What is Carbon Monoxide (CO)?
CO is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas, making it difficult to detect. It is formed from the incomplete burning of domestic fuels such as gas, coal, wood. It’s effects can be fatal and people die every year from Carbon monoxide poisoning.
A carbon monoxide detector gives an early warning to the presence of CO. Regulations means that private sector landlords are required to have at least one smoke alarm installed on every storey of their properties and a carbon monoxide alarm in any room containing a solid fuel burning appliance (eg a coal fire, wood burning stove). After that, the landlord must make sure the alarms are in working order at the start of each new tenancy.
