TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2016 /CNW/ - Carbon monoxide poisoning can happen any time of year, but is most common during the winter months when heaters and fireplaces are in high use and the windows are closed. You cannot see, taste or smell this gas, the only safe way to detect it is with functioning carbon monoxide alarms.

"It is advised that homeowners check the date of all alarms and replace any CO or combination smoke/CO alarms made prior to 2009. When replacing or installing CO alarms, ensure that they are located near bedrooms so you can hear them when sleeping; and look for Kidde's new range of "Worry-Free" products that come with a sealed, tamper-proof, 10-year lithium battery that lasts for the entire life of the alarm," says Carol Heller, Home Safety Specialist with Kidde Canada.

This new generation of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are helping to solve the three most common issues consumers have with their alarms: where to install them, false alarms, and the need to replace batteries. If your alarms are up-to-date and are not "Worry-Free" models, remember to change the batteries twice a year. For more information, visit www.safeathome.ca.
