CO Alarms for Edinburgh Landlords

New guidance in Scotland which takes effect from 1st December 2015, requires carbon monoxide (CO) alarms in all private rented properties. It’s the landlords’ personal responsibility to ensure any property they rent meets this requirement.

CO alarms must have a battery that lasts the life of the product and include an end of life audible warning. So even if you have CO alarms installed check now:

  • Does the existing alarm have a replaceable battery? If it does it’s probably not compliant
  • Does the alarm have an end of life warning indication?
  • Even if your existing CO alarm has a sealed for life battery, what’s the warranty? Does it match the life of the alarm?

"Prompt, efficient service with work carried out to a high standard and all done on schedule. Good to have a company like this to deal with the electrical side of a rented property. No qualms on recommending."

Jim Milne

"I had a really good experience with ideal electrical solutions. They were very quick to attend the flat to carry out PAT testing and an EICR. They liaised politely with my tenant and took the hassle of arranging access away from me. For this piece of work the price was right and the service was great. Thank you."

Anna Crampin

"This was my first time using Ideal Electrical Solutions for a Landlord's electrical safety certificate and I found them courteous and helpful, arriving on time and dealing with the work efficiently. I will certainly use them again."
