Carbon Monoxide Detectors – Does Your Rental Really Need Them?
Should you consider installing carbon monoxide detectors in your rental property even though your property may not really need them? The answer to this question is, yes.
Installing carbon monoxide detectors in your rental property is a SMART choice to make, because they could save your tenants life if carbon monoxide finds its way into the rental property.
A Smart Choice
Yes, some owners may not want to install carbon monoxide detectors if they don’t have gas heaters in their rental properties, but over the last 10 years, these detectors have saved the lives of countless people who had them installed in their rentals even when they were not needed.
Case in point: In 2011 a Tampa Fla woman’s life was saved thanks to her carbon monoxide detector when her neighbor left his car running in a garage adjacent to her rental unit.
Carbon Monoxide Can Kill In 15 Minutes
Did you know that carbon monoxide can take a life in as little as 15 minutes?
Every year over 400 people die from carbon monoxide poisoning so it makes sense to make sure that they are installed in your rental home or apartment for rent.
An Affordable Life Saver
Most carbon monoxide detectors only cost less than $30 and every San Diego property management company or landlord across Southern California will agree that this is a small price to pay for saving a life.
Sadly, one of the top reasons why carbon monoxide detectors stop working is due to their batteries dying out.
Thankfully, with a property management company serving you, you can have confidence that the detectors inside your rental properties will always work and have fresh batteries.
