Regenda is pushing forward with innovative carbon monoxide safety alarms

A North West based housing business has launched a major investment programme to improve carbon monoxide detection across its portfolio.

Regenda is pushing forward with innovative carbon monoxide safety alarms

According to NHS UK, more than 200 people go to hospital with suspected carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning each year, which leads to around 50 deaths. The Regenda Group, which manages over 13,000 properties, is looking to combat that figure through the installation of innovative CO detection alarms.

The new alarm, Aico’s Ei208, allows engineers to quickly extract data from the unit via a smart phone application. A simple to read report is generated immediately, giving details of any incidents along with historical data.

While many private landlords have been required to install both smoke and carbon monoxide alarms since the introduction of new legislation in 2015, there has been no such legislation for providers of social housing. However, Regenda has decided to put customer safety first and roll out the new installations across both its Regenda Homes and Redwing Living properties.

Andrew Grice, Compliance Technical Manager at Regenda Homes, said: “We are passionate about protecting our customers and reducing any risks to the lowest level possible.

“The CO alarm installation programme is a 10 month project and will be carried out by our in house contractor, M&Y Maintenance and Construction, at the time of the gas service.”

Neal Hooper, Managing Director of Aico, said: “We are delighted to see Regenda taking the lead in protecting tenants from the potential dangers of a CO leak.  CO is known as the silent killer; you can’t see it, smell it or taste it. It can be emitted from appliances such as cookers, boilers, wood burners and open fires. Fitting a quality CO Alarm such as our Ei208 offers another level of protection to tenants, keeping them safe in their homes.”

The Regenda Group is one of the North West’s leading housing businesses with over 13,000 properties available for social and affordable rent, shared ownership and outright sale. For more information visit regenda.org.uk
