A carbon monoxide detector can be used to detect carbon monoxide in your home. Carbon monoxide is a gas that can be poisounous to both your pets and humans. As such, you want to ensure that you are able to detect this gas in your home if it is present before any gets ill or passes away from it. Carbon monoxide is often caused the silent killer because it is hard to detect.

If you do not yet have carbon monoxide detectors in your home, you may find yourself wondering where you can buy some. Here are a few of the places that you can pick these detectors up so you can then install them in your home.

Retail Stores

One of the best places to pick up carbon monoxide detectors for your home is at retail stores. Retail stores include stores such as:

  • Target
  • Wal-Mart
  • Costco
  • Home Depot
  • Lowes

They all carry carbon monoxide detectors for your home. When you visit a retail store, you are able to look at the carbon monoxide detector, hold it and easily compare the different types and styles. Some people prefer seeing exactly what they are buying, and if you are one of these people, buying in one of these stores may be beneficial to you. 

Online Retailers

Another place you can buy carbon monoxide detectors is through an online retailer. This includes any retail store that has a website, and other online only entities, such as Amazon. When you buy online, you are able to compare the price of an item to other stores quickly and easily, helping you to get the best possible deal. However, you are not able to see the item, hold the item or receive the item that day. But if you hate driving, don’t have a way to easily get to stores, or want to compare prices, buying from online retailers may be a great choice for you. 

Security System Monitoring Companies

The last place to pick up a carbon monoxide detector, and the lesser known option, is through security system monitoring companies. If you already own a security system, or are thinking about having one installed, you can purchase carbon monoxide detectors through your security system monitoring company and have them connected to your security system. Just like a smoke detector, the monitoring company can monitor the alarm and if it goes off, send help to your home. This offers another layer of protection in keeping your home safe. 

It is estimated that more than 150 people in the United States die annually as the result of carbon monoxide poisoning.

A carbon monoxide detector is another item in your home that can help to keep your home and family safe. If you are looking to keep your home and family as safe as possible, a home monitoring system is advised. It helps to protect your home against unwanted break-ins, allows you to monitor your children when you are not there and can monitor your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors for alarms that can indicate something is wrong in the home.
