Hi r/landlord. I'm planning to become a landlord for the first time after I move out of my current property (single family house). I currently have a SimpliSafe home security system, through which I have a carbon monoxide detector and a smoke detector (both battery powered). If any of them go off, I have a monitoring subscription with SimpliSafe, through which they will call me and, if unresponsive, will call the firefighters.
Now, this set-up with SimpliSafe possibly has two issues:
So, the questions then becomes:
I think Kielyn might be experiencing some slight carbon monoxide poisoning from the trapped smoke in her shelter. Her vision is blurry, her head hurts, and she seems hysteric at times. She was thinking about tapping, but then went outside and got lots of fresh air. Her mind cleared and then she decided to stay... She spends so much time indoors that I worry she might be getting sick from it!
I had this thought earlier today.
What if the dragon fire is from an incomplete combustion within the dragon, and this is causing copious amounts of Carbon Monoxide to be released into the area. This would explain why Tyrion and Daenerys ended up much dumber in the last few seasons, and also why Dany seems to have issues with her personality(She is fine with slaughtering innocents now, when she used to be very opposed to the idea), and memory(She "kind of forgot" about the Iron Fleet even though Varys and Tyrion were constantly reminding her about it. 7-8 times I think. She also forgot about the fact that the ballistae can pierce her dragons scales which Bronn did a few seasons ago).
The only plausible explanation for these circumstances would be the brain damage that they both suffered due to the Carbon Monoxide poisoning.

On April 20th 1977, around 4:30 A.M., Harriet Carr, who lived at 940 North Olney Street in Indianapolis, Indiana, noticed her garage door was slightly ajar and went to investigate. She entered the garage to find her husband, 62-year-old Melvin “Ted” Carr, dead of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Harriet rushed inside to turn off the still running car, only to discover her husband wasn’t the only one in the garage. In the open trunk of Teds car, Harriet saw three bodies; a woman, a teenage girl, and a very young boy. As Harriet ran screaming from the garage, neighbors called police.
The three bodies found in Teds trunk were identified as 24-year-old Karen Nills, her 2-year-old son Robert, and a 17-year-old girl named Sandra Harris. All three were killed by carbon monoxide poisoning, and it was determined that both Karen and Sandra had been sexually assaulted.
Police located a loaded .25 caliber revolver in Teds pocket, and noted Ted was carrying... keep reading on reddit ➡
My girlfriend took her car, a 2010 Nissan Versa, into the shop last week with a loud exhaust. They had to repair an exhaust flange that came apart. We live in NYS, so this is a somewhat common repair for vulnerable cars roughly 10 years old (my 2010 Lexus coincidentally needed the same repair a few months ago).
Anyway, she took the car in, got it fixed, and good to go.
She drives around meeting clients as a social worker daily (even during COVID), and Monday, she was driving home, and noticed the smell of exhaust. Unsure if it was her car, or another car, she cracked her windows open on the highway to keep air flowing.
She arrived at her mom's place, parked, and within a few minutes got sick, dizzy, all that. Long story short - the ER confirmed CO poisoning later that day.
How likely is it that this tied to the flange repair job, and something was done improperly? I'm not able to find any information online other than people warning not to drive if you smell your own exhau... keep reading on reddit ➡
The loud beeping was giving me a headache and made me dizzy
I’ve smoked flower twice and both times at the beginning of the high (so not immediately after inhalation)I’ve had the feeling of lightheadedness and nothing feels real,and I don’t know if this is a good way to describe it but I feel like an alien when I have this feeling. Is there a name for this feeling?
I was cooking and I started feeling very dizzy and faint, so I stepped away from the stove. Can it still kill me even after I may have breathed it in?
I've been feeling a little weird (sick) for the past week or so. (No not COVID, already had that). Long story short, checked my gas monitor yesterday and it showed 41PPM Carbon Monoxide.
I'm fairly certain I must have a leak somewhere. Has anyone dealt specifically with this? How do you determine where it's coming from and how to fix it? My propane appliances are - water heater, range/stove, furnace. From what I understand, that gas builds up from incomplete combustion. Haven't had the furnace on in a while, water heater is used very rarely (because it's summer) so I'm wondering if the range is the main culprit. Also (and yes I know this is not ideal), but the tank connected to the range is indoors. My nose and detector don't notice any smell or actual propane, just CM.
