DeNova Detect May Save You up to 37% When Compared to Natural Gas Plug-in Alarms

Developing the first natural gas alarm in 1964, DeNova Detect has established itself as the industry leader in natural gas sensing technology. In previous posts, we've discussed how DeNova Natural Gas Detectors offer the quickest available sensing time on the market. More precisely, a Denova Natural Gas Alarm implements a sensor that's capable of achieving a 10% Lower Explosive Limit (LEL). Other natural gas alarms are only capable of achieving a 25% LEL. A quicker response time (an average of 11 minutes faster*) greatly expands your window of time in safely escaping a potentially dangerous scenario.

What about the price though? On the surface, a DeNova Natural Gas Detector may appear more expensive than its counterparts. Initially, that's a true statement. However there are other factors to consider here. Over the six year lifespan of a DeNova Natural Gas Alarm, the detector';s battery will never need to be replaced. A plug-in natural gas alarm will have you purchasing replacement batteries every year to keep it fully functional. While that may not seem like much, it's not the biggest hindrance here. The real culprit is the average electricity cost. As their name implies, plug-in natural gas alarms have to be plugged into an electrical outlet. The electricity needed to power these plug-in detectors naturally comes at a price. It varies by model, but you're generally looking at anywhere between $51-$87 for the duration of the detector.

We should always strive to create the safest environment for ourselves and family. This means you may want to consider multiple natural gas alarms. Additional plug-in natural gas alarms bring this price up even further. Say you implement three plug-in natural gas alarms in your home. You're looking at additional battery purchases and electricity costs. Having three plug-in detectors will set you back anywhere between $153 to $261 during their operation.  It's a pretty significant leap that's ignored entirely by DeNova Natural Gas Detectors. How? DeNova Natural Gas Alarms aren't plug-in. Not only does this allow for a tremendous reduction in savings, it allows for optimal installation that isn't limited by an outlet's placement.
