Get Ahead of Demand

Schedule CO detector audits and make replacements work for you in 2019. Seven years ago, states began rolling out new CO legislation requiring sealed batteries. Those batteries are set to last seven years and their replacement beeps are scheduled to sound. Stock the right replacement CO detectors for your multifamily property and its residents. Get ahead of those replacement beeps.

Replacement CO Detectors

When will the beeps start?

Each state is different. Every property is different. Laws are adopted at different times. Use our CO replacement calendar to gauge your properties' needs. Start audits as soon as possible to be fully stocked before the beeps begin.
