The AC powered Kidde Nighthawk Premium Plus Carbon Monoxide Alarm

This model has a direct plug with digital readout, peak level memory, test button & battery back-up + hideaway cord. Nighthawk Carbon Monoxide Alarms are designed to monitor carbon monoxide levels continuously. This alarm will not only alarm if a high level of carbon monoxide is detected, but also if continuous lower levels are sensed. The alarm will sound within 90 minutes at 100 ppm (parts per million), within 35 minutes at 200 ppm, and within 15 minutes at 400 ppm. The digital display on the face of the unit shows the current level of carbon monoxide detected. In the event the detector alarms, it retains in high memory the highest reading since the unit was last reset. This means that even if carbon monoxide levels have dropped since the alarm sounded, the service technician or fire department can verify the level of carbon monoxide originally detected.

How many carbon monoxide detectors should you have and where should you place them?

The Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends a detector on each floor of a residence. At a minimum, a single detector should be placed on each sleeping floor with an additional detector in the area of any major gas burning appliances such as a furnace or water heater. Installation in these areas ensures rapid detection of any potentially malfunctioning appliances and the ability to hear the alarm from all sleeping areas.