Any advice would be great. I'm trying to decide the best course of action to solve this problem so I can sleep in my skoolie!
Thinking about the Dan Wilson, that was featured on Unsolved Mysteries, where long term carbon monoxide exposure is theorized to have played a role in his changing behavior . I wondered if Maura could have exposed to carbon monoxide in her older car, over a long period of time, as well? It wouldn't change the outcome of what happened to her, but could explain her evolving behavior in the months leading up to her disappearance. In terms of the call with her sister that made her seemingly so upset, there is much talk about her drive earlier that day - could she have been exposed during that drive and it made her more irritable as a result? Just makes me ever sadder to think about this - another factor that could have been making her life tougher to endure (at an age when it's all tough).
After flying a friend's plane I noticed that I had a headache and felt a little off (not quite nauseous). When I asked my passenger if he had a headache, he replied "yah. Why?"
I suspected it was CO, but eventually convinced myself that it was just a coincidence that we both had a slight headache, since it was 90°F (32.2°C) and the CO card looked normal (maybe it was starting to turn a tiny bit darker?).
Just to play it safe, I told the owner about my headache, and to be mindful of potential CO in the cabin. Then I went ahead and ordered an electronic CO detector.
The next time we flew the plane, my handy new detector showed 6-9ppm at cruise (then went back to 0ppm after opening windows and leaning the mixture). Then during our decent and final approach it went as high as 21ppm. After an hour at our destination we hopped back in the plane and had similar readings on the 1hr flight home.
For you pilots out there with CO detectors...
I am really close to going to the ER but trying to talk myself out of it. So one of my biggest fears is carbon monoxide poisoning. Today I did home work at my mom's office and the AC there has had so many problems. So finally, today, I get it to work but it starts getting really cold. I start shivering so I set the AC to heat the room. Immediately it begins to smell like something is burning. I keep doing homework thinking it could be the restaurant next door to my mom's office. Then the smell gets worse so I stand on a table, get up to the vent, and smell it coming through the vent. I turn the heater off and the smell got a little bit better.
So I got worried that maybe something caught fire (faulty wiring with the AC) and do some research. I found that a burning smell can be indicative of a gas problem and it can release carbon monoxide. So i immediately left the office. In total I probably breathed that smell for like 10-15 minutes. After reading that article about carbon monoxide... keep reading on reddit ➡
You cant see or smell it but you can hear it.
So the commercial proceeds to have the high pitched beeping sound that the carbon monoxide detectors do.
My dogs anxiety gets driven through the roof when they hear that.
They also play this commercual 2 times in a row sometimes
Luckily the mute button exists
So I just seen that my dads girlfriend put a carbon monoxide alarm right next to my room and she’s always out to get me. You think she put that near my room to catch me smoking meth? But that’s why I ask if meth has carbon monoxide in it
I plan on talking some sleeping pills, get in a tent, and leave some smouldering coals in a tray and hopefully be painless, have any of you tried this method?
I learned this lesson after moving into a house my dad left my siblings and I after he passed. I spent the first month listening to a chirping noise. I unplugged every fire alarm in the house and it still continued on. Turns out my dad had a carbon monoxide alarm plugged in behind the piano and that is what was chirping. Took me a month and many sleepless nights to figure it out.
Thinking about sneaking out in the middle of the night and do it in my dad's car. Maybe drive out somewhere secluded and do the deed. He has a 1998 Toyota Avalon so idk if its possible for me to do it.
I will admit I'm killing myself over a dumb reason and I feel selfish killing myself when I have so many loved ones but I honestly just can't take it anymore. Whats the point of living if you're just going to go through this cycle over and over again. One day you feel depressed as hell and it takes a couple days to weeks to find joy in the things you used to do all for it to be a waste because you came across your trigger and just want to end it all over again.. Im sorry but I feel worthless and an utter failure to everyone. I really dont want to involve my friends but I feel I should leave them with something at least.
