Carbon Monoxide Detector
Carbon monoxide is a natural gas that is used in many homes in furnaces, gas stoves, water heaters, and fireplaces. But heavy concentration can be deadly, which is why itâ€™s so essential to make sure your home is equipped with a carbon monoxide detector. Steer clear of those combination smoke/carbon monoxide detectors; smoke rises, but carbon monoxide tends to hang out near the floor, so thereâ€™s no effective place to put a combo device. Instead, get a dedicated carbon monoxide detector. Itâ€™s recommended to have one on each floor of the house, including an extra one outside of sleeping areas.
