During this latest cold spell, I came home to a house that was just over 50 degrees. I had a clogged condenser pipe that triggered an automatic shutoff. I was able to take care of it myself and heard the general warnings about carbon monoxide and home repair on heating devices. I became very conscious of the fact that my basement workshop has gas appliances heating the water and the air and I had no detectors for monitoring for CO. I picked up two monitors, one for my shop, and one for my living space. If I am working or sleeping, I will know if there is a leak.
With all the cold weather and discussions generated about the various ways one heats the shop and the fact that what we do has the potential for clogging the airflow, I thought it might be a good idea to remind everyone to get one of these contraptions. No odor, no visible traces, by the time you know something is wrong, you are already in serious trouble.
