I have never been more thankful for my carbon monoxide detector.
One night we were all sleeping.
Luckily, I am a little sleeper. I heard this faint alarm going off from somewhere. It would not stop so I had to find it. I looked and followed the noise. When I realized it had been coming from that carbon monoxide detector, I woke everyone up. I made them go outside to our meeting place. We immediately called the emergency line. When they got there and checked it out, they confirmed it was from the gas furnace. The gas furnace had broken down and it needed to be fixed.As a result of it breaking, it had leaked some of those very harmful gases into the air. There was no way we were going to be able to stay in our house that night. We went to a friends house down the street. The whole house was filled with carbon monoxide gas. We all could have been seriously injured. We could have been killed if it weren’t for the carbon monoxide detector. My best advice for someone who wants to install this into their home, is to also install a carbon monoxide detector. It could save your life. Even if you do not think it could happen to you. You never know when a gas furnace could break down. The carbon monoxide detector would be your only way of knowing. Before you actually knew, it could be too late. Always know the ups and downs of what you invest in and make sure you are well prepared.
