Bacon Plumbing Heating Air Electric carries the best carbon monoxide and smoke detectors in Rockwall, TX. Carbon monoxide is often referred to as a “silent killer,” because you can’t see, smell, or taste it. When your gas furnace, stove, or fireplace leaks this gas, your family may begin to struggle with nausea, fatigue, headaches, and dizziness. Carbon monoxide causes harm by preventing the blood in your body from carrying oxygen to your tissues and organs.
Rely on our experienced team to protect your household by installing your home’s vital CO and smoke detectors today.
"I was very impressed with the responsiveness of this company! I called and within an hour Caleb was assessing the situation in my yard. He was quite the professional and made me feel like he knew what he was doing. He gave me my options and he didn't pressure me to make any quick decisions. He also communicated very well what I could expect with every step of the repair. Quick and timely service! Great job Bacon Plumbing and Caleb!" - Danielle C.
When determining where to place your detectors, it’s important to remember that carbon monoxide is typically lighter than air. It also rises with the warm air coming from your heating system or oven. You should place CO detectors at least five feet off the ground to ensure correct readings. You can also place them on your ceiling in key rooms, like your kitchen or living room. You’ll need one carbon monoxide detector outside of every bedroom or sleeping area. Don’t forget to install one in your attached garage and about 10 feet from the garage door. Avoid putting your detector too close to your fireplace or furnace as these systems constantly release trace amounts of carbon monoxide that could trigger a false alarm.
Ensuring your detectors are in optimal condition can be difficult without professional assistance. You need to ensure they’re not within reach of any children or pets. Just like with your fire alarm, you should check the batteries monthly. Keep them out of your bathroom and away from any windows or sinks where excess humidity can impact their readings.
Residences often opt for battery-charged or plug-in devices. You can place a battery-powered unit anywhere from your counter to on top of the fridge. They have long lifespans and work best when situated higher in the room. Plug-in devices offer the ideal convenience, but they’re often too low to provide accurate readings. Guarantee the best results with your carbon monoxide detectors by working with our experienced team today. We carry high-quality options that are long-lasting and effective. Our electricians also have the training and certifications to expertly evaluate your home and find the perfect installation locations.

You’ll also need smoke detectors to alert you to any potential fires in the home. A state-of-the-art fire detection system will protect both your family and your belongings from harm. Place your smoke detectors inside each bedroom and on every level of the home from the attic to the basement. They work well at the top of staircases to catch the smoke as it’s rising. Along with having the option for a hardwire installation, you can also choose a 2-in-1 carbon monoxide and smoke detector system for complete security.
