Question about Kidde Nighthawk Combo Gas/co Detector
At around 5am we were woken up by the loud beeping...it read gas and when i frantically pushed buttons to make it stop it said 235. i opened the windows and it stopped but i took out the battery too for good measure (and left the windows open). our condo building has no gas line. only electric. for the life of me i can't figure out why it would go off - it happened once before a few months back, also in the middle of the night... We've had this unit for 3 yrs and have recently changed the battery...thoughts? Maybe we'll switch to a regular CO2 only reader...
Don't take this the wrong way, but there are other possible sources of natural gas (methane) in a home. We used to have our combo detector installed in the hallway outside the bathroom, and no joking, we would get false alarms when people forgot to turn on the fan after using the bathroom.

Your thinking along the right line, combo units seldom work as single function units. keep in mind that a CO detector need to be replaced every 5 years on average. look at the date code on the new unit to make sure it reads good until or replace by 2012 of better.
