Carbon Monoxide Detector Location Guide

To insure all occupants safety, your carbon monoxide detector location must be considered carefully. At the very minimum a detector needs to be installed outside all sleeping areas in the home.

In today's rambling floor plans, a number of detector locations may need to be considered. Beside the sleeping areas, it would be prudent for a CO detector to be placed in the basement near your utility room or, of course, if a bedroom is in the basement.

If there are bedrooms on different levels of the house or in different areas of the same floor a co detector must be near all sleeping areas. Also consider detector placement near your furnace and water heater if they are non-electric. Learn more about installations here....
