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.

Devin and Gary and Drew were amazing. My new system is lightyears ahead of what was replaced. They also provided portable a/c units until the installation was complete

We were very happy with the service. The technician was very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. On the strength of his consultation and advice we signed up for annual maintenance. We are looking forward to the regular service and support in the future.

We recently decided to replace our 25-year-old HVAC system and our "regular water heater" with ultra high-efficiency units. Hillary did a great job leading us through options and also made sure we got all of the appropriate rebates. Most importantly, Devin and Gage did an amazing job of installing the new heat pumps and furnaces despite the fact that one was located in a very hot attic and the outside temperatures were in the upper 90s each day. Cameron also did a great job helping out for one day while Devin was out with a sinus infection (caused by the attic install). Nonetheless, the work was done in a timely manner, all units are now installed and working. The new high-efficiency units are amazingly quiet and overall, the house temperature is noticeably more consistent from room to room and floor to floor. So far, we're very happy we took the plunge. We've used Mountain Air for repairs in the past, and now we're even more impressed with the expertise and professionalism of their team. Thanks, Mountain Air!

Had two AC units installed, Robert and Max couldn’t have been harder working, more knowledgeable or more professional. We’d recommend them to anyone!
