WIN: Nest Protect Alarm worth £109

Ok, this is a slightly different post from me today. It’s not everyday that I write about the risk of carbon monoxide in the home (thank goodness, not sure how many of you would be here if I did 🙂 ) but it’s actually a really important thing to talk about so please stick with me.

We have recently fitted alarms throughout our home and had our chimney swept in preparation for winter and it’s made me realise how much more vigilant I am about testing smoke/carbon monoxide alarms, now we have Violet with us. Knowing it’s a silent killer is one scary prospect but there are ways to protect yourself and your family. Did you know it’s actually your pets that can show the signs of carbon monoxide before humans do?

 

Before we had Violet, I’m not sure I would have been able to tell you what the signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are. So, if you are not sure, here is what you need to know:

 

 

If there was a carbon monoxide (CO) leak in your home… would you know what to do? Worryingly, recent research has uncovered that 43% of the UK wouldn’t know what to do, and more than a third of UK homes still don’t have a CO alarm fitted.

So, this giveaway is here to lend a hand as I am giving away a super modern Nest Protect Alarm (worth £109) which detects smoke and Carbon Monoxide in your home. It gives a vocal alarm which makes it really clear (things like ‘THERE IS SMOKE IN YOUR KITCHEN!’) it also links to your phone and smart home, so it’s a true superhero product you need in your home today.

To enter just fill out the below:

GOOD LUCK!

Giveaway open to UK Residents only.
