This is the tragic reason you should have a CO detector

Typically, all CO related problems are with gas. Oil has never been proven to mproduce CO at such unsafe levels that you would be able to stay in a room, as the odor would be unbearable. There has neven been a case of heating oil related CO. One of the biggest problems, is the ventless heaters. They should be outlawed. They are not only putting CO, but the additives in the gas, into your breathing space. They are very deadly. These are directly related to numerous breathing issues. Kerosene, Natural Gas, and Propane are the
heating systems where CO detector is crucial. I would highly recommend having 2 types of detectors. Most of the detectors are OK, but the best one to have, should cost a few hundred dollars, and they act like your body, building CO like a sponge. They will alarm far before it becomes a dangerous situation. Please put one in the appliance room, and the bedrooms. Remember, CO is like water, and our body is a sponge. The level in our body builds even at low levels just like a sponge will eventually be soaked when only being exposed to a slow drip.

Had a scare at our camp Monday night. We had CO detector go off at 0400 and it took 30 mins to clear a small one room area-

We would have been clueless without the detector-

Wood stove that was all but out....?
