Under the terms of the recently released Building Regulations J (1st October 2010) it is a legal requirement that future stove installations should also have a carbon monoxide detector fitted in the same room. While there is much confusion and concern about the potential problem of carbon monoxide emissions, and the fact that all carbon based fuel burning systems will produce a number of gases including carbon monoxide, a professionally installed and well maintained wood burning or multifuel stove is perfectly safe.
Even though it would be foolish to dismiss the dangers of carbon monoxide, and other gases produced during the burning of carbon based fuels, the release of building regulations J does illustrate the need to have your wood burning stove and multifuel stove installed by a professional and ensure that it is maintained and serviced on a regular basis. However, the simple installation of a carbon monoxide detector will alert you to the minutest particles of carbon monoxide in the air and give you time to take appropriate action.
The Honeywell SF450EN Carbon Monoxide Alarm is arguably the leading carbon monoxide alarm on the market today and is recommended by many of the UK's largest companies and local authorities. This particular Honeywell Carbon Monoxide Alarm is also used by councils in Leicester, Greenwich, London, Hillingdon, Croydon, Elmbridge, Westminster, Warwick, Midlothian, Renfrewshire, Aberdeen, Clackmannanshire, Perth and Kinross and many more. This device will quickly inform you of any carbon monoxide in the atmosphere allowing you to take the relevant action.
What effect does carbon monoxide have on the body?
In simple terms, when inhaled, carbon monoxide reduces the ability of blood to circulate oxygen to various tissues around the body which increases the stress upon your heart. Side effects of carbon monoxide poisoning include fatigue, headaches, dizziness, nausea, confusion and disorientation and at the extreme end of the spectrum, unconsciousness and death can occur. It is the very fact that carbon monoxide is itself an odourless and a colourless gas which makes the situation even more dangerous and further highlights the requirement for a fully working carbon monoxide meter.
Protecting yourself from carbon monoxide poisoning
Thankfully the stoves available today are manufactured to the higest safety standards and able to reduce the amount of gases created and in many cases these gases are even burned off within the system itself. The flue system and ventilation of your stove is vital to its safety and your safety therefore you should never install a stove yourself and always depend upon professional installers. Blockages in your chimney, flue system or other ventilation routes can cause problems with your stove and under certain conditions could increase the likelihood of carbon monoxide seeping into your environment.
While building regulations recommend that future stove installations must include a carbon monoxide detector it does make sense to purchase a detector for existing stove installations. Carbon monoxide is a naturally occurring gas which is not wholly associated with wood burning stoves as we mentioned above. However, in order to ensure you get the best use out of your stove, in a safe environment, we strongly recommend using professional installers, using the highest quality fuel and also ensuring that your system is serviced at least annually. A carbon monoxide detector will act as a vital backup in the unlikely event of problems with your stove.
