BTW Kefir King the tile job is done. Came out real nice
Definitely only a CO alarm then. CO and Smoke will either say "CO and Smoke" or "Combo" alarm.

NO...you must use your nose for that!
They mix particualry smelly gases (mercaptains?) with the natural gas, almost odorless, for exactly that reason.

Sorry I am a consumer safety advocate and I will tell you the smell of smoke will actually put you into a deeper sleep I will Point out the thing you have in your house that you are calling a co2 detector is probably a carbon monoxide detector co2 is dry ice which I would think there is a very low chance of having dry ice accumulate in the home your smoke detector must absolutely be of the photo-electric type only and not combination ionzation photo electric there are 2 types of smoke alarm ionization and photo electric the photo electric is less likely to go off when you cook and only has a 4% failure rate this detector is the one reccomended by the chairman of the first home fire detection code
<iframe width="420" height="315" src="Matt Cetin (Life Or Death Smoke Alarm Test) - YouTube" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

the first one to go off is the photo electric the one recommended by the chariman of the first home fire detection code the ionization the last one to go off the kind almost 100% of U.S Homes Have has a failure rate greater than 50% you can die of carbon monoxide poisoning before an ionization alarm sounds at an hour!!!
So if it goes off every time you cook there is a high chance it will not go off in a smoke filled room!<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/K_gNnsLpHC0?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> the gut in this radio report Is the same guy in the video I had to make a sound adjusment but it should help you understand why you must have a photo electric alarm

Note 1: Vermont where this test was done was the first state to mandate photo electric alarms

note 2 : When a photo electric alarms Is install at 10 feet or greater it will probably not go off due to cooking which is what you want so it does not scream every time you cook as I said recommended by the guy in the video and the chairman of the first home fire detection code. ( follow manufacturer's instructions) and the national fire alarm code NFPA 72) please ciruculate these videos to all your friends thank you.

most Likely the type you want is not under $10 you should see if you can find my post on the full scale test show that the type almost 100% has a high chance that it will not sound early

Default please read my recent posts

Note if you have a combination alarm it must be a combination co/ photoelectric Alarm and not a combination ionization photo electric alarm or it is not likely to work properly It also can not be an ionization co alarm
