Time Change Serves as Home Safety Reminder

After more than seven months you finally have it back, so you must be feeling pretty energetic. We’re talking about that hour of sleep you lost when you had to “spring” ahead in March. It was returned to you when we set our clocks back an hour as Daylight Saving Time came to an end.

What Builder’s Heating and Air Conditioning really wants you to remember is this is an important sign that the seasons are changing. It’s a good reminder to make sure any and all home safety systems are working correctly. Start by replacing the battery in your smoke detector and test it at the same time to make sure it’s working properly.

Barring some unusual weather, we are now in the heating season. Make sure you pay special attention to protecting yourself against the silent killer, carbon monoxide. If you have a CO detector, replace its battery as well. If you don’t have one, call Builder’s right now to talk about adding this vital protection to your home. Carbon monoxide poisoning kills hundreds of people every year. Don’t become a statistic. Builder’s has several home safety solutions:

  • Carbon monoxide alarm
    Even if you have a detector, we urge you step up to the next level of protection. Unlike CO detectors, this monitor continually measures the level of carbon monoxide starting at 7 parts-per-million (compared to 70 ppm for most detectors). This means you can monitor even small increases. This is important because new research shows long-term exposure to low-levels of CO can cause health problems. This continual monitoring alerts you to problems long before the carbon monoxide gas reaches lethal levels.
  • PHCC Pro Series Water Alarm
    This will minimize the risk of water damage in your home. The easy to use water alarm alerts you to the risk of water leaks before they cause major problems. The alarm will sound for up to three days, which is great for rental properties. Someone is likely to hear the alarm, even if the building isn’t occupied.

As always, Builder’s Heating and Air conditioning is here to serve all of the HVAC needs in your Denver, Co home.