I'm going to start working on my suicide note tomorrow. I'm giving myself one week to find a reason to go on. I know im just running away from problems but so what? You... keep reading on reddit ➡
As I posted the other day, I suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning brain damage while living in my brother's rented flat. My brother and his girlfriend seem to be against the idea of me making a claim, my brother stating that I had problems before I moved in with him, which is true, and her stating that they've used the fireplace before and been OK, which I'm kind of sceptical about, because my brother had said a day or so before that they'd used it once and turned it off because it didn't seem right, i.e. they could tell there was carbon monoxide in the air.
I didn't know this, and I had it on for two or three days in a row, when I'd just returned from South East Asia, whole my brother and his girlfriend were in Scotland.
They're in the middle of moving house right now, and I can understand that they're stressed, but I'm stressed too, with having brain damage.
What I'm asking here, I suppose, is would they have any problems if I started a claim against the landlord after they'v... keep reading on reddit ➡
We've just purchased a short-term rental property and I was planning on using a Nest Protect but just found out that they disabled support around a year ago and are forcing people to use Google Assistant for everything....
What is everyone using now? There doesn't seem to be many products in this space that support ifttt. Has anyone had any luck getting a z-wave alarm working with ifttt like the one from First Alert? I read somewhere that this one doesn't send alerts over z-wave when there is a carbon monoxide alert. Ideally I was hoping to get a sensor with other functionality such as temperature, humidity, etc., like the Protect offers, but that could be done by other sensors.
I don't mind writing some scripts to get this to work, just curious what the general community is doing.
I have a smoke alarm/carbon monoxide detector designed for ceiling mount
Do I just use a screw driver to pole a hole in the ceiling for each plastic piece, thread the plastic piece into the hole so it is snug and then screw the screw inside each piece of plastic?
The alarm in my house keeps going of in long beeps of 3 and I am not sure if it’s a false alarm (because no smoke) or if it’s a warning for carbon monoxide. It stopped after fanning it off and hasn’t gone off since but this happens occasionally with the same sounding alarm.
Manual said it would chirp once ever 30 secs if low battery. Twice every 30 seconds if danger.
It chirped every 23 seconds.
I replaced the battery and now no chirping.
Manual never said anything about super loud alarm happening once and never again...
Should i be worried?
Hi. It’s currently 3 am and atm I am sitting in the back of my moms car because the monoxide alarm went off a whole THREE TIMES before she got my family out. I was basically begging her to get us out and she scolded me because apparently her intelligence was insulted because I told her we shouldn’t be fucking ignoring it. What does she do? Scold me and tell me to go back to bed. 15 minutes later the alarm goes off again. Of course it fucking does. By the time I’m getting dressed and telling my brother to get out of the house, she finally decides to tell us to leave. As if we weren’t gonna fucking do that. Keep in mind that I(14 years old) had to get my brother ready to leave because she thought opening the windows would keep us safe. She’s been neglectful before but this is a new fucking low. I’m already nauseous and in pain and when I tell her this, she gets angry again at me because apparently I sounded too aggressive.
Sorry for venting about it here. I’m just sick of her acting li... keep reading on reddit ➡
I just started in the trade a few months ago and started working with a company a few weeks ago. I am being taught primarily by 2 technicians and one is doing carbon monoxide tests on all furnaces over 10 years old even on an A/C maintenance. Anytime the detector shows anything over 5 PPM he is shutting down the furnace and condemning it, he told me if it gets 5 ppm in 10 minutes than in an hour it could be up to 30 and eventually get high enough to permanently damage or kill someone. When I started riding with the other tech I asked him why he does not carbon monoxide test and he told me that the PPM does not scale linearly like that and that you shouldn't condemn a unit unless it is actually putting out 30 or more PPM. He then seemed very irritated that the other tech was doing that to generate more lead saying that he is using fear tactics to get his numbers up. I don't really want to be a bad technician that does stuff like that to boost my numbers but I also don't want to be putti... keep reading on reddit ➡
What states require Carbon Monoxide alarms?
Colorado (my state) requires we supply them.
One of my tenants reported a broken alarm.
But how long can I wait until this gets replaced, without prompting a civil suit of some kind?
They don't even have gas stoves, just electric so I don't think they are in danger but I don't wanna get sued.
