What Do You Know About CO?

Carbon Monoxide (CO) doesn’t mix evenly with air. While it is possible for CO levels at the floor to get high enough to set off an alarm, it will always be higher near the ceiling than the floor.

This is why CO Alarms should always be mounted high, never near the floor. They should usually be placed close to eye level in an area of good airflow.

You can learn more about CO and Combustion Safety, and even register for one of NCI’s many certification classes. Go to for more details.

By the way, upcoming Combustion Performance and CO Safety Certification classes are as follows:

  • February 5-7 in St. Louis, MO
  • February 12-14 in Richmond, VA
  • February 19-21 in Atlanta, GA.
