Carbon Monoxide is an invisible and odorless gas that can kill you. Common sources of CO are boilers, stoves, generators, and automobiles

Where should they be installed?

How do I maintain my Carbon Monoxide alarms?

·         We recommend that you change your batteries every time you change your clock for daylight savings.

·         We also recommend that you test your CO alarms at least once a month.

·         Replace every 5 years

Note: Combination Smoke/CO alarms are common and are highly recommended
