Why an Alarm System in Winter is SO Important

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless “invisible killer.” CO poisoning increases in the Winter due to heating systems running constantly.

  • Get your heating system, water heater and other gas, oil & coal burning appliances professionally cleaned and inspected.
  • Never run your car in an enclosed garage. Never use a generator, grill, or gasoline burning device inside your home.
  • An average of 400 people die from accidental carbon monoxide poisoning every year in the US, and thousands of others visit the emergency room for symptoms. These symptoms include dizziness, feeling light-headed, shortness of breath, chest pain, confusion and nausea. Seek medical attention right away if you suspect CO poisoning.
  • Install CO detectors in every bedroom. They should be tested at least twice a year. Mahoney Alarms monitors your CO detectors at our 24-hour central monitoring station in Glens Falls, NY. We make the emergency call. We also recommend an inspection to ensure all devices are working properly. 24-hour on call service is available to keep your system operating to your standards and per code.
