The Kidde K10LLDCO 10 year digital display carbon monoxide alarm is powered a sealed longlife (lithium) battery that will power the alarm for its full 10 year lifespan; coupled with a 10 year manufacturer's warranty for peace of mind. When dangerous levels of carbon monoxide gas have been detected, the K10LLDCO will sound a loud 85dB warning alarm. The digital display shows current CO levels (from 30ppm) and peak CO levels (from 11ppm) when the peak level button is pressed. The K10LLDCO can be left free standing, or wall mounted, and is compatible with the original 10LLCO and 10LLDCO baseplate (if replacing an older model).

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.
The symptoms of CO poisoning can range from mild flu-like symptoms such as headache, drowsiness, confusion, nausea and dizziness to more severe symptoms like breathing difficulties and irregular heartbeat. CO poisoning can ultimately lead to coma and death.

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.

It appears to be happy - which in turn makes me happy. Other than not staring on the side of the cabinet I twice fixed it to with Gorilla mount, it%u2019s ok. It%u2019s now not in its ideal position (according to the user guide) but it%u2019s hopefully wrongly positioned right enough to let me know if there%u2019s an issue so we won%u2019t all die in our beds
