A carbon monoxide detector installation is a simple procedure, often as easy as plugging it into an outlet. But please read your co detectors instructions carefully as this will be your best advice. In the chart below are some basic guide lines to follow during a detectors installation.
Consider a battery powered unit that can be placed on a wall or ceiling. Why not an electric model? CO detector plugged into outlets have a good chance of being damaged by pets or children.
If you install a carbon monoxide detector on the wall please be carefully to follow the units recommendations as to how near to the ceiling the detector can be placed. This is because air movement near the wall and ceiling is often very limited.
