Frequently Asked Questions
When is it time to replace an alarm?
The natural gas alarm should be replaced when the End-of-Service-Life (or EOL) Alert activates on your device. When this happens, the Trouble (Yellow) LED on the device will begin to blink twice every 10 seconds, and the audible alert will beep twice and say "Please replace detector" once every minute. This will occur approximately 6 years (model: ML-310ES) or 7 years (model: 807NAS) after device installation.
Will I have to perform ongoing maintenance for the ML-310ES?
The ML-310ES natural gas alarm is designed for low maintenance. However, regular inspections and testing are recommended to ensure proper functionality. It is advisable to follow the manufacturer's guidelines regarding maintenance intervals and procedures to keep the alarm in optimal working condition.
How loud is the gas leak alarm on the ML-310ES? Will I hear it if I’m not in the same room?
The ML-310ES natural gas alarm is designed to produce a loud alarm sound to alert you of a gas leak. The specific decibel level may vary, but it is typically set at a level that can be heard from different areas of a typical household, including adjacent rooms or areas in close proximity. However, the audibility may be affected by factors such as distance and obstacles. It is recommended to place the alarm strategically for maximum effectiveness.
Can the ML-310ES detect other gasses like smoke, fire, and carbon monoxide (CO)?
The ML-310ES Denova Detect natural gas alarm is specifically designed to detect natural gas leaks. It is not capable of detecting other gasses like smoke, fire, or carbon monoxide (CO). For comprehensive safety, it is recommended to have separate detectors specifically designed for these hazards installed in appropriate areas of your property.
Is the ML-310ES compliant with safety standards and regulations?
Yes, the ML-310ES natural gas alarms pass specific requirements, including detection sensitivity, response time, and accuracy to make them compliant with the UL 1484 standard. UL 1484 is a standard for residential gas detectors. It outlines requirements for electrically operated gas detectors used to detect flammable gases such as propane and natural gas in residential homes.
Is the ML-310ES sensitive enough to detect low levels of natural gas? What is the sensitivity of the ML-310ES?
The ML-310ES natural gas alarm is typically engineered to be highly sensitive to low levels of natural gas. Yes, the ML-310ES natural gas alarms are manufactured to a 10% LEL gas alarm threshold, alerting you to an emergency much sooner than traditional technologies that are designed to alarm at 25% LEL.
Is the ML-310ES natural gas alarm a safe choice for first-time property owners?
Yes, the ML-310ES natural gas alarm is a suitable choice for first-time property owners. The natural gas alarm's user-friendly design and reliable gas leak detection capabilities make it an effective safety measure. It provides peace of mind by alerting occupants to potential gas leaks, ensuring the safety of the property and its occupants.
Can the ML-310ES be easily installed and integrated into existing property management systems?
The ML-310ES natural gas alarm is designed for an easy, seamless installation. The alarm should be installed between 3 and 10 feet away from a gas appliance and no more than 12 inches from the ceiling. Integration into existing property management systems may vary depending on the specific system in use.
How can the ML-310ES assist property managers in complying with gas safety regulations and inspections?
The ML-310ES natural gas alarm is a crucial tool for property managers to ensure compliance with gas safety regulations and inspections. By promptly detecting gas leaks, the DeNova Detect residential natural gas alarms help mitigate potential risks and demonstrate proactive measures to maintain a safe environment. Property managers can utilize the ML-310ES natural gas alarm as part of their comprehensive gas leak detection system, which may include regular inspections, maintenance, and adherence to local safety regulations.
