It’s easy to overlook the existence of your smoke detector & CO detector. After all, when they’re out of sight, they’re out of mind. However, the importance of these individual or dual smoke & CO detectors, should not be disregarded.
What do these devices do?
Every home is required to have a smoke detector. This device senses smoke in the air as an indication of fire. Some smoke detectors send a signal to the fire department, while others only produce a loud audible signal to notify residents. CO detectors can sense when carbon monoxide permeates the air to prevent the harmful effects of this poisonous gas. Exposure to carbon monoxide can lead to a headache, dizziness, shortness of breath, vomiting, and nausea. Individuals whose breathing is affected may go into respiratory arrest, which can lead to death. There are also long-term effects that can emerge from excessive exposure to carbon monoxide, such as neurological complications including dementia, depression, and memory problems, just to name a few.
One common cause for a smoke and CO detector to sound off is a household fire. Smoke is often emitted into the air due to burning food on the stove or oven, fireplace smoke, or an actual fire. Smoke detectors can also detect electrical fires due to a power surge or faulty, defected wiring. It’s important to get surge protection to prevent a hazardous power surge that can quickly result in an electrical fire. If you’re unsure of the condition of your wires and are looking to get an electrical panel inspection in Burlington County, Camden County, Mercer County, Bucks County, Montgomery County, or Philadelphia County, the electricians at Service Pup are the ones to call.
