Electrical CO and Smoke Detectors
If you own a Tacoma area home or business, keeping the people inside safe is your biggest priority. This is why you need carbon monoxide (CO) detectors and smoke detectors installed in your building. Receiving a fast alert to dangers that may otherwise escape notice is often a lifesaver.
Having carbon monoxide and smoke detector installation is not only good sense, it is also legally required. You both want and need experienced and knowledgeable professional electricians for the job who know local codes.
At Resicon LLC, we hold an electrical contractor’s license from the State of Washington. Additionally, our electricians are OSHA 10-certified and have numerous other certifications, such as first aid and CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation). We understand all local code requirements so we can help you keep your home or business safe.
Why Is Carbon Monoxide Detection Vital?
Carbon monoxide is a byproduct of combustion. Anything that burns can create carbon monoxide, but the main concern for homes and businesses is from the burning of natural gas in appliances such as furnaces, water heaters, ovens, and stoves.
In addition, leaving a car running in a closed garage can be a dangerous source of carbon monoxide in your home. This gas is supposed to be safely vented from a building, but if it starts to build up, it can lead to nausea, dizziness, headaches, and other flu-like symptoms. In high enough concentrations, it is fatal.
Because carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, it is necessary to have special carbon monoxide detectors in a building to provide a warning of unsafe carbon monoxide levels. Our electricians who handle carbon monoxide detector installations know the proper locations to place the units to provide maximum safety and to meet code requirements.
Smoke Detector Installation
Even homes that do not use natural gas will benefit from having smoke detectors in place to quickly identify smoke from any source, such as fires in the kitchen or from an electrical malfunction. There are different types of smoke detectors that use a range of methods to identify the presence of smoke and then send an alert.
The most common detectors are ionization smoke alarms (more responsive to fires with high flames) and photoelectric smoke alarms (more responsive to slow, smoldering fires). You can trust our professional electricians to ensure you have the right units. In many cases, we might recommend a smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector combined in one unit.
Detector Replacements and Repairs
Along with installing carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, we also offer detector replacement. If you test your detectors (which we recommend you do every six months) and find one is no longer working, contact us. Our experts will inspect your current detector(s) and will effectively access what needs to be done.
If you need to replace either your carbon monoxide or smoke detector, our electricians will alert you immediately. You can count on our honesty as well. We will never try to upsell you a new or replacement detector you do not need.
