Re: Carbon monoxide in cellar?

For Pete's sake please open the boiler room window! You can lock the internal door. Carbon monoxide is poisonous, odourless, and will kill you! The heating engineer told you what is happening, and now you are disregarding his advice.

In Jumbo, or any other hardware store, you can buy steel hooks which hold the metal grill down and stop burglars. These hooks need to be bolted to the walls. It isn't an easy job, and you might need to hire a powerful electric drill.

Another possibility is to drill a few one centimetre wide holes from the boiler room to the outside, allowing permanent ventilation. Maybe you need to ask a local builder to do this?
