The digital display screen provides carbon monoxide PPM (parts per million) levels and displays 'GAS' during an occurrence. Peak CO levels are recorded with the memory button and (3) LED colors display the status of the alarm, power, CO and gas in your home. The 9-volt alkaline battery (included) continues protection in the event of a power outage.

Q: WHAT LEVELS (PPM) OF CARBON MONOXIDE CAUSE AN ALARM?
A: Carbon monoxide alarms are designed to alarm before the average healthy adult feels symptoms. Since you cannot see or smell CO, never assume it's not present. Underwriters Laboratories Inc. Standard UL2034 requires residential CO alarms to sound when exposure times and exposure levels of CO in the chart below. CO alarm levels are measured in parts per million (ppm) of CO over time (in minutes). The UL2034 Required Alarm Points are:
  • If the Alarm is exposed to 400 ppm of CO, it must alarm between 4 and 15 minutes.
  • If the Alarm is exposed to 150 ppm of CO, it must alarm between 10 and 50 minutes.
  • If the Alarm is exposed to 70 ppm of CO, it must alarm between 60 and 240 minutes.

Q: IS CARBON MONOXIDE HEAVIER THAN AIR?
A: Carbon monoxide is not heavier than air. A carbon monoxide alarm should be installed in a location where the alarm will stay clean, and out of the way of children or pets. Refer to the user's manual for specific installation requirements.

Q: WHERE SHOULD I INSTALL MY CARBON MONOXIDE ALARMS?
A: It is very important to install a carbon monoxide alarm outside each separate sleeping area, and for maximum protection, install one in every bedroom. Many states now require installation of a carbon monoxide alarm inside each bedroom. For added protection, placement of an additional carbon monoxide alarm at least 15-20 feet away from the furnace or fuel burning heat sources is recommended. Install carbon monoxide alarms a minimum of 10 feet from sources of humidity like bathrooms and showers. In multiple-story dwellings, install one carbon monoxide alarm on every level. If you have a basement, install a carbon monoxide alarm at the top of the basement stairs, and in each separate sleeping area.

Q: WHAT AREAS SHOULD I AVOID INSTALLATION OF A CARBON MONOXIDE ALARM?
A: Do not install carbon monoxide alarms in garages, kitchens, furnace rooms, or in any extremely dusty, dirty, humid, or greasy areas. Do not install alarms in direct sunlight, or areas subjected to temperature extremes. These areas include unconditioned crawl spaces, unfinished attics, un-insulated or poorly insulated ceilings, and porches. Carbon monoxide alarms should not be installed in outlets covered by curtains, heavy furniture or other obstructions. Do not install in turbulent air-near ceiling fans, heat vents, air conditioners, fresh air returns, or open windows. Blowing air may prevent carbon monoxide from reaching the CO sensors.

Great peace of mind

Installed near our living room where the gas fireplace is. You just never know when things could happen, it's good to know that this unit is there to alert us.

Simplicity is the word!

It couldn't be easier to be protected from the deadly airborne killers, carbon monoxide and natural gas. Simply plug it into a wall socket, set an expiration date on your iPhone and your good to go. Just forget about it!

It is hard to test a Carbon Monoxide and Natural Gas monitor, but the Unit quality appears to be high and the packaging was very minimal.
