The hazards of carbon monoxide
Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless, and difficult to detect. We often see someone in a certain area burning charcoal and sleeping at home because of the cold, especially in winter. Unconsciously, carbon monoxide was poisoned. I have often seen a lot of gas poisoning before. Especially use a water heater when taking a bath. If the doors and windows are not ventilated, it is very easy to be poisoned by carbon monoxide. Therefore, we need a carbon monoxide alarm to come to our menstrual period.
The victim usually doesn’t feel much at the beginning of the poisoning. After being moderately poisoned, headaches, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and weakness begin to occur. But when people realize the poisoning, and then want to struggle to get out of bed and open the door and open the window, only a few people can do it. Most patients will have convulsions and coma quickly, if treatment is not timely. Respiratory depression can occur quickly and death.
What is a carbon monoxide alarm
The carbon monoxide alarm is an electronic device used to detect carbon monoxide gas. It can sound an alarm when the concentration of carbon monoxide in the air exceeds the standard. Effectively prevent vicious accidents caused by carbon monoxide leakage.
The gas alarm has attracted people’s attention to gas under the mandatory installation regulations of the country. But many people may think it is superfluous, thinking that as long as they pay attention to it, everything will be fine. Therefore, the popularity of carbon monoxide alarms in China is still far from enough.
How to install the alarm?
Select the installation location of the alarm, generally about 1.5 meters above the ground on the bed or table. Then, fix the base of the alarm to the wall with the screws included in the accessories. Then install the battery, and then screw the alarm to the base. (Note: Align the bottom cover of the alarm with the vertical bars on the base to facilitate screwing the alarm to the base.)
Daily maintenance of the alarm
In order to ensure the long-term reliability and accuracy of the alarm, the alarm performance should be calibrated regularly, and the period should not exceed one year. Exceeding the specified temperature and humidity allowable range may reduce or lose the detection function. Always keep the surface of the alarm clean, otherwise it will affect the normal operation of the alarm.
