About Carbon Monoxide
Carbon monoxide, also referred to as CO, is an odorless, colorless gas that is found in many households each year. Carbon monoxide is the leading cause of poisoning deaths in America. CO is most commonly produced by burning carbon based materials using fuel or natural gas. Inhalation of carbon monoxide can causes serious injuries including brain damage and death. As of February 20, 2010, many states adopted Amanda’s Law, which requires the installation and maintenance of Carbon Monoxide Detectors in all households and dwellings with a fuel burning appliance or an attached garage present. Check with your local state legislation to make sure you are in compliance with state law.
It is recommended that all households and community buildings have at least one Kidde carbon monoxide alarmdetector on each level of your home and outside sleeping areas. A Kidde carbon monoxide alarm works similar to your standard smoke alarm, emitting a sound warning if the sensor detects harmful levels of carbon monoxide.
Similar to Kidde smoke alarms, Kidde carbon monoxide alarms can be interconnected in a system to maximize efficiency of your indoor safety system, and can be connected with other units including bells, whistles, relays, and additional smoke or carbon monoxide alarms
