Natural Gas Detector Wiring Diagram

Location:

A Natural Gas Detector is usually located in each room (except kitchens or bathrooms) where there are gas appliances or through which gas pipes pass. Do NOT mount it in a corner. Also do NOT mount it the in kitchens or bathrooms – alcohol’s, ammonia, cleaning solvents, paint thinner, gasoline vapors, and aerosol propellants (aerosol cans such as hair spray usually contain a combustible gas) may cause alarms. Do NOT mount it where the normal ambient temperature is below 32° F (0° C) or exceeds 120° F (50° C). If the gas used is natural gas (methane), mount the detector on a wall about one foot down from the ceiling. If the gas used is propane (LP), mount the detector on a wall or column one foot above the floor. Use the same spacing as for smoke detectors 30-foot centers, 900 square feet per detector.
