Carbon Monoxide detector

Posted by Mike on February 17th, 2003 09:50 PM

Again, thanks for the help on my questions regarding all of my ceiling and drywall repairs.

I recently installed non-vented gas logs in my fireplace. While doing all of my drywall work, I'm replacing my smoke detector and planning to add a carbon monoxide detector.

Where is the best place to add this? I went to the local home improvement warehouse, and they had one that plugs into a wall socket and has a digital readout. They also have one that mounts on the wall.

My question is this: Where is the best place to mount a carbon monoxide sensor? After seeing the ceiling mount units, I would think I would want to place them on the roof or on a wall near the top of the ceiling. But the one that plugs into the wall outlet confuses me. Are concentrations higher on the floor?

I'm at a point where I can easily add an AC powered unit. The premium model plugs into a wall socket and has digital readout. Should these units be installed near the top of the wall or near the floor?

Thanks for your help.
