I never said it was time to panic - I said turn the stove off until you figure out what's going on. That's just being prudent not panicked. In my humble opinion, any CO in the house is too much and it's not something I want to mess with at all. We have CO monitors so we can have early warning. Are we going to ignore them because it's too low a reading? How low is too low? Is any CO bad or just when it gets to certain level? Who can accurately define that level? It's not something I'm going to mess with because I've been told all CO is bad and I believe it! I don't think that "bad" is a gray area - it's all bad or its not - no in between. My question is will this "not so bad" situation get worse fast or slowly? It's not a chance I'd want to take.
Did you get a chance to look at some of the recent postings on CO? I don't have time today to find the posting but just last week or so someone wrote in with a CO leak on a new install. The guys of the forum where able to work through the set up and solve the problem. It would be very beneficial if you could find that. Good Luck, Lisa
PS. One of the rock songs my daughter listens to refers to the warning of the "canary;” a reference to the historical fact that canaries were used to provide warnings to the miners of the presence of gases. She now refers to our CO2 monitors as the canaries.
The child also didn't know what AM and FM meant so she decided that AM was "Adult Monotony" and FM was "Fun Music." She has always seen the world just a tad different.
