Why is a CO Alarm and CO Monitor Important to Your Workplace in Nashville, Knoxville, Clarksville, Cookeville, and Across Tennessee?

At A&W Compressor, the safety of our customers is our top priority, which is why we urge facilities in Tennessee that utilize compressed air systems and produce CO as a byproduct to install a CO monitor with a CO alarm in their workshop or industrial facility. A CO monitor and CO alarm are vital because CO, or carbon monoxide, is odorless – and fatal to human beings. CO exposure can be life threatening after one immense exposure or can become life threatening after small amounts of exposure over a period of time.

With more than 25 years of experience in the compressor industry, our team can ensure you have the most responsive and accurate CO monitoring device for your needs. We urge you to consult with one of our compressed air specialists if you don’t currently have a CO alarm in your workplace, or if your current CO monitor and alarm are more than five years old. A monitor that is out of date may have diminished effectiveness and could potentially fail to detect rising CO levels.

Your facility may need to buy or replace a CO alarm system if you or your employees are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Chest pain
  • Irritability

At A&W, we carry an extensive selection of compressor accessories, and we have wall-mounted and portable monitors to suit any small business or industrial operation.
