Smoke Alarm Vs Carbon Monoxide Detector. Is there a difference?

Updated: Mar 5, 2020

I love the feeling of being safe and worry free in my home, how about you?  The obvious steps for that feeling of security include the basics- in home security systems and smoke alarms. We may all know of someone or have heard of someone who unfortunately fell victim to a home fire, inking in our minds the need to have a working smoke alarm. What though about a carbon monoxide detector? Are they equally important?

Carbon Monoxide or “CO” is an odorless, colorless gas that can kill you. According to the CDC website (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) carbon monoxide is found in fumes produced anytime you burn fuel in cars, trucks, small engines, stoves, lanterns, grills, fire places, gas ranges, or furnaces. CO can build up indoors and poison people and animals who breath it.

With this knowledge it’s easy to see the importance of having an in-home CO detector.

If you have found the cost of a monitored CO alarm and smoke alarm to be outside of your budget, I’d like to introduce the Honeywell 5800COMBO. It is a professionally monitored, wireless, combination smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector designed to help protect people and property. The 5800COMBO provides multi-threat detection and reacts fast to real danger-while helping to reduce false alarms.

Monoxide detector only detects gas but smoke alarm plays a very important role to protect human life from fire incidents, Always employ Local Locksmith Olympia specialists because they install smoke and fire alarms in your home, office, and garage to avoid fire incidents.
