Protect Your Home & Family from the Invisible
Carbon monoxide has gained many different names, such as the “silent shadow” or “silent killer.” These names have been given to this deadly toxin because it’s often too late once you realize what is going on within your home. Carbon monoxide is very dangerous and can cause both short-term and long-term or even fatal issues.
If your home ends up leaking carbon monoxide, it may end up breathed in by your family. It will replace the oxygen in your blood, which will lead to the starvation of your vital organs and the killing off of cells. If this happens, it could lead to death.
Part of what makes carbon monoxide so dangerous is the fact that it comes with no odor, color or taste. It can kill you within minutes and carbon monoxide poisoning claims a number of lives every single year. It will cause you to slip into an unconscious state or it may attach when you’re already sleeping.
Even Dangerous in Smaller Doses
A smaller dose of carbon monoxide can also cause issues within the body. Long-term dangers may be very devastating and may change the rest of your life. A smaller dose my cause symptoms very similar to the flu, but may lead to many long-term or permanent issues.
Carbon monoxide has the ability to cause heart problems, brain damage, cognitive issues, personality changes and many other issues. It’s very important to reduce the possibility of breathing in carbon monoxide if a leak happens at home or at work.
Using Proper Carbon Monoxide Monitoring
It’s not enough to have a carbon monoxide monitor that goes off much like a smoke detector in your home. This will only do so much to protect you. If you don’t hear it and get out quickly enough, you could end up with serious health damage. Even if you do hear it, there’s a chance you’ll assume it’s a false alarm since you cannot smell the toxin.
Many household appliances and other items can cause a carbon monoxide leak. Vehicles, furnaces, gas ranges, grills, stoves, refrigerators and other items using gas can cause a carbon monoxide leak into your home. Without the right monitoring, you may be at a much higher risk.
When you decide you need to add carbon monoxide monitoring to your home, you need to choose monitoring with a 24-hour central monitoring center. The alarm needs to ensure someone is contacted even if you don’t hear it or don’t believe it’s real. What if you and your family were asleep and never heard the alarm go off?

Protection from Gas Leaks
Along with carbon monoxide, gas leaks can also be very dangerous within your home. You need to make sure you protect your home and family from the possibility of a gas leak. If you use gas for heating, any appliances or any reason at all, you need gas leak detection monitoring.
If a pipe within your home isn’t sealed correctly or a valve becomes damaged, it could cause a gas leak to happen. This may happen slowly and could cause the air to fill with the fumes. Not only will this lead to the possibility of an explosion or fire, but it could also cause many harmful health issues for your family.
Natural gas has the ability to spread very quickly when it’s leaking in a home. It’s also highly combustible making it the perfect culprit for fire and explosion. You need the type of protection that will not only alert your family, but also alert the authorities immediately. This is a life-threatening situation and requires the best possible protection.
24-Hour Monitoring for Carbon Monoxide and Natural Gas
Both of these silent killers can creep into your home at any time and cause major issues. You need full monitoring for both gas leaks and carbon monoxide to ensure your home is fully protected.

If emergency responders have to wait for you to figure out there’s an issue and make the phone call, it might be too late.
