System-Monitored Gas Detectors Provide the Highest Level of Protection Against Silent Killers
Ideally, natural gas burns in an appliance completely and efficiently, mixing with the oxygen in the air to produce harmless carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapor. But if conditions aren’t right, the natural gas won’t combust completely, giving off deadly fumes of carbon monoxide (CO).
There are also dire consequences should there be a natural gas leak where a pocket of combustible fumes collects in concentrated form. Should an appliance, such as a water heater, generate a spark when kicking on, this could be ample ignition to cause an explosion.
These examples show the importance of having a monitored gas detection system to guard against tragedy:
