Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) July 13, 2012
Thomas Edison Electric has recently announced that they are now providing services to help keep their customers informed of the importance of installing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in their homes. Upon hiring the company, all potential customers who come to them considering to install a new smoke or carbon monoxide detector, will also receive abundant advice on how they should safely maintain their smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
“There is no doubt that smoke detectors will keep your family safe in a fire, but only if you have enough of them and they are in good working order,” a spokesperson for the company recently noted. The company also points out that detection is the key to avoiding carbon monoxide poisoning and home fires, “Carbon monoxide is often found in household items including gas stoves, dryers, water heaters, and furnaces. Keep in mind that these are many appliances that parents often use, and children can easily have access to within the home. It is important to keep an eye on these items and make sure they are turned off properly when not in use.”
To prevent carbon monoxide and fire outbreaks, smoke detectors can keep a family safe, as long as they are in multiple locations within the house, and are checked every couple months to make sure they still work. Thomas Edison Electric provides statistics on their website about the danger of carbon monoxide, which is a great reason to visit their site. The Journal of the American Medical Association reports that 2,100 people die from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning in the United States each year. To combat this problem, Thomas Edison Electric can install high quality carbon monoxide detectors in a family’s home, when there is any sign of health risk.
