A: Hello. On this alarm, the battery is preinstalled. To activate the battery, slide the alarm onto the bracket tightly and that should turn on the battery. Slide the alarm down over the mounting plate until it snaps into place. That should activate the alarm.
A: That’s a good question but I’m sure it will depend upon the recommended maintenance. Any brand/model will last longer and minimize false alarms by following the maintenance schedule and vacuuming the sensor regularly. Have you checked the manual that’s available online to see if the sensor is rated for 10 years? Otherwise I would contact the manufacturer. Best of luck.
A: Hello. Yes. The CO sensor in this alarm is UL listed to last for 10 years from first use.
A: Update. Look great a “ Carbon Monoxide and Explosive Gas Detector”. They do make those. Kiddie and first alert make them.
A: This detector is designed to alert for carbon monoxide, which is a product of combustion. It's not designed to detect propane or natural gas.
A: No, it is a carbon monoxide detector not a propane detector.
A: Not an expert but all the natural gas and propane leak detector alarms I have seen are not CO detectors. Nor the other way, CO and Smoke detectors do not detect nat gas or propane. Different chemistry.
A: Hello. No. This alarm would alert you if the gas fireplace didn't burn correctly and there was carbon monoxide leaking into your house. For detection of propane gas, you would need an explosive gas detector.
A: I believe it does.
A: wait, I was reviewing the wrong product. This does not detect smoke..sorry for the confusion
A: yes, it detects smoke
A: Hello. No, this is not a smoke and carbon monoxide alarm. It just a carbon monoxide alarm and does not detect smoke. You should still check with your state and local fire and Building/Safety codes for the installation of carbon monoxide alarms as well as the smoke alarms you are required to have in your home.
