Carbon Monoxide Alarms: Don‘t Take Your Family’s Safety Lightly

Did you know that the sensor life expectancy of a CO Alarm is only 7 years? For a Fire Alarm the sensor is only good for 10 years. All of which means, many of your homes may have CO and Fire alarms that you think are protecting your families and homes, when that might not be the case.

The leading cause of accidental poisoning in North America is CO, due to its odorless, tasteless and invisible properties. In the US each year there is around 15,000 emergency department visits and over 500 deaths due to CO poisoning. For the US in 2009, there were 1,348,500 home fires, causing 2,695 deaths, 14,740 injuries, which resulted in $10,800,000,000 in damages. That is a lot of pain and suffering!
