It’s time for us to turn the clocks back. We begin to stay indoors with our windows closed and fireplaces burning. It is also time to change the batteries in our smoke detectors, and to make sure we have functioning carbon monoxide detectors located within 15 feet of our bedrooms. Monoxide detectors are required by Illinois State Law since January 2009. Many people are still not aware of this legislation to keep us safe. We recommend monoxide detectors that have a digital display like the Nighthawk brand that minimizes false readings by resampling the air every two minutes. This protects your family from severe injury by providing accurate readings, and protects the community by minimizing false positives which require response by your local fire protection district. Save the fire department the hassle by purchasing a good monoxide detector. The life you save may be your own. The Kiddie Nighthawk brand is available through our office or request one on-line at appliancerepairchicagoil.org at the Contact Us link.
