The test button on a CO alarm only tests the battery, circuit and horn.
A Detectagas® test is sensor inclusive and the only way to fully ensure that your CO alarm is still sensing gas.
Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that has no smell or taste. Breathing it in can make you unwell, and it can kill if you’re exposed to high levels. Every year there are around 25 deaths from accidental carbon monoxide poisoning in England and Wales.
how to test your CO alarm
Having a carbon monoxide (CO) detector in your home can help protect you from carbon monoxide poisoning, but only if it works properly. Checking your detector regularly will help make sure your family is safe. You should test the sensor on the unit annually with a calibrated test spray, and check the alarm circuitry once a month by pressing the test button.
