how to lower the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning

I'd like to be reassured when it comes to the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. What can I do to make sure that the risk is virtually non-existent?

I’m an electrician so my answer is from an electrical perspective.
The best way to protect yourself from carbon monoxide is to install a carbon monoxide alarm. This will sound if levels of carbon monoxide rise. They can be battery powered or mains wired. They work similar to a smoke detector.
I would also recommend getting gas appliances serviced regularly"

"Hi June

Best way to reduce the risk of carbon monoxide is to make sure your boiler is serviced regularly by a competent person and have a carbon monoxide alarm fitted. Hope this helps.
