Sources of Natural Gas (Methane) At Home:
Potential sources are space heaters, gas fireplaces, gas furnaces, gas water heaters, gas ranges, Natural Gas (Methane) converted
Guard Against Natural Gas (Methane):
It is recommended to install a Natural Gas (Methane) Detector that is tested and listed to UL 1484 standard for Gas (Methane) Detector.
For total safety, it is recommended that a detector be placed in close proximity to any appliance utilizing Natural Gas
(Methane). At the very least, a detector should be placed on each level of a home.
S-TECH Natural Gas (Methane) detectors are calibrated to alarm at 10 ~ 20% of the Lowest Explosive Level (LEL) which is
well below the danger point. The alarm will sound instantly as soon as the 10% ~ 20% LEL is reached and will warn the
occupants of the presence of this explosive gas.
Installation of Natural Gas (Methane) Detector:
Unlike Carbon Monoxide Gas, Natural Gas (Methane) is lighter than air (1:0.56) at normal room temperature and the greatest
concentration tends to cloud immediately under the ceiling. The Natural Gas (Methane) detector should be installed no closer
than 6" from the ceiling and away from "dead air space" in corners.
