One of our best sellers at Kilkenny Electrical Wholesale is our Carbon Monoxide Alarms. Our Carbon Monoxide Alarms are made in Ireland and come with a long life 10 year lithium battery (sealed in). They also have built in “AudioLink” technology which comes with a Free downloadable App. Once downloaded on your phone the App will give an alarm status report when the phone is held up to the alarm.
Carbon Monoxide Alarms became compulsory in homes from 1st September 2014 to prevent deaths from the poisonous gas known as the “silent killer”.
The building regulations require householders to ensure alarms are fitted when new or replacement boilers, fires, heaters and stoves are installed. Building firms are required to make sure the alarms are fitted in new homes.
Carbon Monoxide Alarms are required to be located in rooms where appliances are fitted, as well as in or near bedrooms. They are also mandatory in habitable rooms where a chimney is attached to an heat-producing appliance. Latest figures indicate that about six people a year die as a result of preventable carbon monoxide poisoning.
The colourless, odourless and poisonous gas can cause illness or death. When inhaled into the body it combines with the blood, preventing it from absorbing oxygen.
It can arise when a fossil fuel fails to combust properly due to an inadequate supply of air as a result of improper insulation of heating appliances or faulty stoves.
