The best method of detection is to use a carbon monoxide detector in your home. A carbon monoxide detector is like a smoke alarm. It monitors the air for carbon monoxide and gives an alarm if a specific level is detected. Ideally, you should have at least one detector adjacent to every living area, centrally located, or on each floor in your home. Carbon monoxide detectors are best when used in combination with a maintenance plan. Call 217-689-2469 for a complimentary consultation about purchasing a carbon monoxide detector.
