Arnie is a great man. Thankfully he and his family survived this. Let this serve as a reminder for all of us.

Also, I don't know of a residential CO detector on the market that is listed for more than 7 years. Some are only effective for as little as 3 years.If you haven't replaced yours in a while, maybe now is a good time.

On that note, residential smoke detectors are only rated for 10 years. They need to be changed after that.

The test button in all these devices only tests the electronics. It does NOT test the detection chambers, which can fail over time.

If you are replacing your hardwired smoke detectors, Kidde (which purchased Firex) makes a great combination smoke/CO detector.This is the brand us contractors prefer. They are also available at Menards. They are very simple to change if you know how to turn a wire nut. Be sure to have a CO detector near every bedroom area, so that you will hear the alarm when you are sleeping.
