Determinants of CO Exposure in the English Housing Stock: Modelling Current and Possible Future Risks
The proportion of homes in which there is a significant risk of CO poisoning remains unclear. Reducing risk by addressing CO emission sources, such as poor gas appliance installation, may be achieved by regular servicing, awareness of the dangers of CO, and knowledge of how to use appliances correctly. However, the impacts of modifying factors on exposure, such as housing characteristics, location, the presence of potential CO sources, occupant behaviors (including ventilation and CO-generating activities), and occupant demographics are uncertain. Consequently, there remains a major gap in knowledge about how best to identify the buildings and occupants at greatest risk and what measures are most cost-effective in providing protection. This timely and innovative project aims to improve understanding of the determinants of and variation in CO exposure risk in English homes both currently and following energy efficient refurbishment.
