CO Alarms: Regulations recommend that CO alarms are provided by landlord’s in every room there is a gas appliance. This is also a CO requirement if you have a wood burning or multi fuel stove.
CO is a silent killer, it’s odourless, colourless and tasteless and without warning can strike with dire consequences. It’s completely undetectable without the help of an alarm!
Headaches – Nausea – Vomiting – Dizziness – Breathlessness – Chest/stomach pains – Impaired vision, are all associated with CO poisoning!
Even if you’re not a landlord the preservation of your family’s safety is something you cannot ignore or cut corners on. We all have our own level of ‘acceptable’ risk. The perception is if the risks are lower than the consequences, then shortcuts are usually taken. In this instance the risk is high (fire/poisoning) and hopefully landlords and householders will behave in a safe manner to avoid any fatalities. Get your smoke/CO alarms assessed, replaced or newly installed by serviceteam Ltd. Our smoke detector alarms come with lithium batteries with a life expectancy in the region of 10 years.

Q: What is the Optimum Protection in a Property?
A: You will always be at risk if you’ve not installed any smoke or CO alarms in your property. So to reduce the risk, the detection of smoke or potentially dangerous gases is of paramount importance. We recommend having
smoke detectors installed on every floor of your property.
Q:When is the right time to replace my alarms?
A: Although alarms may get damaged due to various factors over time (especially if portable). Regular checks and changing the battery when alerted to do so will give many years of trouble free protection. The older the alarm the more susceptible the sensors become, so something to bear in mind. Always check with the manufacturer/distributor for further information.
Q: What level of CO activates the alarm?
A: The amount of CO causing the alarm to trip varies, as does the ‘trip’ time. See below a range of times and CO levels that will trip an alarm.
- If exposed to 400 ppm of CO – Alarm response time between 4 to 16 minutes.
- If exposed to 150 ppm of CO, Alarm response time between 10 to 50 minutes.
- If exposed to 70 ppm of CO,Alarm response time between 60 to 240 minutes.
