    Hi Tammy, sorry wasnt on for a few days-

    FIREPLACES - If you use a fireplace for heat in the winter
    and have an airtight home, please be sure to place carbon
    monoxide alarms in your home. I personally know of a case
    where a cockatiel became ill and so did the owners of the
    newer airtight home because of carbon monoxide poisoning.
    They were fortunate to be alive.
