Many new motorhomes and caravans are supplied with a smoke detector. How many of you reading this have a carbon monoxide detector fitted? I purchased my First Alert carbon monoxide detector last year upon good, sound advice from a fellow motorhomer.

Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that  is colourless, odourless and tasteless to humans yet can be fatal. My understanding is that carbon monoxide can be given off if, for example, you have a faulty gas appliance. Unfortunately, without the aid of a carbon monoxide detector, you may never be the wiser until it is too late. When gas burns, the gas and oxygen mix together and if all is well, a blue flame will be present. If there is insufficient oxygen in the mix, the flame would be orange. This suggests that carbon monoxide may be given off. In this scenario, an on board  First Alert carbon monoxide detector would sound the alarm. In the time that I have owned the First Alert carbon monoxide detector, the battery has performed well and I also test the device once per week.

Where to buy a First Alert carbon monoxide detector?

There are various makes of carbon monoxide detector available. More details of the First Alert brand are available on the Amazon link below.

Why not also purchase a smoke detector at the same time as ordering your First Alert carbon monoxide detector?
