January is National CO Awareness Month. Are you protected from Carbon Monoxide this winter?

The First Alert Store will be observing National CO Awareness Month this January by spotlighting a large selection of First Alert Carbon Monoxide Alarms and Combination Alarms. The ensuing winter months can be steady contributors in releasing dangerous amounts of carbon monoxide (CO) into surrounding breathing air. This can be attributed to the heavier use of heating sources such as: furnaces, gas heaters and portable generators. Due to its odorless and colorless characteristics, carbon monoxide poses a significant danger as this winter's 'silent killer'. The Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) released a statistic that indicated carbon monoxide as being responsible for an average of 450 deaths each year. It's a terrifying number that sees its largest spike in the winter months of December, January and February. The First Alert Store offers a wealth of First Alert Carbon Monoxide Detectors and First Alert Combination Detectors that provide a definitive means of securing steadfast protection against this all too lethal toxin.

First Alert Battery Operated Alarms: Simple Installation and 10 Years of CO Detection

First Alert CO Alarms use Advanced Electrochemical CO Sensors to quickly identify the earliest traces of carbon monoxide in the surrounding area. Advanced Electrochemical CO Sensors are currently the most accurate technology available for purchase. The First Alert Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Temperature, Digital Display and 10-Year Sealed Battery implements this technology and bolsters productivity by ensuring a decade's worth of uninterrupted sensing. This First Alert CO Detector is incredibly convenient as it forgoes the traditional hardwired setup and allows for immediate installation via the included batteries. The First Alert 10-Year Sealed Battery Combo Photoelectric Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm incorporates the themes of a 10 year lifespan and battery operation, while adding a photoelectric sensor. Photoelectric sensors provide the quickest means of identifying a fire.

First Alert Hardwired Combo Alarms: Create a Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detection Network

First Alert Hardwired Carbon Monoxide Alarms include the added ability to interconnect with one another. This allows homeowners to create their very own customized carbon monoxide and smoke detection network. The First Alert Hardwire Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Battery Backup performs exceptionally well on its own, but can be interconnected with other compatible BRK or First Alert Alarms. As soon as one alarm in the network is triggered, the entire network of detectors will sound off. The First Alert Hardwire Photoelectric Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Voice & Location Feature includes all of the aforementioned settings while adding voice detection. Whenever smoke or carbon monoxide is detected, this First Alert Combo Alarm (and other voice enabled detectors in the network) will alert you to the particular danger and its location.
