  • Carbon monoxide (CO) is a tasteless, odorless and invisible gas, but the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning can be deadly, which is why it’s often referred to as the “silent killer.” Carbon monoxide can be emitted from many household appliances including refrigerators, and . This is why carbon monoxide detectors are so important in a home. The detectors are designed to measure CO levels and sound an alarm if dangerous levels are found.

    Install a carbon monoxide alarm in your home. The sensing technology in a carbon monoxide detector accurately measures the levels of CO and the time of exposure, and is designed to sound before carbon monoxide levels become threatening.

  • Using an electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor-the most accurate technology available, the Floureon Battery Powered Carbon Monoxide Alarm Sensor provides optimal performance each time. It is powered by three AA replaceable alkaline batteries, which means you can keep you mind at ease even during power outages. Its test/silence button is designed to silence the alarm and allow you to test its functionality. The red LED will pulse and a loud alarm pattern will sound if a dangerous level of carbon monoxide is detected.

    To give you more realistic price data so you can calculate how much carbon monoxide detector can cost you, then I created the following unit price table that shows price of .

    Replace any detector:

    • Periodically upon the expiration of their useful life.
    • In 30 days if it becomes inoperable within one year of installation due to a defect and no fault of the occupant.
    • Which has been stolen, removed, missing or rendered inoperable before new tenant moves in if prior tenant has not replaced it.

    Provide written information regarding the testing and maintenance of detectors, including general information concerning carbon monoxide poisoning and what to do if an alarm goes off, to at least one adult occupant of each dwelling unit when the unit is installed. Y N
    Keep and provide upon request all records relating to the installation and maintenance of:
    • Smoke detectors (provide to HPD)
    • Carbon monoxide detectors (provide to HPD, DOB, DOHMH or FDNY)

    Actually, it will depend on brand name and its features. In the market, carbon monoxide detector price ranges from $5 to $35 per piece. So, if you have to install 5 pieces, then you have to prepare budget in average $100. There is no installing cost since you can install it by yourself. It is very easy to do.

carbon monoxide detector wiring diagram

A carbon monoxide detector or CO detector is a device that detects the presence of the (CO) gas in order to prevent . In the late 1990s Underwriters Laboratories (UL) changed their definition of a single station CO detector with a sound device in it to a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm. This applies to all CO safety alarms that meet UL 2034; however for passive indicators and system devices that meet UL 2075, UL refers to these as carbon monoxide detectors. CO is a colorless, tasteless and odorless compound produced by incomplete combustion of carbon containing materials. It is often referred to as the "silent killer" because it is virtually undetectable without using detection technology and, in a study by Underwriters Laboratories, "Sixty percent of Americans could not identify any potential signs of a CO leak in the home". Elevated levels of CO can be dangerous to humans depending on the amount present and length of exposure. Smaller concentrations can be harmful over longer periods of time while increasing concentrations require diminishing exposure times to be harmful.
