here's a strange one: new light fixture sets off alarm
I had an electrician replace a ceiling light fixture. Similar style, ceiling flush mount with glass dome, just newer style. Old one had one bulb and had been either a incandescent or compact fluorescent bulb.
New fixtures has 2 bulbs - I put 2 new compact fluorescent in there.
There is a combination smoke and co2 detector just a few inches away from the fixture.
Since new fixture went in this past Thursday, about half the time I flip the switch to turn it on, the co2 detector goes off!
It beeps and says "TESTING! co2 detected in hallway. co2 levels of 0 ppm"
It never went off when the old fixture was there??? I guess if it's just saying testing and 0, maybe I just live with it???
or would you call someone? manufacturer? fire department?
Even more strange, replaced same fixture in upstairs hallway, same detector just inches away, and it never goes off when i flip the light switch.
thanks in advance
