I know it requires you to allocate special budget for installing carbon monoxide detector. And the problem is you have to install more than 1 unit. Number of the detectors will depend on number of rooms, home size, carbon monoxide sources available and so on.
If I need 5 pieces of carbon monoxide detectors, then how much does a carbon monoxide detector cost?
How Much Does A Carbon Monoxide Detector Cost?
Actually, it will depend on brand name and its features. In the market, carbon monoxide detector price ranges from $5 to $35 per piece. So, if you have to install 5 pieces, then you have to prepare budget in average $100. There is no installing cost since you can install it by yourself. It is very easy to do.
Just buy plug ins carbon monoxide detector for your home. What you have to do is to plug it into AC wall outlet. It is very very easy to do!
