What you exhale is not CO (carbon monoxide) but rather CO2 (i.e. carbon dioxide) which in spite of ‘popular rumors’ to the contrary is a plant fertilizer…Your detector is not designed to detect CO2 else it would likely be going off all the time, and the fact that you’ve already swapped out your detector suggest that you have either a LPG or CO issue…The most likely sources would be from either the commissioning of your LPG system, stove top or exhaust gases from the furnace…
