Carbon monoxide poisoning
You are at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning if:
■ your appliance was poorly installed;
■ your appliance is not working properly;
■ your appliance has not been checked for safety or maintained regularly;
■ there is not enough fresh air in the room;
■Heating accessories by trade radiators
■your chimney or flue gets blocked up;
■you allow an engineer who is not on the Gas Safe Register to install or maintain your appliance(s).
There is a particular risk if you sleep in a room where an appliance that is not of the room-sealed type (eg a conventional gas fire) is left burning at night. (Flue outlets for room-sealed appliances are commonly located on an external wall at a low level protected by a cage rather than at or above roof level.)
