3 Gadgets to Add to Your Home to Keep Your Family Safe and Healthy
Your home is your haven. It's the place where you eat, sleep, work, play and relax. However, any home is only a good one if it keeps its occupants safe and secure, and that doesn't happen on its own. You have to purchase the right equipment to protect you, your family and your possessions. To that end, here are three systems and detectors you need in your home to keep your family safe.
Water Filtration SystemEveryone knows that water is necessary to live. But, did you know that there are many contaminants in your water system? This is why a water filtration system is so necessary. According to All Elite Water, water filtration systems have been shown to reduce 99 percent of contaminants. Thankfully, you don't need to invest thousands of dollars to replace your pipes. Instead, purchase water filters for your sink or your drinking water, and make sure to test your water periodically for lead and other common household chemicals.
Carbon Monoxide DetectorCarbon monoxide is a silent, odorless, tasteless killer. According to the Texas Poison Center Network, it kills about 400 people in the U.S. every year and sickens thousands more. What is the most frustrating part about these deaths is that they are so easily preventable. All you have to do is purchase a carbon monoxide detector and install one in your house, just like you would a smoke detector. You don't even have to monitor the system on a regular basis. A good one will beep if it detects a problem. In the event that there is too much carbon monoxide in your house, evacuate and call the police. This simple alarm usually costs no more than $50 and can save your life.
Home Security SystemHome security systems are alarms that prevent unauthorized access to the home. According to Reisinger Insurance, burglars will typically check a house to see if it has a home security system before breaking in, and they avoid ones that do have such a system. The relatively inexpensive preventative measure of getting a home security system can keep your home secure and protect your family and your possessions.
What is most compelling about many of these systems is just how cheap they are when compared to the cost of the losses they prevent. Water filtration, carbon monoxide detectors, and home security systems can help protect your possessions and even save lives, and that peace of mind comes at an affordable cost.
