Replacing Your Carbon Monoxide Detector

Question: How often should a Carbon Monoxide Detector be replaced?

Answer: Every 5 Years.

Carbon Monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that is very toxic and deadly.  Gas fired appliances such as a furnace, hot water heater, fireplace, or a stove can emit carbon monoxide. This is dangerous in the home and can be a silent killer. A carbon monoxide detector will detect the gas in the air and alert you when the gas is present. Carbon monoxide detectors last about five years, however, batteries need to be changed every year.
