i knew someone on the ground floor of a nyc apt building who died of co.
last year, i woke up at 2 am to my co detector alarm and a headache and
went downstairs and found i had shoveled a few red coals out of the
woodstove and into the ash bucket...

most houses leak a min 10% per hour, but maybe not, on a still day
with equal indoor and outdoor temps. a 60% humidistat or 0.1% co2
detector might turn on a vent fan as needed.

where? the cheapest i've seen is about $500, vs a $40 co detector.
there may be a cheaper japanese co2 detector in the near future.
