    Stove expert replied: Keeping the air controls closed for overnight burning can mean that the gases stay in the firebox longer than is recommended and they can build up, (as the temperature drops outside), causing the gases to leak into the room setting off the carbon monoxide alarm. Have you an airbrick in the room? If there is limited free air this can affect the way the stove is performing and as properties are becoming more insulated is a very important thing to get right. If the stove works well other than at night this is something that can be added easily to solve this problem.
