Carbon Monoxide Detector

I''m looking for advice on a CO detector. I''ve got my kerosene heater working but the wife is nervous, perhaps rightly so..

Which type would work best? If I install a powered unit I may need to mount it in the vicinity of the galley stove...are these things so sensitive that a CNG burner might set one off?

Any comments appreciated...

There are some p volt bat units that sell for less than 30.00 I have two in my boat. Thay say do not mount near the kitchen. also do not mout them were a fan will be blowing on them. We had a couple die hear last year taking a nap with AC runing off generator, There co detector was mounted with a fan blowing acrosd it.

We installed a 12V CO Monitor in our main cabin, directly across from the galley (8'' or so from the stove) despite the warning about keeping them distant from stoves. (After''s a boat!) Our motivation was the installation of a kero/diesel bulkhead heater (which is mounted 7'' distant from the monitor). It tests fine but has never uttered a peep, despite some *really* big meals being prepared on occasion (the Mate had all 4 burners going...) in a winter climate with everything buttoned up. We''ve also had a few flare-ups during our learning curve with the bulkhead heater; again no sqawks from the monitor. My conclusion is that they are pretty easy to live with until you really are suffering an extended CO contamination situation.
