A blog for "green" enthusiasts, small business owners and Mom's making a difference!
Oh My Gosh!!! I recently wrote an article for a magazine where I talked about a CO detector that did not work, yet passed the "button" test. It turns out that CO detectors have a relatively short life (about 5 years). The older units do not warn you that they can no longer detect CO. So in addition to your strong recommendation, I will add to make sure your CO detector is less than 5 years old (date is on the back) and also make sure that your propane and smoke detectors are in good working order.If you have compromised breathing issues, I strongly recommend a CO detector with a digital read out, as even small amounts (lower than the trigger level) can really create blood saturation issues. I really feel a bit stupid here. I should have at least warned my own daughters of what my research revealed. I will send you the article by email.Love, Dad
Oh, my. I need to check on ours! It's definitely more than 5 years old.
Wow, I'm glad you guys are all okay.
Oh crap - what happened? This one's not my fault, is it???
