Each year, hundreds of people in the United States die from carbon monoxide poisoning. As a result, health officials recommend using carbon monoxide sensors. The following report takes a closer look at the global carbon monoxide sensors market.

Carbon monoxide poisoning is responsible for over 400 accidental deaths each year in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A type of colorless and odorless gas, carbon monoxide is toxic to humans as well as animals. While short-term exposure to small amounts generally won't cause any noticeable harm, long-term exposure to high concentrations can prove fatal. Therefore, many states in the United States have laws requiring the use of carbon monoxide detectors in homes and/or businesses.

In 2009, for example, the state of Georgia passed a law requiring the use of carbon monoxide detectors in all one- and two-family homes. The purpose of this law is to protect against carbon monoxide poisoning. With a carbon monoxide sensor installed, residences will know if and when their home becomes filled with carbon monoxide. And in the event of a carbon monoxide leak or buildup, residences can exit their home so that they aren't exposed to this toxic gas.
So, how do carbon monoxide sensors work exactly? They work like smoke alarms by triggering a loud siren or buzz in response to carbon monoxide. Although they are available in several types and styles, most feature electrodes in a liquid chemical solution. When carbon monoxide builds up in the surrounding environment, the chemical solution changes, thereby triggering the electrodes, followed by the alarm.
Carbon monoxide sensors won't prevent this toxic gas from accumulating. They will, however, help residences minimize exposure to carbon monoxide gas. If a carbon monoxide sensor goes off, residences can exist the home, thereby reducing the risk of potentially harmful or even fatal exposure levels. As a result, carbon monoxide sensors are an essential safety tool that can literally save lives.
