Revolutionary sensing technology enables superior features and performance:
- 10% LEL (Lower Explosive Limit) gas alarm threshold, alerting you to an emergency situation much sooner than traditional technologies that are designed to alarm at 25% LEL
- Virtually eliminates nuisance alarms caused by harsh household chemicals such as laundry detergent, disinfectant spray, aerosol hairspray, furniture polish and others
- Micro-Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) sensor provides accurate and faster detection of Methane gas than traditional type sensors
- MEMS sensor technology allows approximately 6 years of battery life, as compared to 1 year of battery life on conventional sensors
- Battery powered device enables installation close to ceiling (where natural gas is more accurately detected, as natural gas is lighter than air and therefore rises towards the ceiling) without the need of a cosmetically displeasing cord
- Device can be installed in a wider variety of environments compared to traditional technologies, including a temperature range of 32°F to 122°F and a humidity range of 5% to 95%RH, non-condensing
- Voice alert: “Danger – gas leak explosion risk – evacuate, then call 911”
- Battery powered with 6 year warranty. (Battery pack is included - please do not remove plastic wrap around battery pack)
- Features low battery & end of service life notifications to ensure you are always protected.
- If the unit detects a potential natural gas leak, the natural gas detector will beep loudly (85 dB from 10 feet away) and provide an audible voice warning, in both English and Spanish, to evacuate the building.
Easy to install - mounts with one screw, no wiring or bracket necessary:
The New Cosmos Methane Gas Detector should be installed in all rooms where a gas leak may occur or a gas appliance is located. Examples are a kitchen (gas leaks from gas ovens and cook tops), laundry (gas leaks from a gas clothes dryer), and furnace area (gas leaks from furnace burners or boilers). However, do not install closer than 10 feet (3 meters) from gas appliance. It is possible that gas leaks may migrate along pipes so consideration should be given to place gas detectors in multiple rooms. Gas detectors should be located between 6 to 12 inches (0.15 to 0.3 meters) from the ceiling.

This natural gas alarm should be installed indoors in any room that has a gas-fueled appliance. This can include a stove, furnace, water heater, gas fireplace, or a gas dryer. Natural gas is lighter than air and accumulates towards the ceiling - not by the floor. It should be installed on the wall, between 4 to 12 inches from the ceiling. It should be installed at least 5 feet away from cooking appliances or cooktop hoods and at least 10 feet away from other gas appliances.
Traditional plug-in natural gas alarms are installed too low and may not detect dangerously high-levels of natural gas before reaching an explosive level. Detection can occur earlier when alarms are installed higher in the room, giving residents more time to react appropriately.
The Power LED (green) tells you if the natural gas alarm is on. To check if the natural gas alarm is on, hold the Test button for less than 3 seconds, then release. You will hear the natural gas alarm beep once, and the Power LED will blink for 3 seconds.
The Trouble LED (yellow) tells you a few different things with the natural gas alarm. If the Trouble LED is blinking once every 10 seconds, this means the battery is low. If the Trouble LED is blinking twice every 10 seconds, this means the device has reached its end-of-service-life. If the Trouble LED is blinking 3 times every 10 seconds, this means there is a detector error.
The Alarm LED (red) tells you if methane gas has been detected at a concentration above the alarm threshold. In the event of a natural gas alarm, the Alarm LED will blink once every 2 seconds until the gas leak conditions have been resolved.
- Open the battery cover on the back of the detector.
- This cover slides out of place. To open, place both thumbs on the back of the battery cover where the battery cover hooks snap into place.
- Push down where the battery cover snaps into place with your thumbs and slide the cover out. Some force is required.
- Connect the included lithium battery by inserting the battery harness connector into the product.
- Do NOT remove the plastic wrap surrounding the battery pack.
- The battery connector has a large notch on it that faces up when installed correctly. There is only one way in which the connector can be installed. A small portion of the connector will be exposed when connected properly. You should hear it click into place.
- After connecting the battery, place the battery with the labels facing down and the battery wires wrapping around the top side of the battery pack. For the best fit, it is recommended to have the negative (-) terminals face toward the outer edge of the detector.
If at any time your natural gas detector's alarm sounds or if you ever smell or hear a natural gas leak:
- Evacuate immediately and take others with you.
- Do not use a phone; light a match; turn on or off lights, flashlights, or appliances; start a car; or do anything else that could create a spark or flame and cause the gas to ignite or explode.
- Call 911 once you are safely outside the premises. You can report leaks anonymously.
- Do not re-enter the premises until told to do so by authorities.
In the event of a gas leak, you may smell natural gas before the natural gas detector's alarm is activated. Whether or not the unit's alarm is sounding, if you smell gas, act fast. Report the leak once you are safely outside.
- Smell - A distinctive, strong odor similar to rotten eggs
- See - A white cloud, mist, fog, bubbles in standing water, blowing dust, or vegetation that appears to be dead or dying for no reason
- Hear - Roaring, hissing, or whistling
The natural gas detector was designed to be as low maintenance as possible. If the unit's alarm is never activated, the battery inside the natural gas detector should last for approximately five years. If the unit's alarm is activated, the battery will last for less than five years. If the unit begins to sound its low battery signal - a single intermittent chirp - contact New Cosmos Electric Co. at 1-847-749-3064 to obtain a replacement battery; these batteries are not available in stores.
The manufacturer recommends testing the unit at least once a week and cleaning the unit once a month by gently vacuuming the outside of the unit; do not use water, cleaning, and maintenance.
Yes. Since the unit is powered by an internal battery, the natural gas detector should continue to function during a power outage.
No, the natural gas detector will only detect the presence of natural gas in the area where the unit is installed. It will not detect fire, heat, smoke or the presence of any other gases, including carbon monoxide (CO).
No, the natural gas detector will only monitor the air in the area where the unit is installed. Natural gas leaks could be present in other areas and/or on other floors of your home or building without reaching the natural gas detector. As such, the unit's alarm may not sound in the event of a natural gas leak in a remote part of your home or building. Doors or the obstructions may also affect the rate at which natural gas reaches the natural gas detector. You should install separate gas detectors as needed in other areas of your home where natural gas appliances are used.
No, the natural gas detector's alarm may not be heard in all rooms or situations. Since the natural gas detector is installed in a limited area of your home or building - such as the kitchen, for example - people sleeping or awake in other rooms or on other floors may not hear the unit's alarm in the event of a natural gas leak. People may not hear the alarm if the sound is at a distance and/or blocked by closed doors and/or other obstructions. Noise from traffic, stereos, radios, televisions, air conditioners, appliances, or other sources may also prevent people from hearing the unit. The unit's alarm is not intended for people who are hearing impaired.
