A WORD FROM UL ABOUT CARBON MONOXIDE:
   PART 1PART 2

 


General Information about Natural Gas, Propane, Carbon Monoxide

Natural Gas (Methane) is a combustible, gaseous mixture of simple hydrocarbon compounds and is one of the cleanest fuels producing primarily carbon dioxide, water vapor and small amounts of nitrogen oxides. It is used extensively in residential, commercial and industrial applications. Like Carbon Monoxide Gas, Natural Gas (Methane) tends to put you into a deeper sleep.
Propane Gas in its natural state is colorless, odorless and extremely flammable. Like Natural Gas (Methane), gas utilities have added a chemical to give it a distinctive odor but it is still tasteless and colorless.
Propane Gas is heavier than air and accordingly will sink and accumulate near the floor of any room. When the concentration of the gas is high enough, any spark can cause the gas to explode causing serious injury, death and of course major damage to any building.
Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that kills, unless detected early. CO kills by displacing the oxygen in your blood. The Human Body requires oxygen for the burning of fuel (food) to provide it with the energy that allows our cells to live and function. Oxygen makes up approximately 21% of the atmosphere and enters our lungs when we breathe. In our lungs the oxygen combines with hemoglobin in the blood (oxyhemoglobin) and is carried in the blood stream throughout the body where it releases oxygen to the cells. CO is dangerous because it bonds more tightly to the hemoglobin than oxygen does. When CO combines with hemoglobin, the hemoglobin's ability to combine with oxygen is eventually lost. Your body begins to suffocate from the inside out, initially causing flu-like symptoms, then headache, drowsiness, confusion, unconsciousness, brain damage and ultimately DEATH! Individuals who are at greatest risk are unborn babies, infants, young children, senior citizens, or any one with coronary or respiratory problems.

How and Where to install Gas Detectors

Installation of Propane Gas Detector:
Propane gas is heavier than air, accordingly it will sink and accumulate near the floor of any room. Place the propane gas detector on the wall 2 feet from the floor, and at least 2 feet from any corner.

Installation of Natural Gas (Methane) Detector:
Like Carbon Monoxide Gas, Natural Gas (Methane) is lighter than air at normal room temperature and the greatest concentration tends to cloud immediately under the ceiling. The Natural Gas (Methane) detector should be installed no closer than 6" from the ceiling and away from "dead air space" in corners.

Installation of Carbon Monoxide Alarm:
CO is about 3% lighter than air and as such tends to rise under normal conditions.. CO at normal room temperature is dispersed uniformly in all directions and in effect engulfs a room. Install your CO Alarm within 40 ft of all rooms used for sleeping purposes.

Description

The GE SafeAir™ 250-CO carbon monoxide (CO) detector is an accurate and reliable means of alerting building occupants of potentially dangerous levels of CO in the protected area. The internal electrochemical sensor communicates with a sophisticated on-board microprocessor that accurately tracks CO levels over time. This commercial-grade detection technology results in quick response, reliable sensing, fast reset time, and superior false alarm immunity. Its small size allows the 250-CO to blend inconspicuously with any decor, and its smooth contoured design is compatible with both residential and commercial environments.

Unaffected by normal indoor temperature variations, the GE 250- CO actually self-adjusts for environmental changes and operates reliably under a wide variety of conditions. It also monitors its own performance and automatically compensates for sensitivity drift throughout the course of its service life.

Like all CO detectors, the 250-CO has a limited service life. When it reaches this point, the 250-CO's six-year end-of-life timer automatically triggers a warning, locally, at the control panel, and optionally, at a central monitoring station, indicating that the device should be serviced.

An integrated temporal four-horn provides local signaling capability for the 250-CO, and it easily interfaces with any Listed intrusion or fire alarm system by means of its 150mA output relay, which may be connected to the auxiliary input on the control panel. Its low current draw results in little additional demand on the system power supply.

The 250-CO fully complies with the latest UL 2075 requirements which allows for installation in a wide range of residential and commercial settings.

Statistics

Carbon monoxide is the leading cause of accidental poisoning death in America according to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). A 10-year study of such deaths reported in the August 7, 1991 issue of the Journal, disclosed an average of 1,100 deaths per year during the period of 1979 through 1988.

An estimated 10,000 to 15,000 persons per year in the U.S. seek medical attention or lose at least one day of normal activity as a result of CO inhalation.

The true number of annual CO poisonings is believed to be much higher. Unfortunately, wintertime is when the use of home heating appliances rises concurrently with viral influenza. Therefore, the diagnosis of CO poisoning is often missed. "One-fourth of people complaining of flu are actually suffering from CO poisoning."

Symptoms of Carbon Monoxide poisoning:

The disorientating effects of CO poisoning often prevent the victims from seeking help even though they are aware that they are not feeling well.

Be Alert To Signs of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Approximately 250 people in the United States died last year from the "Silent Killer" -- carbon monoxide (CO). This deadly gas is hard to detect because it is odorless, colorless and tasteless. The safety experts at Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) recommend that consumers follow these steps to help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning:

The safety experts at UL urge consumers to recognize the danger signs of CO before any harm can come to them or their families.

PART 2

UL Advises Homeowners to Never Ignore a CO Alarm

     A CO detector sounds an alarm because it detects elevated levels of CO in the household. Some detectors are more sensitive than others and will detect low, continuously present amounts of CO. Many people are experiencing alarms at this low level, which may not be dangerous -- but may still be a problem. Never ignore a CO detector alarm.
     UL urges people who experience nuisance alarms to have a qualified technician come and carefully inspect for sources of CO from all fuel-burning appliances, including gas ranges, gas stoves and fireplaces.
     UL responded to concerns about nuisance alarms by revising the Standard governing CO detectors. New UL Listed CO detectors available October, 1995 were required to meet the revised Standard in order to bear the UL Mark. These detectors will ignore low levels of CO for a much longer period of time and will be equipped with reset buttons to help confirm life-threatening CO problems.
     Carefully read the product packaging of the CO detector you purchase. CO detectors are designed with different options and features. Some are made to sound an alarm at chronic, low levels of CO while others will sound an alarm only at life-threatening levels. UL Listed CO detectors manufactured after October of 1995 are required to have information on product packaging that clearly states the sensitivity level of the detector.
