Carbon monoxide gas is known to be a silent killer. Heavy dosage of this gas can lead in death of a person. There are thousands of people that get admitted in "emergency rooms" just because of this gas. However, all these tragedies can be prevented easily by installing carbon monoxide sensors as well as detectors.

While purchasing the CO detector, it is important to consider some of the features. Though these detectors are inexpensive, it is essential for you to consider these features in order to obtain best protection from these devices.

One thing should be noted that not all CO detectors are equally created. One can find huge varieties of these detectors in the market. Thus, you must ensure that you are purchasing the best detector for your home.

1. CO Detectors are available in several models such as hard-wired, plug-in and battery operated. It does not matter which model you choose, what matters is the backup battery. You should always look for backup battery because without it your detector will be useless in the power cuts.

2. Always go with that CO detector that has digital display. However, digital display has nothing to do with the functioning of detector, but still it is recommended. When the detector is showing "0" in the digital display meter, it shows that there is nothing to worry. Alarms are triggered when this reading goes to "30" ppm. CO below the 30 ppm is considered safe for the humans; however it can have some harmful effects on the unborn babies.

3.While purchasing the CO detector, always keep in mind that who will be using it. For example, if you are having any impaired person in your house, then it is crucial that your detector should be equipped with some kind of 'light feature'. Since the impaired person can't hear the alarm; this light feature will him or her alert.

4.Last but not the least; choose a well-known and reputable brand. Carbon monoxide sensors as well as detectors are considered to be life-saving devices. Thus, it becomes important for you to put your trust in the capable hands. Excellent customer services as well as years of experience should be your top-most priorities when it comes for choosing the CO detectors. A reputed brand can ensure that your device will last for several years without any troubles. Thus, choosing a trustworthy brand is extremely important.
