How do Carbon Monoxide (CO) Sensors Work?

For individuals looking to monitor carbon monoxide (CO) the use of a carbon monoxide sensor is an ideal solution. Most CO sensors operate based on electrochemical technology and can detect and measure CO concentration in the atmosphere. If the sensor detects high levels of CO, the sensor can trigger an alarm or indicate hazardous areas.

How to tell the presence of carbon monoxide (CO)?

Outside of instant indication from a CO sensor, other clues of CO leaks can include:

  • Soot marks on the front covers of gas fires
  • Brown stains on or around boilers, stoves, or fires
  • A smoke build-up in rooms because of a faulty flue
  • Yellow instead of blue flames coming from gas appliances

What releases carbon monoxide (CO) in a home?

  1. Water heaters
  2. Furnaces or boilers
  3. Fireplaces
  4. Gas stoves and ovens

"Easy to install, easy to set up, and easy calibration - just what I was looking for."
