carbon monoxide kills

as we are all building equipment for the home use or within other areas

For the safety of you and your family, it is advisable to fit a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm in your home. Just like a smoke alarm which alerts you to the presence of smoke, a carbon monoxide detector will alert you to the presence of CO.

The difference with CO is that it is invisible and has no smell or taste, so you might not realise it is there.

Smoke alarms do not detect carbon monoxide.


What alarm should I fit? this is uk regs other areas are different

Gas Safe Register recommends the use of audible carbon monoxide alarms. It should be marked to EN 50291 and also have the British Standards' Kitemark or another European approval organisation's mark on it. CO alarms usually have a battery life of up to 5 years.

Fit an alarm in each room with a gas appliance. Always follow the alarm manufacturer’s instructions on siting, testing and replacing the alarm.

Do not use the ‘black spot’ detectors that change colour when carbon monoxide is present, they don’t make a sound. It is important to choose an alarm that will wake you up if you’re asleep, or you may not be aware of early CO symptoms until it is too late.
Where can I get an alarm?

Carbon monoxide alarms cost around £15 and can be purchased from your local DIY store, supermarket or from your energy supplier.

May 2013 in the Uk a family of four where found unconscious in their tent while on a camping holiday, they put a burned out charcoal BBQ inside to warm up the tent. Their 14 yr old daughter was killed by the monoxide. Very sad.

Take it from a manufacturer of Wood, Gas, and Pellet Stoves for 16 years...Safety should ALWAYS be your first priority. Thermodynamics can be an interesting field, but just like avionics, many have died trying. Fire anywhere in your home should NEVER be fully trusted. One weld/seam cracking can turn a nice wood-pellet-gas, or rocket stove into a forge in seconds. Always keep a fire extinguisher close by..especially when testing or prototyping.

I live in Bardstown, KY. I have designed and built alcohol stoves and rocket stoves for years now. I have joined your group to exchange ideas and designs. I have a lot to share and a lot to learn. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of your group.
