The Firehawk CO7BD carbon monoxide detector features a 7 year sealed longlife battery that will not require to be changed during the lifespan of the alarm. The CO alarm is suitable for any room in the home which contains any fuel burning appliances such as gas cookers, boilers and open fires. For extra peace of mind the detector also comes with a 7 year manufacturer's warranty. The clear digital screen shows the current and peak levels of carbon monoxide in a home or when travelling, as the detector is also suitable for camping, caravanning and boats, making it the ideal travel companion for CO safety. The digital screen cycles through the current carbon monoxide concentration in parts per million (ppm), the peak CO level in the last 12 hours (ppm), and the carboxyhaemoglobin (COHb) percentage so that you can ensure you are safe from dangerous CO gas.

CO detectors should be installed near potential sources of carbon monoxide, essentially any fuel-burning appliances such as boilers, cookers and ovens, fireplaces (both open and enclosed burners), and portable generators. As you are likely to be most affected by CO in areas of your home that you spend the most time in it is advisable to install alarms in those areas as well, such as the living room and bedrooms. It is also worth noting that while one detector is better than no detectors at all, larger homes may require several detectors to cover the property fully.
Also note that carbon monoxide has been proven to spread into neighbouring properties through open windows and, in semi-detached or terrace houses, through loft spaces. If your property has an attached garage with a connecting door through to the house, it is recommended to fit a CO alarm inside the house leading from that doorway.
Battery powered carbon monoxide alarms can typically be installed wall-mounted or left free-standing on flat, level surface.
Do not install CO alarms within 3 metres of doors or windows, above radiators, or immediately close to anything that gives off steam or fumes like a cooker or shower room. Similarly, it is not recommended to install detectors in dusty areas such as workshops or garages.
For more information, please check the manufacturer's instructions – you can download the PDF manual from the relevant product page on our site. You can also watch our video guide to positioning CO detectors.
Most legislation advises at least one carbon monoxide alarm is fitted near new or replacement fuel-burning appliances that are fixed installations, though rented properties (both social and private sector) often require CO alarms be provided by landlords even if no appliances are being installed or replaced. Examples include boilers, coal fires, wood burners, and gas ovens and cookers, though an exception is often made in legislation for gas appliances solely used for cooking.
However, any and all materials can give off CO when burning, including gas cookers. Carbon monoxide can also spread from neighbouring properties or outside sources such as vehicle fumes. Because of this, Safelincs strongly recommends the installation of carbon monoxide detectors in every home, and also at head-height in bedrooms to protect occupants while sleeping.
