This month I want to talk about the importance of carbon monoxide detectors. Every year, 20,000 to 30,000 people in the United States are sickened by accidental carbon monoxide poisoning and approximately 500 people die, many in their own home. Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, which is why carbon monoxide detectors are so important. Most detectors are hard wired and interconnected, but if you have an older home, this may not be the case.
Kidde makes a battery powered detector that can be installed anywhere.
The Nighthawk battery operated carbon monoxide alarm is an easy to install unit that provides reliable protection against the dangers of carbon monoxide. Written information and instruction make this unit’s operation easy for anyone to understand. The Nighthawk DC Basic alarm has a small, sleek design that is suitable for all living areas and has a 7-year limited warranty.
- Battery Operated (3AA’s included) – Provides protection during power outages.
- Test/Reset Button – Tests the unit for proper operation. Resets the Carbon Monoxide alarm.
- 7-Year End of Life Warning – Alerts user to replace CO alarm after 7-years of operation. (40% longer than other CO alarms)
