Carbon Monoxide Detectors in Schererville, IN
Some of the biggest threats to your family’s health and well-being are things you cannot see. And one of the biggest non-visible threats to a home is carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide poisoning is something that’s scary to think about, hospitalizing thousands of people a year in this country, and too often, the effects can be deadly. Anyone with gas appliances in the home is at risk of carbon monoxide leaking, though it’s recommended that every home—even those without gas appliances—has carbon monoxide detectors.
A carbon monoxide (CO) detector can save your life. The one-time expense and cost of batteries replacements throughout the years is far less of a concern than the potential effects of a leak. Contact trained professionals in Schererville, IN to install your carbon monoxide detectors to better protect your family members from CO poisoning. Call Earl's Heating & Air Conditioning for quality workmanship and excellent customer service. It’s all a matter of pride!

Carbon Monoxide Is Not Easily Detectable
If there’s a carbon monoxide leak in your home, it’s not something you’ll be able to see or detect very easily. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas. It’s not going to create a cloud of smoke or give off a rotten egg smell. Often, people only find out about a carbon monoxide leak because they are sick. If you have CO detectors on each floor of the home, they will go off when a leak is detected. This is just as important as having smoke detectors, as it allows you to find a safe place to go and call in technicians to find out what the problem is.
How Carbon Monoxide Gets into a Home
The most common way for carbon monoxide to get into a home is when the heat exchanger of your gas heating equipment leaks. Thankfully, this is something that happens very rarely. However, it’s always a possibility. Carbon monoxide is produced naturally by your gas heating equipment. Typically, the CO vents out the end of your heat exchanger and into a flue pipe that leads to the outdoors, away from your home. But if, over time, the heat exchanger develops a crack, CO could get into your home.
This is one more reason it’s so important to schedule heating maintenance visits each and every year with qualified heating technicians, and to call in for repairs as soon as you notice a problem. In addition, only allow skilled installers to put in your heater in the first place, and call our contractors for carbon monoxide detector installation in Schererville, IN.
Why Choose Professionals for CO Detector Installation
Carbon monoxide detection equipment should be tested before it’s a fixture in your home. A qualified technician can ensure that the equipment is working properly. In addition, your local technicians know all of the local codes and requirements for CO detector placement, and they have the proper tools to put them into place in your home.
