The New Cosmos Methane Gas Detector should be installed in all rooms where a gas leak may occur or a gas appliance is located. Examples are a kitchen (gas leaks from gas ovens and cook tops), laundry (gas leaks from a gas clothes dryer), and furnace area (gas leaks from furnace burners or boilers). However, do not install closer than 10 feet (3 meters) from gas appliance. It is possible that gas leaks may migrate along pipes so consideration should be given to place gas detectors in multiple rooms. Gas detectors should be located between 6 to 12 inches (0.15 to 0.3 meters) from the ceiling.

New Cosmos USA Natural Gas Alarm protects against the threat of natural gas (or methane) hazard. This alarm is suitable for houses, apartments and manufactured housing. New Cosmos 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. This alarm features superior technology to virtually eliminate nuisance alarms. In addition to an 85dB alarm warning sound, this alarm also provides a voice warning "Danger - Gas leak explosion risk - evacuate, then call 911".
The contemporary design is fast and easy to install with no wiring required. This alarm is ETL tested and listed to UL1484 Standards. Gas detectors should be installed in all rooms where a gas leak may occur, or a gas appliance is located. Examples are a kitchen, laundry, and furnace area. The New Cosmos USA ML-310 Natural Gas Alarm comes with a 5-year limited warranty.
Gas detectors should be installed in all rooms where a gas leak may occur or a gas appliance is located. Examples are a kitchen (gas leaks from gas ovens and cook tops), laundry (gas leaks from a gas clothes dryer), and furnace area (gas leaks from furnace burners or boilers). However, do not install closer than 10 feet (3 meters) from gas appliance to avoid false readings. It is possible that gas leaks may migrate along pipes so consideration should be given to place gas detectors in multiple rooms. Gas detectors should be located between 6 to 12 inches (0.15 to 0.3 meters) from the ceiling. Air movement around the detector must not be impeded by items hanging from the ceiling or near the ceiling such as curtains, drapes, ceiling fans. The detector should not be installed in the peak of a cathedral ceiling.
If at any time your natural gas detector's alarm sounds or if you ever smell or hear a natural gas leak:
In the event of a gas leak, you may smell natural gas before the natural gas detector's alarm is activated. Whether or not the unit's alarm is sounding, if you smell gas, act fast. Report the leak once you are safely outside.
Once you have determined the proper location for your detector, follow these steps to activate the device:
The ML-310 detector is easily wall mounted with only one screw, no bracket necessary. Tools you will need: Drill with 3/16" or 5mm drill bit, Phillips head screwdriver & hammer.
The natural gas detector was designed to be as low maintenance as possible. If the unit's alarm is never activated, the battery inside the natural gas detector should last for approximately five years. If the unit's alarm is activated, the battery will last for less than five years. If the unit begins to sound its low battery signal - a single intermittent chirp - contact New Cosmos Electric Co. at 1-847-749-3064 to obtain a replacement battery; these batteries are not available in stores.
The manufacturer recommends testing the unit at least once a week and cleaning the unit once a month by gently vacuuming the outside of the unit; do not use water, cleaning, and maintenance.
The natural gas detector is a safety device that monitors the air in the area where the unit is installed in your home. If the unit detects a potential natural gas leak in that area, it will beep loudly (similar to a smoke detector) and provide the following audible alarm: "Danger. Gas-leak explosion risk. Evacuate, then call 911."
Yes. Since the unit is powered by an internal battery, the natural gas detector should continue to function during a power outage.
No, the natural gas detector will only detect the presence of natural gas in the area where the unit is installed. It will not detect fire, heat, smoke or the presence of any other gases, including carbon monoxide (CO).
No, the natural gas detector will only monitor the air in the area where the unit is installed. Natural gas leaks could be present in other areas and/or on other floors of your home or building without reaching the natural gas detector. As such, the unit's alarm may not sound in the event of a natural gas leak in a remote part of your home or building. Doors or the obstructions may also affect the rate at which natural gas reaches the natural gas detector. You should install separate gas detectors as needed in other areas of your home where natural gas appliances are used.
No, the natural gas detector's alarm may not be heard in all rooms or situations. Since the natural gas detector is installed in a limited area of your home or building - such as the kitchen, for example - people sleeping or awake in other rooms or on other floors may not hear the unit's alarm in the event of a natural gas leak. People may not hear the alarm if the sound is at a distance and/or blocked by closed doors and/or other obstructions. Noise from traffic, stereos, radios, televisions, air conditioners, appliances, or other sources may also prevent people from hearing the unit. The unit's alarm is not intended for people who are hearing impaired.
