@ChristosAmarandos it's look like it's a Ionization type detector.

Even if the landlord said me that it was doing CO alarm it is not written on it so I guess it's not detecting CO. I have a bunch of other device for detecting CO and so far it's didn't measure anything.

I notice also that it's can be trigger by steam, for example when taking a shower.

About the ceiling, I still wonder where goes the CO. I'm not sure that the CO will move differently than the air. By the way the density of CO (1.145 kg/m^3 at 25 C) is smaller than one of air (1.1839 kg/m^3 at 25 C). Here is a link of CO manufacturer who said that CO is lighter than air firstalert.com/faqs/co-alarm/…

I agree that in that case if your put the CO detector near the furnace or in the ceiling, if the CO detector go off that not mean you have 30 ppm every where in the place (or whatever is the threshold value) but I suspect that mean that there is a problem. I don't think anybody want to breathe 25 ppm of CO every day. That will probably give you some serious injuries. Most of cheap CO detector will not detect 25 ppm

I don't understand why it's not good to place the CO detector close to the furnace and in the ceiling. Is it just for limit the call to the emergency service?

I'm really interested by the laws states by states in the US.