Question for all of ya
So as carbon monoxide binds to cytochrome c oxidase, what would happen to mitochondrial and cytosolic NADH levels?
My thinking is that cytosolic NADH would increase due to the lack of ATP causing an increase in TCA activity, and mitochondrial NADH would also increase since it is no longer being oxidized to NAD+ by the electron transport chain. Any input would be awesome, thanks!
In 1990, 19-year old Chad Maurer lived with his parents, John and Dolly Maurer, in Madison, Wisconsin. He had graduated high school the previous year and was saving up money to move to Boulder, Colorado and attend college there. Chad started a new job at a bicycle shop called the Village Pedaler and his second shift there began on the morning of May 19. At 12:20 PM, Chad returned home on his lunch break in his father’s 1968 Mustang to grab some sandwiches and told his parents he was going back to the shop because it was busy there. He then asked John to borrow $20 for gas before driving away. About an hour later, John and Dolly went to buy something at the hardware store, located just a few doors down from the Village Pedaler, but noticed that the Mustang wasn’t in the parking lot when they arrived. They went into the bike shop to look for Chad, but no one working there seemed to know where he was. Chad failed to return home that night and would remain a missing person for the next two... keep reading on reddit ➡

On Thursday my service truck developed a serious leak in the exhaust manifold that gave me a bad headache and a horrible taste in my mouth and nausea. I called it in and left early for the day. After thinking about it, I realized that the bad taste in my mouth has been happening for a few months now it just wasn’t bad enough for me to connect the dots and get the truck looked at. Now it has been 3.5 days since I’ve driven and I am still experiencing the bad taste in my mouth. Should I get this looked at or is this in my head?
So I was debating the existence of ghosts with my friend and I argued that most supposedly paranormal activity was due to carbon monoxide poisoning hallucinations. He told me that it would be absurd for people to have the exact same hallucinations (as in, multiple different unrelated people seeing the same figure, or seeing a disembodied hand in the in the exact same part of a room, even when they have never heard about the specific activity or didn't know the house had a haunted reputation). This stumped me. Is there a rational explanation for this?
Delete if not allowed. Don't know where else to ask it and figured this might be the place. Getting a power washing job done today and the man doing it brought a generator, now it was placed outside only the smoke/fumes kept blowing through the door and windows which set off the carbon monoxide alarm, its currently reading at 136 ppm? I assume that's dangerous, have all windows in the house open and doors also but how long should it take to clear and what reading is a safe one to be able to breathe normally, currently wearing a ski mask.
Edit: air seems to be okay now, the alarm stopped going off, was last at 031 before dropping to 000 and is now just giving a temperature read. Also I'm not part of the sub, should I leave this post up just so people have the information if they were in a similar situation
The Amazon rainforest is on fire again, as the man-made forest fires are spreading to create new farmland. The wildfires are releasing a lot of smoke and Carbon Monoxide, which can be traced circulating the entire Southern Hemisphere.
That beeping noise was driving me crazy!
What Smoke / Carbon Monoxide detector / alarm are you guys using that is compatible with HA? I had Nest in my old place and loved them. Their long term battery capacity, their "nightly promise" that checked on the status of everyting nightly, etc were all awesome. But sadly I want one that is compatible with HA and Nest isn't.

Beryllium atoms react with dinitrogen and carbon monoxide mixtures to form the end‐on bonded NNBeCO and side‐on bonded (η2‐N2)BeCO complexes, both of which isomerize to the more stable NBeNCO isomer, showing that the activation of N2 with fully cleaved N−N bond can be achieved by coupling with carbon monoxide via a major group atom.
The reactions of laser‐ablated beryllium atoms with dinitrogen and carbon monoxide mixtures form the end‐on bonded NNBeCO and side‐on bonded (η2‐N2)BeCO isomers in solid argon, which are predicted by quantum chemical calculations to be almost isoenergetic. The end‐on bonded complex has a triplet ground state while the side‐on bonded isomer has a singlet electronic ground state. The complexes rearrange to the energetically lowest lying NBeNCO isomer upon visible light excitation, which is characterized to be an isocyanate complex of a nitrene derivative with a triplet electronic ground state.
