Protect Your Family from Invisible Home Hazards with the Kidde Worry-Free Carbon Monoxide Alarm {Giveaway}

Kidde logo
While we've taken plenty of precautions around here to keep our home safe from hazards such as drafty windows, dirty carpets or foods that have sat long past their expiration date in the back of the fridge, I know full well that doesn't mean that we can rest easy.

After all, sometimes the things you can't see in your home can be the most hazardous: Germs, dust mites, mold, and more.

But, one of the most dangerous things you can't see in your home is carbon monoxide (CO), an odorless, colorless, tasteless gas which can be deadly within minutes. CO is the leading cause of unintentional poisoning deaths in the U.S. and the only safe way to detect it is with a working CO alarm.

However, according to the U.S. Census, while 75% of all homes have a potential source of carbon monoxide – like a water heater, fireplace, furnace, stove, clothes dryer, space heater, generator or any other fuel-burning appliance – only half of U.S. homes have a working CO alarm.

Fortunately, this spring Kidde released its Worry-Free Carbon Monoxide Alarm, the first and only UL-listed CO alarm proven to provide up to 10 years of protection – up to twice the lifespan of other available alarms.

LCD CO Alarm

As with Kidde's other convenient, high quality Worry-Free products, this new CO alarm contains a sealed-in lithium battery that powers the alarm for a decade, eliminating annoying low-battery chirps while helping to keep your loved ones safe.

As well as the convenience of not worrying about changing the batteries or if they have been removed, the Worry-Free CO Alarms actually save you time and money by not having to purchase new batteries to continuously replace them.

Considering that even low levels of this toxic gas may cause headaches, dizziness, disorientation, nausea and fatigue (according to the EPA), doesn't it just make sense to know that your home is safe from this invisible hazard for 10 full years?

carbon monoxide dangers

The only safe way to know if carbon monoxide is present is to install carbon monoxide detectors (alarms) on every level of your home and in sleeping areas. Kidde has been making CO alarms with electrochemical sensing technology for years and their newest Worry-Free Alarm is yet another step in the right direction for protecting families everywhere.

For 90 years, industry leaders, the military, airlines, and firefighters have relied on Kidde to deliver superior fire protection. Consumers will find the same advanced technology in Kidde's smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, fire extinguishers, and other life-safety products. Make your home and family safe today.

Available now at select home improvement stores and other retailers, more information about this and all of Kidde's Worry-Free Alarms can be found by visiting WorryFreeAlarm.com and connecting with Kidde on Facebook and Twitter.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will be prepared to safely update their home as well, because...

One lucky person will win a Kidde Worry-Free Carbon Monoxide Alarm!

A big thank you to Kidde for providing product and compensation for me as well as a Worry-Free CO Alarm for one lucky giveaway winner. The opinions shared are my own and honest and if you really need to see more, click here to see how I roll.

Deb said...

I learned that this gas will be heavier than air, so it should first be in the basement.. where indeed, all of our utilities and equipment is located.
But I would also have one near the bedrooms too!!
