Ideally, you should have carbon monoxide detectors placed throughout your home, as you do smoke alarms. You should place a CO detector in each major area of your home: in the kitchen, in your living/dining room, in your bedrooms.

Definitely.

Ideally one in each room you have a fuel burning appliance, especially if that room is a bedroom.

Some houses won't need any, some will need several.

A few years ago I lived in a student house where the boiler was essentially outside in what was probably once an outdoor toilet. The cooker was electric and we had nothing in the house that used gas, so we didn't need any.

I'd put one near your boiler, one in your kitchen (gas cooker?), and one in every other room with a gas appliance such as a fireplace. I think people use them with wood burning fireplaces and such too, but as I've never lived anywhere with such a thing I've never looked into it.

For the sake of £8 I would go with these ones

More info on CO http://www.carbonmonoxideinfo.co.uk

Essentially you want to be putting these where CO could be produced, i.e. rooms with fuel burning appliances. But the fact it can travel through walls from neighbours makes it a trickier one and why it's suggested to install in common areas. Also, if you're getting these, make sure you test regularly :)

Final piece of info is it appears these have been discontinued and are superseded by a newer model. That's certainly not saying they won't work. Kidde are a very reputable company when it comes to fire safety.

Can't comment on those but have to warn that Which? recently tested a variety of CO alarms and found the cheaper ebay/Amazon third party ones unreliable - which arguably makes them more dangerous than having none (if it lulls you into a false sense of security).

Surely if you only have your boiler and gas hob in your kitchen, you only need one?

Yes if you have both in the one room one would be sufficient,

Good price we have one in every one that has a fireplace

Thanks, reserved for collection today. We have a stove in the living room and the boiler in the loft. Perfect timing as the old one is about to expire.
#14
the manufacturer name just looks out of place on this.

The picture on Argos's website is wrong. Mine was branded as Lifesaver and the model is 5CO. The pack does mention it was designed and manufactured for Kidde Safety Europe though. Has a Kitemark and 7 year warranty so kept it. Also, reviews for this model are generally good.
