Carbon Monoxide Alarms

  • Carbon monoxide (CO) is described as the ‘silent killer’ because it cannot easily be detected with effects symptomatic of other problems like lethargy, cold or flue etc.
  • Whilst not a legal requirement in 2014 it is only a question of time before it will be compulsory to fit these.
  • Unlike smoke alarms which might be fitted in several locations, only one CO alarm is likely to be required to protect tenants.
  • See also heat detectors, gas detectors, boiler servicing, gas safety certification.

About the author


Formerly a student living in a rented room my vision focused on excellence. Letting phenomenal student houses soon became more than a day job - more a way of life.

Continuing to look after our tenants I subsequently also founded what is widely recognised as a phenomenal student lettings agency.
