What Carbon Monoxide Detectors Will & Won’t Do

Carbon Monoxide Alarms

What they can and cannot do

  • CAN – sense unacceptable levels of CO in the air
  • CAN – provide early warning, before a healthy adult might show symptoms
  • CAN – act as round-the-clock monitor of CO
  • CAN – only sense CO that reaches it – Where you hang a detector is important
  • CAN – breakdown like any other electronic device
  • CANNOT – work without electrical power (batteries, AC)
  • CANNOT – sense smoke, natural gas, propane, etc. (It is not a smoke detector!)

Where to put (or not put) your detector

  • PUT – near a bedroom, or other room where people spend most of their time; where its alarm can be heard.
  • READ the instructions that come with your Detector.
  • DO NOT PUT – in garage, furnace room, near cooking stove, etc.
  • DO NOT PUT – in dead air space, corner of room, near the floor, in the peak of a vaulted ceiling.
  • DO NOT PUT – near open windows or doors.
  • DO NOT PUT – in excessively hot or cold areas, or excessively damp or dry areas.

Crowther's HVAC did a total install for an older house for me 14 years ago. They are very good at what they do and are also the epitome of customer service. Any problems that I have had they took care of immediately at very reasonable prices. Add in that they are all really good people and you have the formula for a very successful business. Rereccomend them highly."

I selected Crowther to replace both of my HVAC systems and they did a great job. They went the extra mile to correct duct work, and add a vent in order to bring my homes HVAC systems up to the best performance.

We had a total duel system heat pump replacement. It was a pleasure working with CHAC. From the sales rep to the technicians responsible for the install. Very professional in their craftsmanship and ensuring everything was installed and working correctly. Very courteous and respectful of our property. We are new to the area and am glad we chose CHAC for our HVAC needs.

For 25 years, Crowther has provided excellent customer service and support for our Carrier zoned heat pump. They are responsive, helpful and great to work with! We love their seasonal maintenance program and have had them complete some system redesign for our home renovation. All around a great team!
