Important considerations regarding our Nations CO Problems

George –

If SGA was to do a CO Seminar again in 2004, what would you see as the hot topics that need to be included?

Hope all’s well with you!

Thank You for asking me to comment on the “Important
Considerations”, regarding our Nation’s C  O problems in 2004.
In my opinion the “Problems” are:

1. Continuing Poor Performance of UL Listed C  O Alarms.
a. No “Time of Manufacture” testing required.
b. No “Lifetime Reliability” testing requirements.
c. NO “Digital Display Accuracy” Requirements.

2. Consumers are “Ignoring” their C  O Alarm activation’s, failing to “Call Anyone”.

a. We NEED to encourage the CONSUMER to sign up for a HVAC Service Contract, to insure Annual Inspections, and to have a “TRAINED” HVAC Contractor to “Investigate” each & every C  O alarm activation.

3. Point out to your Customers the “Disclaimers” put on all
UL / CSA Listed C  O Alarms regarding the Total Lack of protection from Chronic Low Level C  O Poisoning so badly NEEDED by:

1. The Pregnant
2. Infants & Young Children
3. The Elderly
4. Those with “Medical Conditions”; such as:
a. Asthma
b.Bronchitis, Emphysema, or any other Respiratory Problem
c. Heart Disease or Anemia

As you can see, a Large Percentage of YOUR CUSTOMERS.

Best Regards,
George E. Kerr, President
