Carbon monoxide poisoning is the silent killer when you have a faulty boiler. Carbon monoxide is an invisible gas as it cannot be seen nor can it be smelt. To prevent it from poisoning you, purchase an audible carbon monoxide alarm and know the signs of carbon monoxide poisoning: headaches, dizziness, breathlessness, nausea, collapse and loss of consciousness.

Gas Safety Week is a great initiative to promote awareness for your boiler’s maintenance and safety. You can find more information about the scheme here where they also have more tips for staying safe.
