeatedly sounding an alarm when they need to be replaced.

Remember to test your carbon monoxide detector once a month to make sure it is working properly.

Installation of Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon monoxide mixes with warm air, which rises, so we install CO detectors on ceilings. If you are only installing one CO detector, we suggest placing it near the sleeping area. This way you can hear the alarm if it sounds during the night. However, we recommend installing at least one detector on each floor and in every bedroom of your home. Carbon monoxide is not something to take lightly and the better prepared you are, the safer your home will be.

Carbon Monoxide and Furnace Maintenance

With every gas furnace installation we perform, we install at least two carbon monoxide detectors. We would not recommend installing a gas furnace without these safety devices. We want to make sure our clients are safe at all times. It is also important to have your furnace maintained regularly to make sure that your heating system is not leaking carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless; these safety devices could save your life.

Hillary was our sales associate and set us up with a system perfect for our tri level home to fit all our needs and concerns last Friday. She quickly got us scheduled for the following Monday for us to get a new system since ours has been dying for the last two years. Today Scott and Anmond came out and installed a whole new furnace and AC unit that we desperately needed with winter coming. They were professional, polite and great with answering all of our questions. Scott took the time to show us how our new thermostat worked and and advised us to download the app. Overall as usual I’m beyond satisfied with Mountain Air and would definitely recommend them!

We had multiple HVAC companies who have not seen before the disaster situation our furnace and ducts were in. They gave us the best quote from competitors. Staff was professional, friendly and took the job on with a smile. Would recommend to family and friends, will use again in the future.

Great company! Drew was very helpful explaining our options and getting us set up a with a good system without pressuring us.We had our new heating and AC systems installed today and huge shout out to Cody & Scott! They did an excellent job. Cody was very friendly and down to earth and kept me in the loop every step of the way. Scott too - who spent a lot of time out in the cold setting up the AC and took care of some nasty spiders out there.They answered questions about the system and gave us a nice run through before they left. You could tell they took pride in their work, taking extra care to make sure everything was in good shape and done correctly. We are SO glad we chose Mountain Air instead of some of the competitors we looked at.
