In a house during winter, where the fire is lit in the house, heaters are on, and windows closed, there are high chances of the house losing oxygen at a faster rate. It is advisable to install carbon monoxide detectors and smoke detectors.
In an industrial setting, detectors have loud sounds of about 85 decibels to even wake someone asleep.
A smoke detector beeps three times in a repeating pattern, and a carbon monoxide detector beeps four times in a repeating pattern.
Alarm Mode: In the event the alarm detects smoke, it will beep 3 times every 1.5 seconds as its LED flashes red. As the alarm is beeping, the escape light lights up to guide you to safety
When a smoke detector has detector the presence of smoke in the room, it sounds an alarm. A standard smoke detector has been set such that it produces loud sounds which a person who is asleep can hear.
In case of these emergencies, here are the steps to take.
Alarm LED: High carbon monoxide concentration in a house of 30 to 999ppm within a certain time is high for a particular space. In a CO detector, a blue backlight lights up, followed by the red LED flash 4 times at intervals of 5.8 seconds. After about 4 minutes, the red LED flashes 4 times in a minute.
Alarm Sound: It beeps 4 times every 5.8 seconds and after 4 minutes, it beeps 4 times in a minute.
Unit Status: During this period, it shows that the concentration of carbon monoxide detected is harmful.
When a carbon monoxide detector detects CO in the house, the alarm beeps 4 times to alert everyone in the building. Do this when you hear the alarm
If your alarms beep again within 24 hours, follow steps 1-3 and call the technician to find the source of CO and inspect if the equipment is working properly.
Alarms are always serious, and never underestimate them. There should be protocols in every house in case an alarm goes off. Although sometimes factors like electric disturbances, dust, or insects can cause an alarm, that should not be a reason to take them lightly.
