Top 3 Reasons You Need a NEST Carbon Monoxide Detector


Everyone knows and understands why smoke detectors are so important for your home. If there is a fire and you are in a different part of your house, you need something to alert you in order to save your life. What many people don’t realize is that there is another detector that is just as important. Every home needs a NEST carbon monoxide detector, especially if you have a garage that is attached to your home.

In order to truly understand how crucial this device is, here are the top three reasons why you need to invest in a carbon monoxide detector for your house:

One: It is Extremely Poisonous

Heating systems can cause carbon monoxide leaks. They can also spread smoke throughout your home. Gas and oil heating systems and other appliances create carbon monoxide through combustion, which is normal when it has proper ventilation.

When these systems malfunction however, this is when carbon monoxide enters and spreads throughout your house. When inhaled, this gas can cause health side effects and even death.

Nobody should take the chance and risk not installing a carbon monoxide detector. With a gas this poisonous, it is crucial to take precautions in order to protect your loved ones. Companies such as Nelson Comfort offer a NEST carbon monoxide detector built into a smoke detector. This combined product truly offers the most protection for your loved ones and home.

Two: It is Odorless and Colorless

Not only is this gas extremely poisonous, it is also odorless and colorless. This means that you will have no idea if the gas is present in your home. A gas that can kill you and that you cannot detect on your own is a huge hazard to yourself, your family, and pets.

Therefore, it is necessary to install NEST carbon monoxide detectors in multiple areas of your home so that you are immediately alerted of any abnormal levels of carbon monoxide. The only sure way to prevent the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in your home is to get detectors to protect you from a gas that you cannot see or smell.

Three: It can be Easily Prevented

A carbon monoxide leak is always possible, but you can control the outcome. Installing NEST carbon monoxide detectors will immediately provide protection and safety for your loved ones. There is no need to fear this poisonous gas if you choose to take the necessary precautions. Prevent not knowing about a carbon monoxide leak and install a detector, such as a Nest Protect Smoke and CO Alarm.
