Well Go back to bed, it is Sunday, or were you getting ready to go to church?

Hope you get some sleep!

Too late, it's 6:30 am now. Been up since 2 am. Tongue

Do you have any natural gas or propane appliances, including heat or hot water??

Dom, to be on the safe side do what onlinebiker is saying, check for CO levels. Go to Target or Walmart and for <$15 pick one of these up

You may have built before CO detectors were mandated. In the US, all dwellings are required to have CO as well as smoke detectors, I believe as of June 2014. In dwellings where the wiring does not exist, we are not required to retrofit hard wiring to the detectors.

As for onlinebiker's concern, a slow smoldering electrical fire will also produce CO.

I have everything electric, no gas anywhere except for a gas grill in the outdoor kitchen.

I would have to rent a huge eyesore of a gas tank and get it refilled regularly if I wanted gas. I built the house on electricity because of that, and because I am planning to slowly convert to solar.

The only CO in my house is my dog's farts. And mine. Tongue

I like to go to buy groceries when everyone is in church. I time it so that I check out half an hour or less before church lets out - that way all the checkout stations are open but there are no customers yet.

You should be fine then... It's just that most people don't think about CO -- it's colorless and odorless -- and will kill you just as dead as shit.....

It did, a guy I went to school with.... Middle of the summer -- his gas water heater malfunctioned -- living in a trailer -- and he had it as airtight as he could get it -- with the air conditioning set on recirculate...........

His ex was lucky she'd moved out two months before.....

I heard some place that wood stoves can be a source also.

Farts are methane, not CO. You can light farts on fire. CO would put out the flame. Smartass

I sympathize with you Dom, ours goes off when the oven is set higher than 350. Yes, they're all connected, so one goes off moments later, the rest follow.

I think the speaker in the downstairs one tho stopped working. Smile it makes a sickly sound.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
