Carbon Monoxide


What is Carbon Monoxide?

Carbon Monoxide (also known as CO) is a colourless, odourless, poisonous gas that displaces oxygen in the blood and deprives the heart, brain and other vital organs of oxygen. Large amounts of CO can over-come anyone in minutes with no warning signs. It can cause suffocation or unconsciousness or even death.

The residential Tenancies act 1997 requires that all landlords ensure gas heating appliances are properly maintained in their rental property and are safe to use.
