    Well, the toys and baby monitor say it's in use.

    I'm thinking:

    Illegal
    Most dangerous spot in the entire house
    How many scenarios would cause CO to spike or gasses to spill.
    Crack in HX can make flames do all kinds of things or flood room
    Air being drawn from the room from the crib actually.
    Infants way more susceptible to CO in small amounts

    What else?? Not even a detector in the house.

    No. I promise it's in use. I know 100%.

    I thought so.

    The Cheap Gene. They keep the house at 55 to save on fuel. Precious wonder needs to be warm. so they move PW to the spare bedroom in the basement by the gas boiler with the big draft hood. (are the safety's still in place)?

    Health Insurance deductible wipes out any savings when PW gets sick and goes in hospital. Then (Or) someone from Social Services comes and decides that a bedroom in an unfinished basement next to a boiler isn't a proper bedroom and the parents are charged with child neglect. PW goes into Foster Care while parents have to go to court ordered parenting classes to learn why unfinished basements aren't a proper nursery for little kiddo's.

    Some of us have seen this movie before. From the audience.

    The swing set up next to it is a clue. How can anybody be that stupid.

    This is awful. Great folks. Know them well. He's an engineer at a mine. Not a cheap thing. One upst bdrm is an office. Then kids and them in other 3. That's just how toddler naps during the day and sleeps at night.

    Of course I'm obligated to diplomatically say what I thought up above, no?

    Don't say a word.

    They're smart, and you're not. The closest thing I would say is that they need CO detectors over the boiler and outside the bedrooms in the main house. Get the Massachusetts regulations for new installations. They are as comprehensive as you will ever get.

    If he is a mining engineer, he might be immune to gas in mines. Mention to him about how it is a serious problem in warehouses with LPG engine fork lifts and CO if they don't have proper ventilation.

    You have to say something. That is a recipe for disaster. Not that you should have to, but explain the codes this violates.

    Yea, I didn't see the toys or baby monitor.... I can't even fathom the idea of leaving a baby in the basement, regardless if there's a boiler/furnace or not. Like locking away a monster...

    You have to say something. What on earth is wrong with people? He's an engineer but nothing is a substitute for common sense. Please don't et this go unresolved. You may lose a customer but save a life.
