As of Oct 2010 a carbon monoxide alarm became mandatory for every new stove installation. An auditory alarm is sounded when the CO level rises above a base level. We supply the Honeywell CO alarm. Honeywell is probably the best known name in household electrical controls.
Carbon Monoxide is a product of incomplete combustion - a lot of the flames you see in your stove are in fact carbon monoxide oxidising to carbon dioxide. A little carbon monoxide will always be present in the flue gases from a stove, more if you are burning wet wood or slumber burning.
Carbon monoxide is invisible, odourless, and tasteless. If you are exposed to it long term or to high levels in the short term it can have health implications and be dangerous. If there is a high level of carbon monoxide in your house then it is a sign that something is up with your stove installation. So one of the best ways of reducing the risk of carbon monoxide is to make sure that your chimney is well designed and installed in by someone who knows what they are doing.
