As a landlord, do I need to install a CO Alarm on every level of my unit or just one?
While it is recommended to install one alarm per level, the minimum requirement with this ordinance is one alarm per required rental unit.
Where do I install my alarm, at the floor level or ceiling level?
While Carbon Monoxide is slightly lighter than air, it is best to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations to exact location. It is recommended to install the alarm near the bedrooms, when only installing one alarm.
What alarm do you recommend?
We currently are installing Combination Carbon Monoxide/Photo Electric Smoke Alarms with a ten year sealed lithium battery. However, this is our recommendation only. As long as the alarm meets UL 2034 (Underwriters Laboratories), it is an approved alarm.
