About Worry-Free CO Alarms
“Worry-Free alarms offer a variety of benefits to the millions of Americans who rely on continuous hard-wire or battery powered smoke and carbon monoxide detection in their homes. The battery powered alarms contain a sealed, long-life lithium battery lasting 10 years (the life of the alarm), meaning they are always on. The AC hard-wire powered alarms contain a 10-year sealed lithium battery backup, meaning they are always on – even during power outages when batteries can drain quickly. The Worry-Free CO alarms are the first and only UL-listed carbon monoxide alarms proven to provide a decade of protection- up to twice the lifespan in other available alarms.”
My children’s pediatrician has a list of questions that he always asks during their regular checkups, one of them being “do you have a carbon monoxide detector in your home?” There is a reason he asks this routinely and it’s because many people don’t in fact have one installed in their home. This is such a simple must have item to install in your home, something that could potentially save the lives of your entire family. There is not a single way a person could detect a carbon monoxide leak in their home without an alarm because it does not contains an odor. You can not see it… you can not hear it! I carbon monoxide leak could happen to anyone and it frightens me to think that so many people live without an alarm in their home.
In the home that we lived in previously to this one, we rented and the maintenance crew would come in every few months to change the batteries in out detectors. Even with the batteries being changed routinely, I was awaken one night because the alarm was going off. Turns out the battery had corroded which cause it to set off the alarm. Sometimes the batteries would even start to go in between those few months and I would have to listen to the obnoxious beeping until they could come and replace them. It was such a pain trying to keep up with those alarms and making sure the batteries weren’t effecting them in any way.
I was so excited after reading about the the fantastic Kidde Worry-Free Co Alarm and could not wait to install one in my home. Once I had mine in hand and ready to install, I soon realized that I just needed to shut the back of the alarm and it was ready to go. No batteries needed to be installed because it came with a sealed 10 year battery that was already inside of it. I hung it up in the perfect spot, which is our main living area and in between our bedroom and the kid’s rooms. The alarm just hangs discretely on my wall, protecting my family and I don’t have to do a single thing to ensure that it works properly. The life of this alarm (including the battery) is ten years… yes you read the correctly… ten years! That means for ten years you will never have to replace a battery and we all know how expensive those things are. Can you believe there is something out there that is so incredibly simply to install and maintain? This is certainly something that every person should consider if they don’t currently have one in their home. The Worry-Free CO Alarm is extremely affordable if you factor in all of the money you will save not having to purchase batteries for ten years. I highly recommend that you visit the Kidde website today and take the next steps towards making your home safe for your family if you haven’t already.
