My boiler is in the garage and because my daughter's bedroom is above the g arage, I want to fit a carbon monoxide/ smoke alarm in the garage to ensure the boilers are ok. Challenge is that where the boiler is there is a stee l beam about 1m in from the wall with the boiler one side of it and the res t of the garage the other. The top of the boiler is a little below the leve l of the bottom of the beam.
So.... Where is best to mount the smoke/ co alarm ? 1. Directly above the boilers. Concerned here that the beam will block any smoke generated in the garage as beam hands down around 200 / 300mm 2. On the beam. Concerned here that the CO from boilers would rise and mis s the alarm
