The UL lab wont put their approval on them unless they have been dumbed down so they dont go off with low levels of CO. Low levels at sustained periods of exposure can be very harmful.
Where can I get a quality CO DETECTOR? Is this even a reasonable request? What do you have in your home?

thats probably one of the easiest heat exchangers to change, I have done them in less then 2 hours, many times. why take chances with your life or your family's life......?
