  • In addition to carbon monoxide detectors, we also provide professional smoke detector installation services. Our team can ensure your property is up to code and give you peace of mind. Local and state laws require you to have a smoke detector installed near every bedroom as well as in hallways, garages, and stairways. New construction laws dictate that all homes must have smoke detectors hooked up to the electrical wiring. You should plan on replacing your smoke detectors every ten years because the electrical components inside them become unreliable as time goes on. Do not attempt to install these devices yourself because improper installation can result in failing devices that do not alert you in an emergency. Our licensed and insured electricians can help you select the right type of smoke detector for your building, including ionization detectors and photoelectric detectors.

Prevent Poisoning by Installing Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Each year there are many preventable devastating stories about people not waking up after a carbon monoxide leak went undetected in their home. A CO leak can come from a malfunctioning appliance, but a properly installed carbon monoxide detector will keep your family safe. Carbon monoxide can become lethal in just minutes, but a CO detector will detect elevated levels of carbon monoxide inside your home and alert you, so you have time to get out safely and get the problem fixed before you make your safe return. Many people are not aware of the symptoms of CO poisoning, so the team at Mr. Electric of Lancaster County has provided them for you. The symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning often feel similar to having the flu without a fever. Be aware of these symptoms of CO poisoning:

  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Sleepiness
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Weakness or fatigue
  • Lightheadedness
  • Irregular breathing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Confusion
  • Chest pain
  • Carbon monoxide can leak from many common household appliances, including furnaces, water heaters, wood or gas fireplaces, gas ranges or stoves, and gas clothes dryers. Other sources that can produce CO include fuel-burning space heaters, charcoal or gas grills, and exhaust from cars or other vehicles. Do not use any of these appliances in poorly ventilated areas. A venting malfunction in some of these appliances could lead to a rapid buildup of carbon monoxide. The poisonous gas could also back up into your home if you have a clogged chimney or a closed woodstove flue. Our team specializes in installing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors for homeowners in Lancaster, Elizabethtown, and Lebanon, PA.  We recommend the following actions to reduce your chances of CO poisoning:

    • Install CO detectors in your home with a minimum of one sensor on each floor and outside each bedroom.
    • Change the batteries in your carbon monoxide detector as often as every six months and at least once a year.
    • When purchasing gas appliances or equipment, check for the American Gas Association or Underwriters’ Laboratories (UL) seals of approval.
    • Never run a generator, vehicle, or device with a fuel-fed motor inside your home or garage.
    • Be sure you always turn off any vehicles parked inside your garage.
    • Never use a flameless chemical heater in an enclosed space or indoors.
    • Schedule an annual inspection of your gas appliances by our licensed appliance professionals.
    • Be sure to always open the flue when burning a fire in your fireplace or furnace.
    • Always hire service experts when you need repairs for your malfunctioning gas appliances.
    • Never heat your home using a gas oven.
    • Only operate grills in outdoor areas that are well-ventilated.
    • While camping, use battery-operated heaters.
    • Understand the sound your carbon monoxide detector will make compared to those of your smoke detector.
    • Adjust all your gas appliances properly and use an exhaust fan when necessary.
    • Contact the local fire department if you are not able to afford a carbon monoxide detector. There are programs in place to help low-income families and the elderly.
