Cheapest I could find.

We had our annual boiler inspection from british gas yesterday and he recommended us getting a couple as our flue is quite big and runs through the middle of our house. He then tried selling us 2 of british gas own models which looked quite basic and cost £20 each.

These look much better and cheaper!

might grab a couple after we had our heating redone recently

A Carbon Monoxide alarm may have saved my life; my boiler was fine, but one of the other apartments in my building had a dodgy boiler and the carbon monoxide gas was seeping under its door and through its letterbox, across the hallway, and into my home in the middle of the night and setting my alarm off! We'd have never have known without the alarm...

Get the flue checked by a Gas Safe registered heating engineer with an analyser. British Gas are C**p

That's Christmas sorted.

Nabbed one, good price. Our last one triggered when the boiler was not burning correctly. Might have saved our lives but we were without heating for three days as a chap from National Grid had to come around immediately to seal off the boiler and turn off the gas, and then a long wait for an EOn engineer to turn up to complete repairs.

Just like a British Gas engineer then. Mine is excellent

Quite a few reports of false alarms on this model, wonder if it would it be worth spending the extra £7 on the CO-9D or the Aico Ei208 (made in Ireland)?

If you live in a council house or a housing association property, phone them and they should give you one for free.

They was giving them out for free when my wife was talking to her Mum .

That is for combustible gas - butane or propane, not CO.

I like the CO-9D, as it has a built-in meter showing how much CO is present.

Would you be able to let me know when your wife talks to her mum next time please? Hopefully I'll be able to grab a free one then. Much appreciated.

Just to let you know, asda (instore) have got the model below this, without lcd screen, for £8. Cheapest carbon monoxide alarm i could find

These are great. I have had one of these for over 2 years - no fake alarms, and beeps when the battery needs replaced.

No need to be sarcastic about it .

Thankyou so Much Montblanc! The link you posted is for a Gas detector but exactly what I was looking for months now. Really useful if you have an elderly parent who uses an older gas hob/cooker without a built in thermocouple. Definitely a Life saver!

I also installed a Kidde CO detector a while ago, and it went off after a while. Upon investigation by the gas safety people, the flue seal had become inadequate and CO was getting into the room. The simple act of installing this unit possibly saved my life and the lives of my wife and daughter.

I think they need replacing after 6-7 years, so even if you have one, it's worth checking to see whether you need to replace it.

i got mine for free - not a digital display one but still it seems to work.
