Toxic gases are dangerous, treacherous, and invisible enemies that can hide in your home. They are not detectable by humans. That’s why a gas detector is an invaluable asset in every home.


Why do you need a carbon monoxide & other gas detectors in your home?


Why a gas detector?A carbon monoxide detector is protection that is critical in every Canadian home.

It is necessary because VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are toxic.  These toxic gases include:

  • carbon monoxide
  • nitrogen oxides
  • radon

Even worse, they are often devious because many of them are odorless. They can cause:

  • irritation
  • nausea
  • headaches

They can also cause more serious problems such as:

  • cancer
  • fertility problems
  • even death

These reasons are more than enough to warrant the installation of a gas detector.

Carbon monoxide is a deadly gas that cannot be detected by smell or sight

    • to connect
  • combined smoke and carbon monoxide detector
    • with alkaline batteries
    • with lithium batteries

Commercial or industrial gas detectors

Residential carbon monoxide detectors are not suitable for a trade or industry because:

they do not have the same sensitivity,
the presence of other types of gas can affect their operation,
Magnetic fields or moisture can affect their performance.


Where to install your carbon monoxide detector?


Fixed gas detectors

In general, fixed residential gas detectors must be installed near the living space of occupants, including the bedrooms.

They can also be fixed in the room where the heaters are located in a multi-family building or a commercial building, for example.

Carbon monoxide has about the same weight as the air in the room; it mixes with the ambient air. Thus, it is not necessary to fix this detector height. An outlet can suffice, depending on the type of detector.


Portable gas detectors

People who are at high risk for carbon monoxide exposure can be protected by portable gas detectors that can be:

  • Attached to the vehicle likely to produce carbon monoxide to be perfectly visible. For example:
  • forklift
  • resurfacer (Zamboni)
  • etc
  • worn by:
    • heating
    • firefighters
    • emergency medical service responders (SAMU)
    • etc.

If the alarm goes off, corrective or preventive measures can be taken.
