Private homes need CO guidance

More than half of homeowners and private renters in England and Wales would take a tradesperson’s advice about which type of carbon monoxide (CO) alarm to buy, according to a recent survey conducted by YouGov for Honeywell.

Seventy-six percent of respondents said they would follow the tradesperson’s recommendation, while the same percentage said they would buy an alarm from an engineer servicing an appliance in their home if he or she offered to fit it and the price was reasonable.

Meanwhile, of the 2,882 respondents who acknowledged knowing what CO is, only 47% have CO alarms and just 49% have regular servicing of their domestic appliances with the potential to emit CO.
