Not to pick a nit, but how many people are going to do that? Most are probably going to put it outside a window right next to their bedroom. A lot of people don't even have 20 feet of yard space, and even if they do it might be out on a sidewalk by that time.

The point is that if I were to recommend to someone what to get, I'd recommend a sealed 12V battery, solar panel and inverter. The only downside is that a lot of batteries don't do well when frozen, nor when too hot, and keeping one in the house takes up a space.

I have had friends who have died from carbonmonoxide poisoning. I have known others who have nearly died from it too. And I know a lot of people who keep their CO/smoke detector without a battery so it won't work. Usually people who cook more and have less education, so everytime they burn something on the stove the smoke detector goes off, so they figure out a way to keep it off.
