​I suppose if you put it in the house over the road it isn't going to protect yours.
excellent price. paid about 3 times that a few weeks ago!
not nation wide. 12 in mine
Great price to help protect you from this silent killer.
Great price - I believe Costco also have some on offer at around £8 inc. VAT this month if you can't find this deal.
2 bought from Pyle
Bargain
Great price! I recently shelled out £30 for 2, shame this didn't come along sooner
Can't stress enough how important these are. I never thought of buying one till my friends wife passed away from a monoxide leak in a faulty boiler 2 years ago. Now it's totally worth the few pound to have it covered
Beaware the sensors on all CO alarms have a limited shelflife and need replaced every so often.

Mine has a "use-by" date on so I guess that is when it will have expired.

A lot of countries have a law which means you must have smoke + CO detectors installed and working. I really wish the UK would follow and do the same. They're so cheap for what they do, they are a must.

Mine went out of date recently and had to replace. Aldis got them there today £12. So bargain for £4 if if only got a years date on them, it saves a life.
Front of the box states 7 year warranty so must have a decent shelf life.... I'll check later.
Hot if you can get them but they were full price at the Skem Asda
12 quid here in oldham
Everybody should have one of these, I don't understand why it's not a legal requirement for everybody. I think it's a requirement in rented housing. Or at least all of the places I've rented have had one.
Usually CO detectors have a 7 year sensor life and a non-replacable 7 year life battery.
it's a legal requirement as of October in all rented accommodation, unfortunately unless they are wired in like smoke alarms in new houses I don't suppose you can force people to have them.we have three in the house we rent out, one in each room that has a gas appliance

These should be fitted at head high for proper protection, so in a lounge around head hight when you are sitting and in a bedroom around the hight of your pillows. Carbon monoxide doesn't rise like smoking so no good putting them on a ceiling.
We've got two, one in the utility room with the boiler and one half way up the stairs to wake us just in case we don't hear the one downstairs. I've had some family nearly die from it before so we're extra cautious.

Bit more info here from the rear of the packaging.

Alarm provides a minimum of 7 years continuous use, alarm will alert you when its time to replace.

It's only a legal requirement on solid fuel, coal etc. A standard gas boiler doesn't fall under the new rules.

Not true for all the UK , In Scotland it is law where gas appliances are boilers gas fires included and has been since 2013 and one required per room also.

I got one of these a few months back for my sister for £8 - and another a couple of weeks ago for myself at full price of £12. Should have waited.

I never realised until recently that CO and smoke alarms have an expiry date - my last CO alarm shut itself off after 7 years and didn't even give me the option to keep using it - continuously made some triple-chirp sound.

true to a point but landlords has to install on every story

These Regulations place duties on a “relevant landlord” of a “specified tenancy” of residential premises in England to ensure:
1. a smoke alarm is equipped on each story of the premises which is wholly or partly used as living accommodation;
2. a carbon monoxide alarm is equipped in any room which is used wholly or partly as living accommodation and contains a solid fuel burning combustion appliance; and
3. the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are in proper working order at the start of any new tenancy.
If co2 doesn't rise and these are supposed to situated at head height whats the point of fitting them in upstairs bedrooms?

My utility room where the boiler is, i've got one of these sat on the window ledge. 2 of the kids bedrooms are situated near enough above the utility room should i get them for their bedrooms as well?

Complete twaddle, Carbon Monoxide does rise;
"Carbon monoxide (CO) is slightly lighter than air, so carbon monoxide alarms are effective when placed on the ceiling or high up on a wall. There’s a myth that all carbon monoxide alarms should be installed lower on the wall because carbon monoxide is heavier than air. In fact, carbon monoxide is slightly lighter than air and diffuses evenly throughout the room."
