Carbon monoxide is the cause of thousands of deaths or close calls every year in Canada, and many elements that are commonly used in households contain this substance and can pose a risk. Installing a carbon monoxide alarm ensures that you’re alerted of a threat before it’s too late.
It’s safest to install a carbon monoxide alarm outside of primary sleeping areas and on each level of your home. Doing so will ensure maximum protection, and will help increase the chances that you and everyone else in your house are alerted of a threat so you can get to safety in time.
