Why You’ll Need A Pro to Install Your Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Enlist Professional Help to Protect Your Family from This Stealthy Danger
One of the most significant threats to your family’s safety isn’t always something as visible as a burglary or a fire. Sometimes it’s a colorless, odorless -- and deadly -- gas that you need a professionally installed device to detect.
Though it’s unpleasant to think about the number of fatalities and injuries caused by carbon monoxide poisoning, it’s the most common accidental poisoning risk and takes several hundred lives per year. The more positive news? These dangers are highly preventable; you’re off to a great start now that you’re reading this blog.
The professional installation team at Lowitt Alarms will make sure your family stays safe from this fatal risk, and that you receive an alert each time the device detects a leak in your home. In this blog, we’ll walk you through some of the best practices that we enforce with each smoke and carbon monoxide detector installation and why a professional is worth the investment.

Placement Is Important
Now that we’ve established that you need carbon monoxide detectors, we have to let you in on a little secret: many DIYers want to find a big-box store carbon monoxide (CO) detector, install it in one location in their home and then call that project complete. While a novice installation certainly beats zero devices, it simply doesn’t live up to our standards. Worse, you’re the one left holding the bag if your DIY project fails.
That’s why we always recommend professional installation, a service plan and ongoing maintenance – and you won’t get all of those from a DIY solution. To further reinforce your security, we have 24/7/365, UL-certified, caring operators standing by for security emergencies, with support question availability from 8:30 a.m to 5 p.m.
CO detector placement also proves a vital aspect of keeping every area and floor safe, and professionals like us at Lowitt Alarms can inspect your home and find the choice locations to optimally protect your family. For instance, we always recommend investing in a CO detector for each level, and even more for larger homes. We make sure to set up devices close to garages to warn homeowners of car-related fumes.
Conversely, we avoid high-moisture areas or direct-sunlight environments when installing detectors. We’re also careful to keep them from any space where children could tamper the devices.
You Need the Best Equipment
Every detector we install is approved by Underwriters Laboratories, or UL, to meet strict testing and safety requirements. If you’ve worked with us before, then you know that we integrate all your monitors into your home security suite, so you’ll receive real-time alerts in case of any emergency.
When it comes to your family and home’s safety, you don’t want to take any chances. That’s why installing trusted and dependable equipment is a must. When you work with our team of professionals, we ensure that you get highest quality products and devices put in place that could end up being the difference between disaster and absolute security.
