I was in the TH Den today doing some work on the skirting project, fired up the gen set to give it a little work out, which I do every 3-4 weeks. And to be extra safe, both doors,(12'w x14'H) were wide open, the West wind was blowing thru there at over 30+ mph, temps went from 40* inside to 5* above in about 30 seconds and I got cold real quick.
The stupid CO detector started blasting it's mouth off and never stopped till I shut off the gen set, HUH. There is NO WAY any exhaust fumes got into or could get into the TH with the amount of wind blowing thru those doors.
I am having a hard time understanding this CO detector. It is mounted inside the bedroom right by the door on the ceiling. I have looked on the www and can't seem to find out if, is CO is lighter than normal air or heavier? My reasoning on it is, it must be lighter as the detector is mounted on the ceiling.
The propane detector is mounted by the door and I know LPG is heavier than air and sinks into low spots.
The only thing I can think is, it just decided to give up the ghost and die at this time? I have never had a problem before with it. It got too cold for me inside the den and I went inside, my projects can wait till the temps raise a little.
Any suggestions on this CO detector?
