THE energy industry’s trade association Energy UK has rolled out a campaign with alarming statistics highlighting the number of homeowners who still haven’t installed a carbon monoxide detector in their property.
Its research, released this month, showed one in three people don’t have a CO alarm in their home, suggesting at least 17 million Brits are at risk from the carbon monoxide poisoning.
But the figure was even more startling with regard to Manchester where 42 percent of households admitted failing to ensure they were safe from the deadly gas in their homes.
Energy UK’s ‘Be Alarmed’ campaign also revealed that many homeowners are still perilously unaware of the warning signs which indicate a boiler is leaking carbon monoxide into their home.
In response, Cosy Abodes Boiler Installation has catalogued all those warning signs in this blog post so you can quickly detect if you or your family are in danger of breathing in the gas dubbed ‘the silent killer’.
