Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detectors
All Virginia Beach area property owners should understand the value and importance of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors for both residential and commercial properties. These devices not only help property owners save themselves from very expensive property damage but also save lives. When a fire happens at an odd time like the middle of the night, smoke detectors can alert residents, so they have time to evacuate. Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless, and can cause severe health problems in a very short time. Having a reliable carbon monoxide detector can provide much needed warning before carbon monoxide poisoning jeopardizes someone’s life.
Despite their importance and the safety measures they offer, many property owners in Virginia Beach and throughout the US overlook smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. If you are not sure how reliable your current detectors are, or if you are building a new property in the Virginia Beach area and want to ensure it is as safe as possible, Nipper Electric can help.
How Do Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors Work?
Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are simple and straightforward devices. They are best placed in the areas of a structure most likely to experience a fire, such as kitchens, laundry rooms, and utility rooms. It is also common practice to install these detectors in each bedroom in a residential property. This can be especially important to families with small children who are especially vulnerable to carbon monoxide poisoning. Once installed, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors will continuously operate and alert property owners to the presence of smoke or carbon monoxide, respectively.
While smoke detectors are mandatory for almost every property in Virginia Beach, carbon monoxide detectors are not. However, they provide such an important safety measure for a property that the team at Nipper Electric strongly recommends installing these devices. Having this extra layer of security can provide the protection you and your family need against the severe medical problems that carbon monoxide poisoning can cause, including fatal issues in some cases.
