Carbon monoxide is a dangerous, poisonous gas that kills hundreds of people each year and injures many more.
It is often referred to as the silent killer because it has no odour or taste and cannot be seen.
Like oxygen, CO enters the body through the lungs during the normal breathing process. It competes with oxygen by replacing it in the red blood cells, thereby reducing the flow of oxygen to the heart, brain and other vital organs. In high concentrations, CO can kill in minutes.
The following symptoms may be related to CO poisoning which all household members should be made aware of:
• Mild Exposure: Slight headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue (often described as ‘flulike’ symptoms).
• Medium Exposure: Severe throbbing headache, drowsiness, confusion, fast heart rate.
Fault / low power pack signal: The unit continuously checks the settings of its sensor and circuitry. If any of these settings are found to be incorrect or if the power pack becomes low then the detector will emit a single chirp once per minute and the Fault LED will flash yellow once per minute for up to 30 days.
If your alarm shows a fault or low power pack signal please contact Let-Leeds on 0113 244 5669 for a replacement Carbon Monoxide Alarm.
To maintain your Fire Angel detector in proper working order, and to ensure that the sensor will last for the lifetime of the product, it is recommended that you:
• Test the sounder, power pack and circuitry of your detector at least once per week by pressing the Test/Reset button briefly (see page 9 of the manual).
