Carbon Monoxide is an extremely poisonous gas that can be present in the fumes of wood, gas, oil or biomass fuels which is not burnt correctly. The gas is colourless and odourless making it difficult to detect.
If you have a solid fuel burner you must have a CO alarm fixed is a permanent position in the same room as the appliance. As a registered HETAS installer we are fully aware of the all of the regulations regarding positioning your CO alarm.
We recommend testing your CO Alarm every week and we would also suggest that you familiarise yourself with the symptoms of CO poisoning (Read Carbon Monoxide Poisoning)
