Seems to have great reviews. Haven't seen it cheaper recently as have been looking for one for the past two weeks. Next cheapest I found is £15.84 but doesn't include delivery.

I've got a Worcester green star (can't remember exactly model) and someone said I probably wouldn't need a carbon monoxide alarm. Is this true, and what else could leak carbon monoxide in the home?


No - its not true. Get one.

There are as many CO deaths per year with room sealed appliances as there are with flueless.

The issue here though is that many of the incidents with room sealed appliances tend to start with migration of products of combustion, through wall cavities and windows etc. So having a CO alarm in a kitchen, next to a boiler (say) is not usually overly effective - but still better than nothing...

but to answer your question. Worth having in the same room as seals on appliances do tend to degrade over time - which can also lead to potentially dangerous situations - as is the want of Gas Safe.

Our worcs boiler is sited about 3m below a bedroom window and under the right wind conditions (usually during summer..) with the window open you do get POC comig into a room. Which, whilst not overly dangerous in short bursts - has the potential to cause harm. So i stuck a CO monitor in that bedroom too.

What else could leak CO... anything that burns gas. If you notice any black sooting marks around any gas appliance - or a flame that doesnt appear quite right - then this obviously needs investigating - call someone out straight away and turn the appliance off.

Chances are that your CO alarm wit sit there for years doing absolutely nothing - but for the sake of £30 on a couple of sensors - it’s just not woth the risk.

Corrected it, thanks
This is the cheap obsolete (some would say illegal to sell) replaceable battery version.

Regulation stipulates 7 and 10 year (non removable) batteries only to be sold.

Must be clearing old stock..

Still in my eyes better than nothing! But have seen them as little as £7 in my local homebase for the above reasons..

Never buy "Sealed for Life" products with non-replaceable batteries, especially FireAngel products, its just a con that means you have to replace the complete item when the battery fails, instead of just buying a new battery. My house was fitted with 3 FireAngel "10 Year" smoke detectors in 2012 just before I bought it, guaranteed until the year 2022, yet within 2 years they had all failed. I tried to claim but they wanted "proof of purchase" which of course I didn't have, so I had to pay for 3 new ones.

I must say that I prefer the sealed units. The batteries in the other type seem to need replacing every 12 months - and they are guaranteed to start making the low battery bleeping noise at some unearthly time in the night.
So I use the 7- or 10-year ones and make a note in, my calendar to replace them. None of these long life have yet failed for me - and I have two of the carbon monoxide detectors of the type described by mrwhitelabel (above).

With items like this (7-year CO alarms, 3-year Aldi hardware, Salter 10-year scales) I put the receipt in a ziplok bag and tape it to the underside of the item (or the case it's stored in).
Maybe I should get out more :-)

The firebrigade give these free you ring the 0800 number and they fit them free for you I think they use Fire Angel

Delbert.Grady. I had same problem with Fire angel smoke alarms. Wouldn’t buy one of them again!

Dear All,

Most Carbon Monoxide detectors are good for 5-7 years and should be replaced after that time frame. Typically, the units have a tag or date stamp on the back to indicate it’s age or expiration date.


They are NOT designed to last any longer, thus the sealed units are arguably the best reminder that the unit has come to its end of life.


Stay safe and replace!!

Just get one. I wouldn't care if somebody told me it was impossible for something to leak carbon monoxide. It's not 'supposed' to be possible to die from carbon monoxide in a London hotel these days, because of rules regulations and alarms, but two weeks ago there was a dead Spanish tourist, with his friend now critically ill, in a 4* London Hotel

This is potentially life saving peace of mind for the sake of 3 or 4 pints of beer. Seriously, what is there to think about?

Sorry that's just wrong advice. The sensors in detectors are only effective for periods of time and should be replaced after 7 years anyhow.

I keep the manuals /warranty and receipts in a drawer and have taken a copy of sales receipt pdf uploaded to cloud too so no worries there.
In long term the replaceable batteries are more of a risk as may fail when you need them of don't have battery to hand, cost more over all and may be extended beyond useful life of sensor by people who don't bother to replace them.
That a cost you consider risking life of you and family over ?
Ive had , 7year co + 10year fireangel smoke and heat alarms running in to their third year now no false alarms or failures in that time.

Any suggestions for a combined CO and smoke/fire alarm?

I got a 'teggulus' or something - but it seems to beep at random points even with a new battery. If I push the test button it says 0ppm.

(Including in cases where I'm 100% the only source would of CO would be me.)

While they have improved massively, i always prefer separate alarms. means can place in better locations to suit each one.
Kidde do one, but seems to have a higher fault rate and shorter sensor life of approx 5 years, not seen any sealed battery units for those either so go separates is my advice. Get a 10 year Thermoptek smoke alarm, heat alarm for kitchen and other applicable areas and 7 year co alarm

Nice deal, just bought a fire angel one though for similar price, needed for in the car as the heating works off a chamber wrapped around the exhaust and wanted to check for leaks, glad I didn't use the heating until then as it went off within about 30 seconds, now replaced the pipes and clamps and all is good. Last thing I wanted is carbon monoxide poisoning and getting sleepy/drowsy/confused whilst driving.

I would have gone for this though due to the LCD screen giving PPM for extra assurance.

Cheers - in this case it's for a 'less conventional' situation - basically one room does everything and with very limited space.

There is no requirement for non removable batteries in these alarms. The 2015 regulations stipulate replacement of battery, or alarm,when not working.

Not true
Does anyone have one of these?, i have one and it never seems to read any reading on the LCD display at all always shows '0.00' surely it should be reading a very small amount of Carbon monoxide in the air at all times even if its '0.02' or something, so not sure if mines faulty or not!??

Take it outside and hold it in your car exhaust, with the engine running. That'll soon tell you if its working
