How do you prevent your family from the silent killer (carbon monoxide) hiding inside your home?
December 15, 2019
Before moving ahead with the solution to prevent your family from Carbon Monoxide, let us first discuss what Carbon Monoxide is, and the sources that help in accumulating CO inside your home.
Carbon Monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas that is produced due to incomplete combustion of fuels such as gasoline, wood, coal, oil, propane, and methane. Some of the common sources that lead to rising carbon monoxide levels inside your home include fuel-burning appliances such as gas stoves, water heaters, cloth dryers, ovens, and power generators.
And as CO does not have any color, taste, or odor — it is not possible to know that your home is filled with increasing levels of Carbon Monoxide. This unpredictable nature of Carbon Monoxide can pose a severe threat to you and your kids’ health if left undetected. Having said that, while everyone staying inside your home is at the risk of CO poisoning, the rising level of Carbon Monoxide inside your home can be particularly harmful to your kids, as they tend to breathe faster — inhaling more Carbon Monoxide.
This can lead to serious health-related issues for your kids during the early stages of his/her life. For instance, if your child breathes CO — it can harm the ability of their blood to transport oxygen in the body.
Common Symptoms of Carbon Monoxide
3. Headache and Nausea
4. Breathing Issues
5. Loss of Muscular Coordination
6. Mental Confusion
Yes, you read that correctly. CO can even lead to death if the level of CO poisoning is higher inside your body. This is the reason why it is known as the SILENT KILLER.
CO Detection Sensor
Using the CO sensor is one of the fastest ways to detect a rising level of Carbon Monoxide. The CO sensor works in the same fashion as that of your smoke and fire sensors and will sound an alarm after detecting certain levels of Carbon Monoxide in the air inside your home.
Here at DFS, we understand the serious health issues posed by CO, and we know there is a need for efficient solutions. After all, it is the safety of your family on the line. As a result of which, after years of Research and Development, we have come up with the perfect solution to ensure your family’s safety. The DFS CO sensor can monitor Carbon Monoxide levels inside your home and alerts residents before it is too late.
The CO Sensor is synced with DFS Central Monitoring Station (CMS), which ensures prompt response to minimize damages.
