If you live in a house or flat that’s entirely powered by electricity, you won’t need a carbon monoxide detector. But if you have a fuel (gas, LPG, oil, wood) burning boiler, fire or stove, the fuel must be burnt cleanly and efficiently, otherwise it can produce Carbon Monoxide (CO). A CO2 detector should be installed in every room where fuel is burned.
CO is a poisonous gas that you can’t see, smell or taste, which makes it all the more dangerous as you won’t know if your appliances are giving off the gas.
CO poisoning is often mistaken for flu, as the symptoms are very similar.These include include dizziness, headaches, breathlessness, nausea and, more seriously, loss of consciousness.In worst cases, symptoms can be fatal, which is why fitting a CO alarm is so important.
Safety Checked can supply any domestic premises with an Aico Carbon Monoxide Alarm (EI208), which comes with a 10 year battery, free App, plus downloadable reports, for only £24.95 (including VAT) – which is cheaper than the Screwfix price of £29.99! Devices can be collected from our office.
If you’re a landlord it is now law that all rented properties are installed with a CO2 detector if that property has solid fuel heating.We can install for you and provide a free survey of your existing smoke detectors for only £60.00 including VAT.
