Should I have a carbon monoxide (CO) Detector?

Carbon monoxide (CO) alarms are an essential component of life safety in the home. As it is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, CO alarms provide the best defense against potentially deadly CO. The CO alarms should be placed on all levels of a home, especially outside of sleeping areas and by any fuel fired appliances such as gas dryers, boiler, water heaters, etc. It is important to test CO alarms as you do your smoke detectors.
