Any gas heater which burns the room air lowers the oxygen content!

If its not working correctly it can produce CO which can poison you.

If its a modern one it will have an oxygen depletion device which will turn it off if the oxygen in the room gets too low. We dont know how modern it is!

Unfortunately many people whilst they may have vents they like to cover them and then the poison problems begin.

Of course these heaters also produce about 2 li of water vapour an hour and so that can cause condensation.

CO alarms have a "life" of between 5 and 7 years. Make sure the "dispose of" date stamp allows for a reasonable usgae time. I have just been offered some bargain alarms, but are 2 years out of date. I've bought a load to give away with new installs, but this type of thing ends up in the market at normal prices, being sold to the unsuspecting and ill informed
