Nothing will keep your family safer at home than having your heating equipment properly installed and maintained. But it’s always smart to have safeguards in place – and few are more important than a carbon monoxide (CO) detector.
Installing carbon monoxide detectors is a must in any Southwest Connecticut home that uses gas-, wood-, heating oil- or other petroleum-burning appliances. That’s because combustion of any of these fuels releases a small amount of CO, which can build to dangerous or even lethal levels if your systems aren’t functioning properly.
Rural Fuels sells reliable and affordable CO detectors for use throughout your home. We’ll help you pick the right models for living space so you’ll know your family’s well-being is protected.
