Carbon Monoxide Detector Installation & Repair in Charlotte, NC
There’s no substitute for a well-installed and functioning carbon monoxide detector. As part of your home or office’s standard safety measures, it’s vital for your health and safety to have carbon monoxide detectors correctly installed and repaired regularly.
Turn to professional electricians for wiring and installation of carbon monoxide detectors for the best long-term performance and for regular maintenance.
Why Every Building Needs Carbon Monoxide Detection
Unlike propane and many other harmful substances, people cannot smell or detect high carbon monoxide levels in the air. Certain fuels produce CO gas (carbon monoxide) whenever they burn, but the gas is supposed to be ventilated properly. When something goes wrong, the poisonous chemical puts people and pets in lethal danger.
CO poisoning typically starts with faulty ventilation. Human error and malfunctioning appliances can also be to blame. In any of these cases, there’s no way to realize if you’re being exposed to CO unless your home has detectors installed and working!
- Furnaces, chimneys, and other heating appliances - Anything that burns fuel needs a hot enough flame and proper ventilation. If a pilot light burns cool or the chimney flue is accidentally closed, a carbon monoxide detector will alert you to the danger.
- Kitchen appliances - Gas-powered ovens and ranges also give off dangerous levels of carbon monoxide when leaking or burning improperly.
- Other sources - Laundry dryers with a clogged vent, power tools, and certain other sources of carbon monoxide may be present indoors.
Carbon Monoxide Detector Installation in Charlotte
Our electricians will help you choose the best locations for carbon monoxide detection. We consider the location of HVAC equipment, chimneys, gas cooking appliances, generators, and other likely sources of carbon monoxide.
Having an electrician install your carbon monoxide detector means that we can get the alarm system hardwired to your electrical supply for reliable power at all times. A backup battery will add safety, but the hardwiring is definitely the safest way to go.
Maintenance and Repairs for CO Detectors
Experts recommend testing a carbon monoxide detector monthly. Replace backup batteries annually or twice a year if the battery is the main supply. If the test fails, if you have trouble reaching the alarm, or the device seems to be malfunctioning — call Roby Electric!
Our licensed and insured electricians can service any kind of carbon monoxide detector. If you’re interested in improving the safety and reliability of an old battery-powered model (or if your old one makes annoying noises) we can also talk about replacing the detector with a new hardwired model.
