Carbon Monoxide

Carbon Monoxide is invisible & without smell or taste, but it can kill you very quickly. Less modern gas appliances including cookers and fires are most likely to produce this leathal gas.

Carbon monoxide, CO, is a colourless, odourless, tasteless, poisonous gas produced by incomplete burning of carbon-based fuels, including gas, oil, wood & coal. It has the same density as the air we breath & as it warms, it rises - which affects the position of your Carbon Monoxide detector. When you breath the gas, it enters the blood stream & prevents the blood from bringing oxygen to cells, tissues, and organs.



Do Not:
  • Do not use poorly maintained appliances that burn gas or otherfossil fuels
  • Do not install, convert or service fuel burning appliances without proper training
  • Do not use gas appliances if they produce yellow flames and deposit soot on walls
  • Do not use unflued appliances in small closed up rooms
  • Do not use gas cookers for heating rooms
  • Do not sleep in a bedroom with an unflued gas fire


Do:
  • Do employ a suitably qualified engineer, who is registered with the Gas Safe Register (formerly CORGI), for work on gas appliances
  • Do have fuel-burning appliances checked regularly by a qualified engineer
  • Do fit a carbon monoxide alarm that meets British or European Standards
  • Do make sure chimneys and flues are clean and not blocked
  • Do make sure that all rooms are well ventilated when an appliance is being used
  • Do fit an extractor fan in your kitchen
