Designed to promote peace of mind and household safety, the GCO1CN Combination Explosive Gas and Carbon Monoxide Alarm accurately senses the presence of methane and propane. It also features an advanced electrochemical CO sensor that detects carbon monoxide leaks from a variety of sources, such as faulty fuel-burning appliances, blocked chimneys, and cars left running in the garage. When the alarm detects a threat, it alerts you with a loud 85-decibel alarm.
Backlit Display for Reviewing Readings
Equipped with a backlit digital display, the GCO1CN Combination Explosive Gas and Carbon Monoxide Alarm takes the hassle out of monitoring CO and explosive gas levels in your home. The display gives you a clear readout of current and peak levels, allowing you to discern patterns that indicate potential leaks from an appliance, a generator, or other source.
Plugs into Any AC Outlet for Effortless Setup
This alarm is easy to set up and doesn't require any wiring or the help of an electrician. The compact, low-profile unit plugs cleanly into an AC wall outlet without obstructing other sockets and comes with a line cord for versatile placement options. The alarm also features a 9-volt backup battery to help ensure continued operation in the event of a power outage. A pivoting, easy-to-access battery drawer allows you to replace the battery without dismounting the alarm.

Monitor your house for dangerous levels of methane, propane, and carbon monoxide with the First Alert GCO1CN Combination Explosive Gas and Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Backlit Digital Display. This explosive gas and CO alarm detects the presence of combustible gases propane and methane and alerts you with a loud 85-decibel alarm. It also comes equipped with an electrochemical CO sensor that accurately detects carbon monoxide leaks from faulty fuel-burning appliances, blocked chimneys, and a variety of other sources. Designed for easy setup, this explosive gas and CO detector plugs into any AC outlet with no additional mounting hardware needed. The alarm can be configured to work with almost any standard household remote control (not included), so you can remotely silence nuisance alarms with the push of a button. The backlit digital display shows current and peak levels, allowing you to easily review the alarm's readings. For added safety, a backup battery helps keep the alarm functioning even in the event of a power outage. And thanks to a convenient test/silence button, you can easily check whether your alarm is functioning properly and mute false alarms.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America, yet many people don't know they are suffering from CO poisoning until its too late. Since symptoms of CO poisoning are like the flu, you might not even know you're in danger at first. That's why a carbon monoxide alarm is an excellent way to protect your family. It can detect the CO you can't see, smell or taste in the air.
The First Alert GCO1CN combination explosive gas and carbon monoxide alarm uses an electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor-the most accurate technology available. It also detects natural gas, methane gas, and propane gas. Installation is as simple as plugging it in to any wall outlet or mounting it above an outlet and plugging in the higher line cord. Its easy-to-read large digital display gives you a clear readout of current hazard and levels. A peak level button alerts you to the highest level of explosive gas or carbon monoxide detected. The alarm includes a battery back-up giving you peace of mind in a power outage. The test/silence button both silences a non-threatening alarm or low battery warning and allows you to test the unit's functionality. The unit monitors and alarms if carbon monoxide or explosive gas levels persist sounding a loud 85-decibel horn. A low battery signal alerts you to replace the 9-volt battery (included).

I purchased this alarm in December 2016 after having a new vent-less space heater installed in my living room/den. One of the gas line connections leaked and wasn't discovered until the next day. I began shopping then for a carbon monoxide detector with a gas leak detector.
I decided on this model and purchased and installed it according to the enclosed recommendations.
Less than one month later I came home from work and the entire house smelled of propane, every single room. I called a technician who found a leak inside the heater. The propane smell was strong and very noticeable after leaking into a closed home all day, however the First Alert Alarm didn't detect the leak.
The detector was installed, as per instructions and in the same room as the heater and it didn't alarm-not once. It's been installed less than 60 days and it doesn't work. I tested the alarm at installation and every week as indicated but it failed to alarm when needed. I even took the alarm down and placed it near the heater where I was smelling the propane the strongest, while waiting for the technician, and it still failed to alarm.
I now wonder if it ever worked or would have worked if it had been carbon monoxide instead of a gas leak. It certainly gave me a false sense of security.
Until I can find a more suitable explosive detector, I'm stuck with this model.
Others have mentioned the battery and it is a real pain. This unit consumes battery power even when the unit is powered from the wall socket. This is a really bad design. This means the battery will drain at least once a year even if you never loose power. Usually after a single power outage we have to replace the battery because the new battery was drained when from the unit had power. Very annoying to have the power go out for a little while at night and have to get up to replace the battery because the unit is beeping all night. So we have to replace the battery about 2-3 times a year. On the positive side, changing the battery is pretty quick even when half asleep.
I would look for a different product. When this was bought, there was not anything better on the market.
It apparently worked just fine until two days ago when it started to alarm. We arrived home to the piercing sound of the beep and the display showed the detector was peaked out and GAS Evacuate also displayed. We aired the house out and I called both Xcel Energy and One Hour Heating & A/C to get things checked out. (Airing the house out stopped the alarm by the way and we are in the middle of a cold North Dakota winter.)
Both the Xcel and One Hour guy agreed there was no gas leak inside or outside of the house. The One Hour guy checked over our 7 year old furnace and said everything is just fine with that. Yet... here I am, up at 4:00 AM to another alarm!
Are we in danger? Is the gas detector a POS? I guess time will tell for sure. I can't trust this detector the way it is. I emailed my son to tell him about this and to sue the (expletives) if we end up asphyxiated!
This all started since I changed the 9 volt battery about 4 days ago due to a low battery beep. The battery indicator shows the battery is getting low already (blinking battery icon with 2/3 black) even though it tests just fine under load with my battery tester. I took the battery out for a half hour and it starts beeping a gas alarm again when I put it back in.
I have read several other reviews where it has been mentioned about the so-called false alarms coinciding with a low battery. I wouldn't think a two thirds battery strength should be considered "low".
So, here I sit in the middle of the night not sleeping and wondering if I dare go to sleep...
