Carbon monoxide (CO) is known as the 'silent killer' as it is colourless and odourless. It can come from faulty appliances powered by any fuel such as gas, solid fuel and oil fuels.
Carbon monoxide can be produced when an appliance has been incorrectly fitted, badly repaired or poorly maintained. It can also occur if flues, chimneys or vents are blocked.
CO alarms detect the presence of this poisonous gas.
We fit a CO alarm in our tenants' homes with an open flue or chimney. If you are concerned and don’t have a CO alarm please contact the repairs team.
If your alarm is not working contact us on 01453 754 852 and we'll arrange a repair for you.
