Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Carbon monoxide poisoning is a leading cause of death and can kill within minutes. It can also leave you with permanent neurological impairment. Carbon monoxide, nicknamed the ?silent killer?, is produced by fuel burning appliances, fireplaces, furnaces, space heaters, and even water heaters.
While these appliances function normally a majority of the time, improper installation or operation, inappropriate ventilation, or a defective appliance can cause lethal concentrations of carbon monoxide to enter and be trapped inside your home.
Titus Electrical Services is a Longmont electrician who installs carbon monoxide detectors . The alarms are installed directly into your electrical system.
The hard-wired installation of CO alarms in key areas of your home or business are effective to alert you of carbon monoxide problems. The alarms work continuously without interruption to detect potentially deadly conditions. If the main electrical service is ever interrupted due to a power outage, the alarms have a battery backup to keep them functioning at all times.

Low-Level Carbon Monoxide Detectors
It is especially important to install low-level carbon monoxide detectors in your home. Most don't alarm until levels of CO have already reached a highly hazardous level. Typically, store-bought detectors, while less expensive, only provide life-or-death protection for normally healthy adults. However, they do little to nothing for children, pets, the ill, or the elderly.
The correct type of carbon monoxide detector is one that will detect low levels of CO. At Titus Electrical Services, our Longmont electricians install professional grade, low-level carbon monoxide alarms that are designed to provide protection for everyone.
CO is lighter than air and can't be smelled or seen. Monitors should be mounted in specific areas of your home at specific heights for proper detection. Our professional electrician will evaluate the best locations for your home as every one is different.
