The 6 Detectors Every Property Should Have
Creating a safe environment is an important consideration for any homeowner. Thankfully, though a number of serious safety hazards lurk around the average home, most of these concerns can be addressed pretty easily with home hazard detection systems.
The right detectors will alert you to any danger giving you plenty of time to get out of harm’s way. After all, if something goes wrong, you want to know about it.
So, which kind of detectors does your property need? In this post, we’re going to take a look at the 6 detectors that every property should have…
1. Carbon Monoxide
This tasteless, odourless and poisonous gas kills 374 Americans, on average, every year. The symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning aren’t always obvious and can go unnoticed for a long time. That’s why detectors are so important, monitoring the air and alerting you to increased levels of carbon monoxide.
For many properties, commercial or otherwise, heat is an ever-present feature. But, in those areas where high heat normally occurs, such as the kitchen, a sudden rise in temperature could go unnoticed. Rate-of-rise heat sensors are vital for these areas, alerting you to any dangerous increases in temperature.
Many fire alarms and detectors out there are triggered by smoke, rather than heat. Smoke can be very dangerous, causing drowsiness and even death, if exposure is prolonged. Photoelectric smoke sensors can be placed around your property, alerting the control panel if an unacceptable level of smoke is detected in a room.
You won’t need to worry about unwanted visitors with effective intruder detectors. Whether its surveillance cameras keeping an eye on your property, alarms set to alert you to any intruders or both, intruder detection offers complete peace-of-mind. Not only will these security measures alert you to any potential intruders, it often scares them away in the first place.
Liquified petroleum gas (LPG) is used to power motorhomes, caravans and even some cars. It’s a cost effective, eco-friendly and more sustainable alternative to traditional fuel. But, without proper monitoring, LPG can poison those coming into contact with it. Breathing in too much of the fumes or coming into contact with the liquid itself, can be harmful and even fatal.
