Does Carbon Monoxide rise or fall in a room?

I'm wondering if Carbon Monoxide rises or sinks in a room? I'm looking to buy a carbon monoxide detector, and trying to find out if it's alright if I were to plug in the detector in an outlet (lower to the floor) or if it's better to put the carbon monoxide detector up high on the wall?

Carbon monoxide is nearly the same density of air, but Carbon Monoxide (CO) is slightly lighter than air. Because of that fact, Carbon Monoxide will slowly rise through your house from the basement furnace, gas stove, or an unvented heater.
