Reduce fire and gas explosions risks from gas fumes igniting by a spark. Protect each propane or natural gas using appliance with a UL 1484 listed HS80501 combustible gas detector by Family Safety Products. This is a case of 12 units of the Safety Siren Pro 3 Combustible Gas Monitor and Gas Alarm. Use with a standard 2 prong or 3 prong electrical outlet. Outlet screw thru safety tab makes unit hard to pull out. Made in USA.
A vital home safety product if you heat or cook with bottled propane gas or natural gas. Propane safety requires mounting a propane gas detector near the floor where heavier propane gas collects. LP gas or propane furnaces in basements are more dangerous than natural gas because fumes collect near pilot lights at floor levels. Note: Carbon monoxide alarms will not detect a raw gas leak: the sensor in a carbon monoxide gas monitor and alarm is designed only to detect CO gas.
Why do I need a combustible gas detector/gas alarm? See 5 Reasons Below Product Information.

Note: Add an electrical outlet if needed to install the Safety Siren combustible gas alarm correctly. Mount 4 to 20 inches above the floor for propane leak protection . Mount within 6 inches of the ceiling or on the ceiling at least 12 inches from a wall for natural gas leak protection .
Reasons to Buy, Install and Regularly Test A Combustible Gas Alarm:
You Cannot Always Smell a Gas Leak . No matter how good your nose is, you may not be in the right place at the right time to notice a natural gas or propane leak.
Carbon monoxide alarms give NO protection against combustible gas leaks. Carbon monoxide sensors detect only carbon monoxide, not raw fuel.
It does not take striking a match to cause a gas explosion or fire. Turning off a light, setting a security alarm or closing a door spark a gas explosion or fire. Natural gas leaking from a basement furnace can leak upstairs through hollow walls.
Gas appliances are not the only source of a gas leak . Gas can leak into homes via sump pits, inbound water lines or a natural gas well under your home.
Each gas appliance is a potential source of a gas leak. Each gas appliance needs its own gas detector. Natural gas and propane gas pool above or below gas water heaters, gas clothes dryers, gas ranges, gas furnaces, etc.
