Differences between Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are two different devices, but both are necessary to living in a healthy, happy home. Here’s the difference between both types of detectors:
- Smoke Detectors are devices that have sensors inside which detect smoke in the air. There are two main types of smoke detectors: ionized and optical. Optical detectors are often better at differentiating between smoke from a fire and smoke produced from burnt food. Ideally, multiple smoke detectors should be placed around your whole house to ensure your and your family’s safety.
- Carbon Monoxide Detectors are devices that have sensors inside which detect carbon monoxide, or CO. Carbon monoxide is odorless, tasteless, and completely invisible, meaning that it’s impossible to know whether or not there is an excess of CO in your home. A carbon monoxide detector is the only sure way of protecting your home and family from CO poisoning.
What’s a CO2 Detector?
A carbon monoxide detector and a CO2 detector are two different things, though they are often confused as being one and the same. CO2 detectors are used to detect carbon dioxide emissions directly associated with construction, breweries, agriculture, machine shops, and biofuel production, where large amounts of CO2 can pose a potentially deadly threat. Generally, homes and residential areas don’t need to worry much about poisonous levels of CO2 in confined areas.
