If you use any gas or oil appliances in your home, including fireplaces, water heaters, furnaces, boilers, or stoves, you’re constantly at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. While this doesn’t mean that you’re always breathing in the toxic gas, it does mean that an unexpected gas leak or chimney failure could result in serious danger for you and your family! That’s why, if you use any gas or oil burning appliances in your home, installing a carbon monoxide detector is an absolute must.
Carbon monoxide detectors, particularly low-level carbon monoxide detectors (which can sense even small traces of the gas) come with a variety of features to make them even more valuable appliances to have in your home.

There are three main types of carbon monoxide detectors:
Carbon monoxide detectors can be battery powered, hardwired, or a combination (hardwired with a battery backup). At All Seasons, we recommend installing the combo. It will need to be installed by our technicians, but it won’t eat up batteries and it will work in the event of a power outage.
Many carbon monoxide detectors come with a variety of special features to make them even more useful. Some of these special features include:
When installing carbon monoxide detectors, make sure you place one on every floor (preferably near sleeping areas) and one above the garage to catch carbon monoxide coming in from car exhaust. For best results, install your carbon monoxide detectors at least 15 feet away from your fuel burning appliances—this will prevent false alarms.
