Gonna finish the maintenance while I have her shut down, recheck the seals one last time, and restart her today.
I have a CO alarm on each level of the house - basement, first, and second floor. All different models. None digital - but I've got my eye on moving in that direction. The basement one came w/ the stove - 3 yr old. The other 2 are due to be replaced - 7 years old. The alarm on the first floor issues a "warning" beep for 4 seconds every 3 minutes when it detects levels starting to rise above a certain point.
The basement and first floor ones triggered. The basement one is about 20 feet from the stove.
Funny thing is the first floor one triggered first, then the basement one some time later.
If that's not a case for having one on every floor of your house, nothing is!
Are your kids saying you are hard to buy for at Christmas and are asking what you want??? If you don't have a detector on each level, give them the hint. You think they are never going to trigger, until they actually do.
