Nest publishes CO white paper

Nest today published a white paper that outlines CO data, to help fire service professionals, safety experts and consumers better understand CO events in real homes.

Key findings of the paper, based on data from November 2013 and May 2014 include:

0.15 per cent of Nest homes experienced a CO event per month between November 2013 and May 2014               

Peak CO levels during CO alarms ranged from 70 parts per million to 1,964 ppm, with a median of 142ppm    

The length of CO events ranged from three minutes to over 24 hours, with a median of 1 hour and 17 minutes  

Nest Protect’s data suggests that at least one million households across the US, UK, and Canada are exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide each year

The availability of real-world data on such a significant scale presents the significant benefits to the CO community, from helping people understand the scale of this threat to working with regulation bodies to evolve current codes and standards.
