Carbon Monoxide Alarms in Aspen & Vail, Colorado

Carbon monoxide is an invisible gas that has no odor, making it virtually impossible to detect but lethal if inhaled in large does. Nicknamed the "silent killer," carbon monoxide can kill you slowly without you knowing it, particularly when you are sleeping. That is why installing a carbon monoxide alarm in your home is a good idea.

How a Carbon Monoxide Alarm Works

Because carbon monoxide is odorless, tasteless, and invisible, it is difficult to know if there is a dangerous amount of it in your home until it is too late. You will only realize that you have been inhaling carbon monoxide after symptoms surface. Even then, the early symptoms mimic what you might have with a cold or flu: dizziness, fatigue, and headaches. That still is not enough to alert you to the presence of high carbon monoxide levels.

A carbon monoxide alarm from Skyline Mechanical, on the other hand, will inform you when dangerous levels of carbon monoxide are detected in your home. While small amounts of this gas are harmless, large quantities can be fatal. When one of our alarms detects a dangerously large quantity of carbon monoxide in the air, it makes a loud noise that is your signal to vacate the premises for your safety.

Where to Install Carbon Monoxide Alarms

Carbon monoxide alarms should be installed throughout your home, particularly in bedrooms. To ensure that CO levels are closely monitored, hallways, foyers, patios, and basements should receive alarms along living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, and bedrooms. If a hallway is longer than 40 feet, an alarm should be installed at both ends.

Carbon monoxide poisoning can be triggered by several common household items, including your furnace, heater, chimney, stove, and other gas-powered appliances. Your car's exhaust pipe also emits CO gas, which can be a problem if you have an attached garage.
