 Single-function carbon monoxide detectors are recommended and should be installed at knee level, which is the approximate height of a sleeping person’s nose and mouth.  Heat and smoke rises, which is why we place smoke alarms high on the wall or ceiling, so if you are installing a dual smoke/CO detector, place it on the ceiling so it can detect smoke.
