HOMES ACROSS IRELAND must have a carbon monoxide alarm installed by 1 September, according to new rules being introduced by Minister Phil Hogan.

According to the Irish Times, the move comes with an aim to prevent deaths from the poisonous gas, often described as a silent killer.

The regulations will require householders to fit alarms when new or replacement boilers, fires, heaters and stoves are installed. Builders will have to provide the detectors in new homes.

Alarms cost between €25 and €85.
