Protect your family from the ‘silent killer’ with a carbon monoxide alarm
Our mission is to keep you and your family safe and warm year round. We, at CORGI HomePlan, service hundreds of thousands of boilers every year and our commitment to keeping the nation’s boilers safe is at the heart of everything we do.
Each year in the UK, around 50 people die from the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning. 4,000 people go to A&E (Source: Gas Safety Trust) due to the effects of the gas and 200 are hospitalised (Source: NHS, 2014).
Our research reveals that, shockingly, 1 in 10 of us has suffered carbon monoxide poisoning (Source: CORGI HomePlan, 2015). So why does not everyone know about the silent killer and worse, why are families not protecting themselves?
Less than half of us even have a CO alarm in our home and a third of people think you can smell, touch or taste the fatal gas - WRONG.
Carbon monoxide is caused in the majority of cases because of poorly maintained or incorrectly installed household appliances and research from Gas Safe Register shows that 1 in 9 boilers in the UK are unsafe. Even in minor doses, carbon monoxide poisoning can cause long term health problems. Surely it’s time to protect you and your family?
