Your Home Property Consultants
Answer: CO mixes with air, so chest to knee height if possible is best in terms of location. In the home itself, for the best coverage, place one in each major area of your house. If that is untenable, the most important areas are sleeping areas/rooms, then places like the garage, by your furnace, laundry room if your dryer is gas operated, and if its multistory, then one on each story.
