Carbon Monoxide Alarms and Smoke Alarms

Carbon Monoxide Alarms and Smoke Alarms

Posted by on 17 September 0015

The law has changed and carbon monoxide alarms and smoke alarms will need to be installed in rented properties by landlords.  The law, which becomes effective October 2015, could leave landlords out of pocket to the tune of approximately £5,000.

We at Freeboiler feel that this is good practice for landlords and homeowners alike as faulty heating appliances have been responsible for 26 deaths and 670 injuries a year as reported in the Housing Sector and Fire Prevention and Rescue report which was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat Coalition Government.

Since January 2015 Free Boiler Manuals have had 93,971 requests for boiler manuals, so going off these figures an early warning alarm makes good sense.  The alarms are reasonably priced costing about £15 from any DIY outlet.  These alarms are recognised as a possible life saver.  An economical outlay reducing possible risks around the home.
