What is Carbon Monoxide? What can I do to protect myself and my family?

Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas which, if inhaled, is poisonous and can be fatal. In fact, Carbon Monoxide poisoning is the most common type of fatal air poisoning in many countries.

CO alarms should be installed in a central location outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home and in other locations where required by applicable laws, codes or standards. For the best protection, interconnect all CO alarms throughout the home. When one sounds, they all sound.

Choose a CO alarm that is listed by a qualified testing laboratory and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for placement and mounting height.  

For information regarding Colorado CO Law including rental laws reference house bill #09-1091.

 *Remember to check your expiration date on your alarm to make sure it is not expired.
