I have one question regarding this topic of Carbon Monoxide and detectors; we live in a house without any gas whatsoever... all appliances are electric. The only exception is the wood-burning fireplace, which we use a few times per winter, as it's really more for looking at than keeping the house warm. (Sucks warm air out of the house and up the chimney.)

Should a house have CO detectors, even if there are no gas lines on the property? (We have a two-car garage, but the cars are never idled in it, only run long enough to get them in or out of the garage.)

Have thought about purchasing a detector or two for safety's sake, but wondered if they would really be necessary considering the lack of gas, lines, or meters on our property.
