CO2 detector mounting
A while back, the fire department did volunteer inspections of smoke/CO2 detectors in homes in our area.
I discovered that CO2 detectors need to be mounted near floor level as CO2 is heavier than air. One inspector told me with CO2 detectors on the ceiling, when levels get high, these things will trigger, but in a lot of cases when those dangerous levels are reached, it can be too late.
I was thankful for the fire department's visit and moved our CO2 detectors down to near floor level.
