A good thing to have, that's certain. But it's been posted before. Twice. (Try search "carbon alarm")

Apart from me posting twice in error I did search and couldn't see that this deal has already been posted.

Too soon?

Does anyone know if I need one of these - my house is electric only, no gas? X

Bought this today for £5

Electric only - you don't really need one unless you use oil/wood or coal heating, when you will.
If you have an attached garage it can be worthwhile - fumes from car can & do kill too.

Why all the irrelevant 'Kiddie' titling in the OP and not the seller, other than to scare people?

Kidde is the alarm's brand.

Incidentally, the device may also be useful for folks to take on holiday whether in static caravans, chalets, etc etc

The model of alarm the OP is informing us about is a kidde lifesaver carbon monoxide alarm. Some people (like myself) always Google items on HUKD, firstly to see any reviews and specifications and secondly to see how good the deal is. not putting the information would be like posting a deal for a car with no make or model and expect people to know if it is a good deal. As for information on the seller, it says Asda instore......how much more info do you need?

I have a wood burning stove, do I need one of these?

Good price if you can get it.... There still £12.50 online (which is still a decent price), i paid £19.99 for mine :-P

Online item with a better description etc:

About 40 people die in a year across England and Wales from accidental carbon monoxide poisoning from a variety of sources, the HPA is warning as part of a winter campaign to raise awareness of the hazard.

Dr John Harrison of the HPA said: “Many of these deaths take place between November and February due to faulty fossil fuel and wood burning appliances, and are therefore preventable.

In addition to the deaths, the HPA said some 4,000 people need to be treated in accident and emergency for CO poisoning.

The HPS is also advising that all households should have an audible carbon monoxide alarm which met European standards.

So in answer to your question.....yes!

Just read the online description myself and didn't realise the sensors only had a 7 year life.....................When did i buy mine? oO

The link does not take you directly to the KIDDE product.

This has to be "post of the week"

WHY? I suggest you read Davidclacks post

Heat added, but why on earth don't manufacturers of boilers/gas fires give you one for free when you purchase one of their products.

It's the costs!

Cheap. I have a load of these and paid around £13 each for them. Must have these where there is a boiler and gas / real fire. Plus we have one in the kids room and the bedroom above where the real fire is.

Good find, heat from me, excellent price for a life saver

If you staying overnight/several days in an Apartment / Holiday Let that you haven't used before or cheap digs, or hasn't be used for some time (farmhouse lets etc)- its not a bad thing to take one on with you, especially if they have Gas Central Heating/Central Boiler room.

Ventilation shafts/Services access hatches are often connected between Apartments, which maybe connected to a basement boiler room. Might not be top of the list of items to take, but if you do start getting headaches/nausea, its often blamed on the booze, so you might not realise its Carbon Monoxide Poisoning.

The downside is a false positive, might make you paranoid and ruin your holiday.


Can somebody give me some advice please? - We've got a gas boiler in a utility room next to the main kitchen and then we have the gas wall heaters in the rooms in the rest of the house. We have our gas meter in a cupboard in the kitchen. Do you need one of these carbon-monoxide alarms just in the room where the gas boiler is or do you have one in each room where the wall heaters are? Thank you for any advice.

Any room where you burn fuel should have one of these ideally. Gas cookers, boilers, anything that burns wood, coal, gas, oil etc. Disposable BBQ's taken into tents killed at least 3 people in the last year. Electric equipment doesn't burn anything so does not produce carbon monoxide gas.

So it would be just where the gas boiler is in my house, is that correct? Would I need one as well where the gas meter is - can carbon monoxide gas come out of a faulty gas meter? I take it that the radiators fixed in the other rooms do not produce carbon monoxide gas? Sorry, for the questions, but have only recently had my old electric storage heaters taken out and replaced by gas central heating, so still not up on it all as regards using a carbon monoxide alarm. Thank you.

Ive just been to Asda at Benton near Newcastle and they don't have any and haven't been on sale either. Typical

Due to cost and lifespan (they only last 7-8 years) I would ensure that you have at least one near your boiler and if your heaters in your rooms actually burn gas then put one in your hallway upstairs & main bedroom.
These are only suggestions as each house is different.
Our house is open plan, boiler in kitchen detector outside kitchen, so hopefully will alert a problem in kitchen, dining and living room. Nothing that can produce gas upstairs so only smoke alarm fitted.
Hadn't thought about taking one on holiday but that's a good idea.

Probably only needs a methane detector

Cheers for the editing, had a bit of trouble setting it up on the phone, hence the typo in the manufactures name....

That's a really good idea, a bit like electrical items not coming with plugs years ago, yet seems odd now.

Even if the manufacturers did factor the cost in, can't see anyone being concerned about the slight additional cost, especially as the retail mark up wouldnt be needed.

These were £12.50 in store in Huddersfield.
