You know how they say that every home should have one or two C02 monitors? At least they do here in the north because furnaces are notorious for messing up and putting out carbon dioxide. Not that it happens often but if it does happen you definitely want to know.
Well, we have a gas and C02 monitor. It’s supposed to be able to run on a battery if the power fails, but ours won’t. We must keep it plugged in all the time.
Now, normally we do keep it plugged in, but if the power goes out for an hour or more – and it has been doing that regularly – the monitor starts to fail. I guess it just eats batteries for dinner!
Of course when the battery fails the monitor starts to wail and sends out a high pitched beep as well. It’s sooooooo loud.
I think I’m going to have to look for a new one. Perhaps by a different maker that doesn’t do this.
Oh yes, when the battery does run out on it’s own it almost always happens in the middle of the night. We’ve had more false alarms with this thing than I can count!
Anyone know of a really good gas and C02 monitor brand that we could try?
