Keep Your Family and Indio Area Home Safe with a Carbon Monoxide Detector
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless poisonous gas that is a byproduct of combustion. Stoves, heaters, water heaters, and heat pumps are potential sources of CO. In order to keep your home safe, safety experts recommend that you install at least one carbon monoxide alarm near sleeping areas in your home—but there are other areas that should be protected as well.
