Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Safeguarding your home and family from a threat that's invisible but deadly is possible by installing carbon monoxide detectors. While there are plenty of battery-operated CO alarms on the market, they don't last long, and they are often unreliable.

Why Carbon Monoxide Detector Installation Is Important

CO poisoning is a real concern. Most cases of CO poisoning occur due to the heating system. However, it can build up in your home from any fuel-burning source or from running your vehicle inside your garage. Since you can't smell, taste, see, or detect it without a CO detector, there's no way to know if your home is building up this poisonous gas.

Once you breathe carbon monoxide, it can be fatal. The gas inhibits your blood's ability to carry oxygen. Symptoms of CO poisoning are:

  • Headaches
  • Severe headaches
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Disorientation
  • Confusion
  • Sleepiness

Need To Convert To A Hard-Wired CO Detector?

Homeowners often convert their battery-operated CO alarms to hard-wired CO alarms in order to comply with local code requirements. Sometimes the code can stipulate that additional equipment should be connected, such as an external strobe light.

As local electricians in Allentown, we understand all the local city safety code requirements in the communities we work in. We'll make sure your CO alarm is installed correctly. Some homeowners realize the benefits of a hard-wired CO alarm whether the code requires them or not. Whether you want to or need to convert, call our electricians for expert installation. You and your family will be better protected from this deadly gas.

Installing Hard-Wired Smoke Detectors & Combo Alarms

A smoke alarm is just as important as a carbon monoxide alarm. Installing a hard-wired smoke detector in key locations of your home is vitally important. Battery-powered smoke alarms are better than nothing, but a hard-wired smoke alarm is best. The unit will come with a long-life lithium battery backup in case the main power goes out.

The number of smoke detectors you need depends on the layout of your home and your own preferences. Generally, a smoke detector should be installed outside each bedroom and on each additional story of the house, including the basement. You can also install smoke detectors in the bedrooms, furnace areas, dining rooms, utility rooms, and hallways. Don't sleep with the bedrooms closed unless you have a smoke detector installed in the room.

Combo alarms can be installed to monitor for smoke and carbon monoxide. Our worry-free Kiddie hard-wired smoke detectors and CO alarms are backed by a 10-year warranty. If your smoke alarm hasn't been replaced in the last 10 years or you have battery-operated smoke detectors and would like to convert, call our Allentown electricians at Lehigh Valley Electric, Inc for a quote.
