Carbon Monoxide Alarms
V2C are currently working with Colin Laver and Aico to install Aico Carbon Monoxide (CO) alarms in tenant’s properties to ensure they are fully protected from CO.
CO is an invisible, odourless gas which can be produced by any fuel burning appliance and can be very harmful.
The alarms will be fitted during a gas heating service in most circumstances to minimise disruption and will work independently from the smoke alarms that are already installed.
The CO alarms have a unique sound of three beeps then a slight pause, repeated, which helps distinguish them from a smoke alarm sound which is a constant rapid beeping. Please familiarise yourselves with the sound difference – press and hold the test button on an alarm to test it.
N.B. that the CO alarms are designed to detect CO only and so will not detect a gas leak.
