Do you have a carbon monoxide detector installed in your home? They’re not expensive and could save your life.
Carbon Monoxide Detector
The best selling detector at Amazon is the Kidde 900-0233 BSI Battery Carbon Monoxide Alarm and it’s £14.01 which is only a small amount to pay for peace of mind and could save your life.
Carbon monoxide doesn’t smell, it’s invisible and it can kill!
The Kidde KS901 unit flashes its green LED every 30 seconds when no hazardous levels of CO are detected.
In a CO emergency, the red LED pulses and an 85 db horn sounds at specific intervals until the CO threat is eliminated.
Powered by AA batteries, the KS901 is able to provide continuous monitoring of CO levels, even during power outages. Plus the unit has an alarm that tells you when the batteries need to be replaced. For peace of mind, a test / reset button allows you to test that alarm is functioning properly. Plus, the KS901 is equipped with a peak-level memory that keeps track of the maximum CO level detected between resets. The KS901 is covered with a five-year manufacturer’s limited warranty and replacement is recommended after seven years.
If you rent then your landlord might provide one – if they don’t then treat yourself to one. You can take it with you when you move!
If you own your own home then you should get one yourself.
If you’ve just bought a house then get one now! It should be on your list of things to do when you move in! Change the locals, check smoke alarms and install a carbon monoxide detector.
