At Champion Comfort Experts, we offer professional carbon monoxide detector replacement and installation services in Asheville, NC. Our experts will advise you on the location and the correct number of devices to install to keep your loved ones safe.
Why Do You Need Home Carbon Monoxide Detectors?
Carbon monoxide is a deadly gas that impedes the body’s ability to absorb oxygen. It’s produced when a fuel, such as wood or natural gas, doesn’t burn properly. Improperly installed or maintained appliances are the most common cause of residential carbon monoxide leaks.
Carbon monoxide detectors provide an early CO gas leak alert, giving your family precious time to vacate the property and seek safety outdoors. If there are fuel-powered appliances in your home, such as a non-electric stove, water heater, or furnace, you should have carbon monoxide detectors installed.
Signs You Have a Carbon Monoxide Leak
There are several signs to look out for to detect a carbon monoxide leak.
- The pilot light frequently blows out
- Yellow instead of blue burner flames (except in natural gas fireplaces, which use yellow flames)
- Condensation on windows near your gas appliance
- The smell of unusual gases in the home—even though carbon monoxide has no odor, exhaust fumes that sometimes accompany this gas do have an odor
If you’re late in detecting the leak and notice the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, such as dizziness and chronic fatigue, vacate your home immediately and give us a call on your cell phone.
