Living comfortably and conveniently in your home should obviously be a top priority. However, neither is nearly as important as ensuring that you are able to live safely in your home. If you hope to do so, you need some basic equipment in place. Among the most important safety devices are your carbon monoxide detectors in Jacksonville, FL.
As you'll learn a bit more about below, carbon monoxide is a notoriously difficult to detect threat to your safety. When you allow the professional electricians on the AA Service and Repair-North Florida AC team to install and service your carbon monoxide detectors, though, you can rest assured in knowing that they'll serve their purpose successfully. Let us know if you have any questions.
Why Is Carbon Monoxide So Dangerous?
There are certain threats to your safety that you can notice on your own. The fact that you can feel the heat and smell the smoke of a fire, though, does not mean that you don’t need smoke detectors in your home, right? Well, just imagine how much more dangerous a fire would be without those sensory warnings. That’s what you’re dealing with with carbon monoxide.
Carbon monoxide is generated by the incomplete combustion of fossil fuels, which is why it is so important that your appliances burning fossil fuels are properly ventilated. It has no odor, no taste, and no smell. That means that using a carbon monoxide detector is really the only way in which to alert yourself to its presence. Considering the fact that prolonged exposure to this gas can be fatal, it’s clear to see the vital importance of these devices.
Only Professionals Can Install or Replace Carbon Monoxide Detectors
When it comes to something that could potentially save your life, you really don’t want to cut corners. It does not matter how handy you are, or how many internet videos you’ve watched. If you need carbon monoxide detectors installed in your home, you need to hire a professional electrician to do the job. They should be hardwired into your system, so that you are not depending upon batteries to keep you safe.
When you need carbon monoxide detector replacement services, just give us a call. We are happy to replace your old devices with newer, more reliable ones. Generally, you should replace your CO detectors every 5–7 years. Some may even sound an alarm when they’ve reached the end of their projected lifespan. Contact us if you have any doubts about the age or reliability of the carbon monoxide detector(s) in your home.
Do Carbon Monoxide Detectors Require Maintenance?
Should something go wrong with your carbon monoxide detector, repairs are not really the way to go. Carbon monoxide detection is too important to assume that a malfunctioning device is now 100% reliable. That being said, many homeowners wonder if their CO detectors require maintenance of any kind.
The answer is yes. Obviously, this small device won’t require the same sort of maintenance that a whole–house HVAC system does. However, routine inspection and testing of the detector should be completed by a trained professional. A small burst of carbon monoxide may even be introduced into the sensing chamber in order to guarantee the proper reaction of the device. Count on us for great carbon monoxide detector maintenance services.
