Thanks to the lovely people at EI Electronics, I have two Carbon Monoxide alarms (one each for two people) to offer to my readers.
Ei Electronics Ei204 Carbon Monoxide alarm is a portable battery powered alarm that detects both high and low levels of Carbon Monoxide and can be placed anywhere around the home. The alarm uses an electrochemical cell sensor which checks Carbon Monoxide concentration in the air every 50 seconds. Its portability also means that even whilst asleep the Ei204 can help protect you and your family from the dangers of Carbon Monoxide. The Ei204 features a low and high Carbon Monoxide level indicator and horn to warn users of any Carbon Monoxide in the atmosphere. The Ei204 alarm from Ei Electronics carries third party approvals (EN52091), is kitemarked to British fire safety standards and is available online or at Homebase stores for £24.95

  1. Its one of my fears as well so thanks for the comp

    Thing to look out for

    Check the colour of gas flames: if it’s blue it’s normal, if it’s orange or yellow this could be an indication of a problem with the appliance in question.

    Can protect your home by buying a carbon monoxide alarm!

  3. Look for discolouration and staining around pilot lights and fire places as this is often a sign of the incomplete burning of fuel.

  4. Look for discolouration and staining around pilot lights and fire places. Important as it shows that fuel is not burning correctly.

  6. We have real fires, didn't realise there was a danger from there, you just assume its gas that is the danger. I'm going to book a chimney sweep asap! Thanks for the info and the giveaway.

    We would love these as OH was talking about these the other day as he is wondering if that is what could be causing his chest/breathing problems
