Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
HARRIS HEATING encourages you to protect your family from Carbon Monoxide poisoning by installing a CO Detector. Contact us for details.

What is Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?
Carbon Monoxide, is known as the 'silent killer'. Tragically, a number of people in the Ireland die each year from its poisoning fumes and hundreds more are seriously injured, with the elderly and young particularly at risk. The gas has no taste, colour or smell and can kill without warning in a matter of hours. Symptoms, including headaches, dizziness, nausea and exhaustion can often be mistaken for flu, even by medical professionals.

Tips on how to protect yourself and your family
Make sure rooms and heaters are well ventilated.
Have your chimneys and flues checked regularly to prevent them from becoming blocked
Make sure you boiler and heaters are maintained and serviced regularly to ensure they are working properly
Buy a Carbon Monoxide alarm/detector. The detector will measure the concentration of Carbon Monoxide in a room and sound an alarm if the CO concentration is higher than permitted.

Suspect a Carbon Monoxide leak?
Call the emergency line on 1850 20 50 50, turn off the gas supply, open doors and windows and leave the property.
