Carbon Monoxide Alarms

What they can and cannot do

  • CAN - sense unacceptable levels of CO in the air

  • CAN - provide early warning, before a healthy adult might show symptoms

  • CAN - act as round-the-clock monitor of CO

  • CAN - only sense CO that reaches it - Where you hang a detector is important

  • CAN - breakdown like any other electronic device

  • CANNOT - work without electrical power (batteries, AC)

  • CANNOT - sense smoke, natural gas, propane, etc. (It is not a smoke detector!)

Where to put (or not put) your detector
