This week, we’ve teamed up with Gas Safe Register to offer 20 lucky winners a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm worth £15. Much like a fire alarm, a CO alarm will alert you to the presence of carbon monoxide in your home.

CO poisoning is known as the silent killer. You can’t smell, taste, or see CO gas, so knowing the symptoms could save your life. The six main symptoms of CO poisoning are headaches, dizziness, nausea, breathlessness, collapse and loss of consciousness.

Unsafe gas appliances, such as gas fires, hobs or boilers can produce the highly poisonous gas

With an estimated 4,000 people going to hospital with CO symptoms every year, Gas Safe Register advises households to get their gas appliances checked at least once a year by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

What are the signs that CO is present in your home?

The flame on your hob should be crisp and blue. Lazy yellow or orange flames mean you need to get your gas hob checked. Also, dark staining or soot around or on appliances, pilot lights that frequently blow out, and increased condensation inside windows are also signs of CO in your home.

Gas Safe Register is the registration body appointed by the Health and Safety Executive to manage the list of gas engineers in the UK, Isle of Man and Guernsey.
