With heating season just around the corner, household heating equipment will be fired up. Household heating equipment is one of the greatest risks for producing CO within residential dwellings.
Problems often seen with CO detectors are:
1.    Dead batteries or aging detectors that are inaccurate and give false alarms, 5-7 years is the maximum expected life span. 
2.    Improper placement  - they should be 15 feet away from any source of combustion gasses to avoid false alerts.
3.    Failure to clean dust etc from the detector on a regular basis - yielding false alarms.
