Did you know that carbon monoxide is a highly poisonous gas that you cannot see, smell or taste and is a silent killer. This gas is produced when any fuel burns incompletely and escapes from your appliance. Having your chimney regularly swept can reduce the chances of blockages and greatly reduce CO from leaking into your home. The European standard states that you should have a CO detector in or near rooms that have heating/cooking appliances located within 12 inches of the ceiling as the alarm sensors will not be obstructed and CO is the same density as rising warm air. For peace of mind
fit an alarm that is Kitemark approved.
