landlord safety advantages
Carbon monoxide alarms, or CO alarms, must be fitted in rooms containing a solid fuel burning appliance, such as a log burning stove, according to UK law. The Co alarms should also be installed in rooms containing gas appliances.
Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless, and tasteless gas that can be fatal if inhaled. The gas can be produced from the burning of most types of fuel. It is a particularly dangerous gas since it can’t be detected by the human senses. A carbon monoxide detector is essential to protect against carbon monoxide poisoning in any enclosed space where there is a possibility of this gas being emitted. Ideally an alarm should be positioned at head height about one to three meters away from a potential source of carbon monoxide.
