Well I hope you figure it out, as moving to Connecticut from Florida.
never had to worry about any of this shit before.
But our house use to be rented so it's got fire, smoke, Co. in a central alarm with detectors all over the house. Except in the vaulted room where the fireplace is. The fawkin thing went off when we were out of power (Nor-Easter Alfred) 7 days. When the smoke from fireplace back filled the house.
I fixed it with a broom handle.

CO detectors do "stack", so if they had a legitimate alarm before, they will not work again correctly.
It is an intertherm, high efficiency, with electronic ignition. When we bought the house there was a CO detector mounted in every bed room and one plug in one in the living room. I do believe that we had a ligitimate alarm before, it was when I had the gas hot water heater, the temp swing was just right that water heater would not draft right and caused spillage back into the house, I ahve since gone electric.

Any leaky sewer lines in your house? Do you normally have some windows open until it gets too cool?
We do usually keep the windows open until it gets to cold not too. The house does not have any sewar smell, but I think another gas could be setting them off. Like if the drywall is emiting VOCs or something similer, or cheap chinease carpet, that came in the house?

Well last night we turned the furnace back on, we left the blower on all night to move air around the house, and we had no alarms or readings all day and night from our new CO detectors with readouts.

I think we either have nuisance trips from some other gas that can set off these alarms, for what it is worth my dog was farting all day yesterday, I think it is possible that the other night when the alarm went off, if he was farting over and over right in front of the detector and set it off.
