The Benefits of Installing Fire and Carbon Monoxide Detectors in Your Home

ire and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors are essential for the safety of your family. They provide early detection of smoke and CO, which can help prevent injury or death. In New Jersey and Bergen County specifically, it is important to have both types of detectors installed in your home to ensure that you and your family are safe from any potential danger.

Smoke detectors work by detecting particles of combustion in the air. When smoke is detected, an alarm will sound so that you and your family can evacuate the area quickly and safely.

It is important to install smoke detectors on every level of your home, as well as near sleeping areas such as bedrooms or nurseries. Additionally, it is also important to regularly check the batteries in your smoke detectors to make sure they are working properly. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless gas that can be deadly if inhaled over long periods of time or in high concentrations. 

The Importance of Carbon Monoxide Detectors

CO detectors act like smoke detectors but detect CO instead; when the detector senses too much CO in the air, an alarm will sound so that you can evacuate quickly and safely. It is especially important to have a CO detector installed in homes where fuel-burning appliances such as furnaces, water heaters, stoves, or fireplaces are present because these appliances can release dangerous levels of CO into the air if not properly maintained.

In New Jersey and Bergen County specifically, there are laws about smoke and CO detector installation that all homeowners must abide by in order to keep their families safe. All homes must have a battery-operated or hardwired smoke detector installed on each floor level including basements (unless they’re unfinished). Additionally, all bedrooms should be equipped with either a hardwired or battery-operated photoelectric smoke detector; these devices detect smoldering fires more effectively than traditional ionization units do. Finally, any home with a fuel-burning appliance must have an operational carbon monoxide detector installed on each floor level including basements (unless they’re unfinished).
