More than 500 people in the US lose their lives as a result of accidental poisoning with CO every year, and thousands seek medical attention necessary because of dangerous exposure to carbon monoxide leaks, according to the US health department.
Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless, and canâ€™t be tasted which makes it very difficult to notice and feel in time before it causes harm, damage or even death to humans and animals.
The most popular source of this hazardous gas is automobile exhaust, but many homes are also in danger of being flooded with this dangerous gas from malfunctioning or unventilated fireplaces, furnaces or any fuel-based heating appliances, as well as by any other similar heating devices and generators.
Fortunately, the Nighthawk carbon monoxide detector is an affordable device, which is easy to install, easy to maintain and works great in early detection of possibly dangerous levels of this gas. The Universal Security instruments MICN109, integrated smoke, carbon monoxide and natural gas alarm is a perfect combination for ensuring triple safety to your home, office, garage, or any other premise you choose.
This 3-in-1 CO monitor, will also trigger an alarm if the levels of natural gas, fire or smoke reach a dangerous level. It is a plug-in device which runs on 120 Volts, but has battery backup available, in case there is a power outage.
