Why Our Homes Need Humidifiers and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon Monoxide Detectors installed by Pilot Mechanical Heating & Cooling.Dry air wreaks havoc on our sinuses and skin. When we close our windows and turn on the heat during the fall and winter months, we are drying out the air inside of our homes. Signs of dry air include fly-away hair, little static shocks when you touch things, or itchy skin. At Pilot Mechanical, we recommend that all of our customers purchase a humidifier to regulate the humidity levels in their homes. With a humidifier from us, you will significantly improve the air quality in your home, along with improving the health of your family for an overall more comfortable, risk-free environment.

Carbon monoxide is an odorless gas that can go unnoticed until it’s too late. This sneaky, toxic gas finds its way into your home through a wide range of seemingly harmless sources such as fuels not burning completely from natural gas or heating oil. Standard smoke detectors do not detect carbon monoxide. If you have older furnace or gas appliances, it’s important to have carbon monoxide detectors installed to protect your home from this silent killer. Our team will be able to determine what type of sensor your home needs that fits your budget.
