Carbon monoxide is a gas that is odorless, colorless, and tasteless so having a carbon monoxide detector in your home is essential to detecting a leak, which could be fatal. CO detectors can be battery powered or powered by a hardline. Follow official recommendations for how many your home needs and their placement. Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors have also been combined to provide greater protection. There are versions that beep and others that speak warnings. Advanced options include digital display screens and Bluetooth connections for easy monitoring.
