  1. LintAlert Dryer Vent Safety AlarmSafety Products and Accessories at Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning

Did you know that lint build-up in your dryer exhaust pipe can actually cause a fire in your home? In the early 2000’s, approximately $100 million of damage, 15,000 fires and 15 deaths in homes occurred just by clothes dryers alone, according to the U.S. Department of Fire. With that being said, a LintAlert dryer vent safety alarm will monitor and alert you once your dryer exhaust system is clogged. How it works is it monitors the air pressure in the dryer’s transition hose. Once it reaches a cautious level, an alarm will be set off to let you know that your dryer should be inspected.

  1. Honeywell Carbon Monoxide Detector

Safety Products and Accessories at Bob’s Heating & Air ConditioningCarbon Monoxide is a toxic gas that is the prominent cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America.  This gas can be released from heating systems, engine powered tools, running cars and also charcoal grills- all items that are found in common households. The Honeywell Carbon Monoxide Detector (also known as the Honeywell C8600A 1000) detects carbon monoxide levels and an alarm will sound before dangerous levels of the gas are present in your home. The best feature of this detector is once an alarm is received and no one responds to a follow-up phone call, medical responders will be dispatched to the property to make sure you and your family are safe.
