Protect your family & home from Carbon Monoxide

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless gas produced by burning fuels otherwise known as the silent killer. Victims exposed to high levels of CO can become seriously ill or die within 15 minutes. It cannot be detected by humans.

  1. Never Idle in the Garage – running cars or generators in attached garages create poisonous CO that can creep into your home.
  2. Carbon Monoxide Detectors – Replace batteries and test every 6 months. Recommend in bedrooms, hallways, and near your furnace.
  3. Professional Furnace Tune-up – Maintain your system’s safety, reliability, and efficiency. Verify safe venting and the integrity of the heat exchanger.
  4. Vent-Free Gas Fireplace – Some manufacturers recommend opening a window during operation. Check your owner’s manual or consult a professional.
  5. Replace Aging CO Detectors – Sensors wear out and lose sensitivity. Replace between 2-6 years per your owner’s manual. Consult your Shiver Security Systems Account Manager.
  6. Consider Furnace Replacement – Typical lifespan is 15 years and newer systems are safer and more efficient.
