CO alarm truths you need to know
READ and REMEMBER this EXACT QUOTE from the “Important warning Statements, found on page 3 of this Kidde C O alarm Owner’s Manual.” The last paragraph in these warnings says:
“This alarm has not been investigated for carbon monoxide detection below 70 PPM.”
The fact that ADT, our Nation’s Largest Home Security Alarm Company, after losing several large Multi- Million Dollar Liability Lawsuits based on Chronic Low Level C O effects on the Fetus, REWORDED their National Advertising Ad on TV and Radio to now say that their Home Security Systems
“Protects you and your family from HIGH LEVELS of Carbon Monoxide.
All Indoor Air Quality C O Experts recognize that C O alarms Listed to UL 2034 offer very poor protection and NO, NONE, ZERO Protection from the lower levels of C O known to cause Chronic Low Level C O Poisoning. Please see the Lower Level C O “Disclaimers” that appear on EVERY UL-2034 / CSA-6.19 Listed C O alarm, usually on their packaging, and always in their Owner’s Manual.
A Kidde-Nighthawk Model #KN-COPP-3 says: “Pregnant women, infants, children, senior citizens, persons with heart or respiratory problems and smokers may experience symptoms at lower levels of exposure than noted. Individuals with medical problems may consider using warning devices which provide audible and visual signals for carbon monoxide concentrations under 30 ppm.”
PRO-TECH and their parent company S-Tech, say: “Individuals with medical problems may consider using warning devices which provide audible and visual signals for carbon monoxide concentrations under 30 ppm”.
The UNIVERSAL MODEL CD-9000 Warns: “Individuals with medical conditions may consider using warning devices which provide audible and visual signals for carbon monoxide concentrations under 30 ppm.”
All other UL-2034 / CSA-6.19 listed C O alarms have similar “Disclaimers.”
A critical part of our Marketing Success is our total dedication to my 50 year old Program developed to promote my 1973 “Eye-Opening “IF YOU DON’T TEST, … YOU DON’T KNOW” C O Sensor calibration excellence program. Our very early warnings of the presence of C O at 7, 10, 25, 35, and 50 PPM, with audible “Silence / Hush cycles at every audible alarm level, teamed up with our “Side by Side” comparison of the superior quality, accuracy and Health & Life safety Features makes it very easy for everyone to choose the level of C O Protection they want to protect their entire family, not just YOUNG, HEALTHY ADULTS for whom UL-2034 says their C O alarms are made to protect.
Personally, I do not believe any human, bird, dog or cat is properly protected by a UL-2034 C O alarm that is never REQUIRED to be tested for accuracy or even that they WILL Alarm at C O levels below 65 PPM.
UL-2034 C O alarms tell you that when they sound their C O alarm, to Call 911 for a ride to the hospital, and more likely than not, the Hyperbaric Therapy Chamber for immediate oxygen therapy.
When my C O – Experts sounds its audible alarm at 10 PPM, within SECONDS in “REAL-TIME”, I tell you to call your Heating Contractor or Certified C O Inspector to respond ASAP to find the source of your C O Incident.
