Read the info and disclaimers that came with your UL listed co detector. They do not sound until levels are much greater than seems reasonable. Check out this link to a unit that sounds at low levels.

Yeah my Kiddie Night Hawk CO alarms have the digital readout. It reads 0 until the level is at or over 30 ppm.. Then a 70 ppm level has to be maintained for a specific amount of time (I think 2 hours) before the alarm will sound. The time shortens for the alarm as ppm increase. Anything under 30 ppm is considered no concern, by the alarm anyway :lol: If you have pilot lights running on your cook stove you could possibly have 10-15 ppm in your house all the time.
