CO2 reading rises and falls in response to temperature

I recently bought an ARANET4 Home, and have noticed that the CO2 reading on the unit rises when our heating comes on, and falls when our heating goes off. For instance, a 0.8 deg C increase in the room temperature corresponds with a gradual rise in CO2 reading from 680ppm to 980ppm. No windows were opened or closed during this time, nor people moving between the rooms. The only variable that has changed is the radiator getting warmer in the room due to the (distant) boiler coming on. What could explain this?

Thank you for choosing Aranet4 product. Most likely it is related to material used to heat up the boiler- it could be natural gas or burning wood? Or is it heated up by electricity? Perhaps your neighbours might be using gas heating as well. If the boiler(and place to heat it up) is located in same building, it might affect the CO2 for whole building as well.

Hello. Thank you for you reply.
No, our oil boiler is very distant to the room in question and behind a few closed doors. It is a detached house so no neighbours. What else could be the reason? Gas composition properties relating to temperature? Our radiators affecting CO2 somehow?

How is the boiler powered up? Can you please describe, what does the room were the measurements were taken has? Are there any animals/plants in it? How was the temperature decreased in the room? How much time did it take for the Aranet4 to register from measurement of 680ppm to 980ppm?
