Carbon monoxide detectors
A well-installed, regularly maintained gas appliance is extremely reliable and unlikely to pose any risk to your household.
However, if you haven't had your gas appliances serviced in the last 12 months, not only are these appliances likely to be operating less effectively in general, there’s an increased risk of them burning fuel inefficiently as well, which means they could be giving out dangerous CO fumes.
For more information on the importance of regular servicing please refer to the attached PDF file below.
The symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure
Because carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless, tasteless poisonous gas, it’s almost impossible for you to notice, but if it builds up in your house, it can pose a really significant health risk. Mild exposure can cause headaches, vertigo, and flu-like symptoms, which is bad enough, but the real danger is that greater exposure can lead to damage to the central nervous system or even death. In today’s hectic world, we can all suffer from headaches and flu-like symptoms, and most of us wouldn’t be likely to make a connection with our boiler.
Protect you & your famliy
For peace of mind we recommend two things, have all your gas appliances serviced every 12 months and install at least one carbon monoxide detector. Although one in each area that contains a gas appliance would help give earlier detection in the event of carbon monoxide building up, but one is certainly better than none.
