Early gas leak warnings can save lives and protect property. DeNova Detect Wireless Alarms have been independently tested by the Gas Technical Institute (GTI) to ensure accuracy and effectiveness.
Why Utility Companies Choose Us:
- Provide cohesive wireless communication for easy remote monitoring
- Our alarms significantly lower the risk of gas explosions while minimizing utility company liability time.
In addition to warning local residents, DeNova Natural Gas Alarms will send a wireless signal to the utility company, so they are alerted to alarm functionality issues or gas levels as low as 10% LEL. Early detection will allow utility companies to monitor the situation and act quickly.
DeNova Natural Gas Alarms were featured in a 2018 pilot installation conducted by New York's Consolidated Edison (Con Edison) Utility. 9,000 DeNova Natural Gas Detectors were tested resulting in a 100% rate of alarm detection. This means that every gas detector was capable of identifying the presence of a gas leak during the duration of the testing period. The results were so conclusive that it led to Con Edison to committing a long term partnership with DeNova Detect.
Con Edison New York Gas Leak Detector Recommendations:
A slow gas leak may not create enough of a detectable scent, and even large leaks may not be detected by people with a weak sense of smell. Gas leak detectors offer peace of mind and help keep you and your neighbors safe by sounding an alarm before natural gas reaches an explosive range.
The best installation is within 12 inches of the ceiling in the same room with the natural gas pipe or appliance, such as a stove or gas-powered fireplace. For your protection, it's important to follow your device's installation instructions carefully.
Note that a carbon monoxide detector is not the same as a gas leak detector. While there are combination devices on the market, most carbon monoxide detectors do not detect combustible gasses. Be sure to check the label.
What to look for in a gas leak detector:
- Underwriter Laboratory Standard 1484 for Residential Gas Detectors certification
- A detection level ≤ 10% of the lower explosive level for natural gas
- Battery-powered with a lifetime battery included
