We are pleased to announce that our 2030-DCR carbon monoxide (CO) alarm has been awarded a Which? Best Buy award. Having a Which? endorsement, which almost three in four consumers say is likely to influence the product they buy or the service they choose, is a testament to the product’s high performance. 

Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless gas which, when levels get too high, can be deadly, and, without a proper detection system in place, you may never know if carbon monoxide has built up. Having a high quality CO alarm in your home is paramount. If you are looking for a carbon monoxide alarm, and unsure of the best model to choose, our 2030-DCR carbon monoxide alarm is a great option and has undergone rigorous tests for its award.

To determine the alarms that can be relied on in an emergency, Which? independently tests CO models for the following:

  1. How well an alarm detects carbon monoxide (by exposing it to four different levels of the gas)
  2. How loud the alarm is (it should reach at least 85db at a metre away)
  3. The safety of the instructions and where they recommend you install your CO detector
  4. Whether it’s just as reliable months down the line
  5. Whether it can recover after high exposure to CO
  6. Ultimately, whether or not you should buy it

Our 2030-DCR alarm has an electro-chemical sensor and constantly monitors the environment for carbon monoxide. Out of the 28 times it was tested, the alarm sounded every time. Which? found that it was ‘reliable, sensitive and loud’, and was able to activate when exposed to both high and low concentrations of the gas. You can find the full Which? review here.
