Carbon Monoxide Alarms

On April 7, 2003, the NJ Register listed the adoption of regulations that will require the owners of one and two family homes to install carbon monoxide alarms when their homes are sold.  Local Enforcing agencies that are currently inspecting one and two family homes prior to sale to ensure the proper placement of smoke detectors will also be checking for these required carbon monoxide alarms.  When the detectors and alarms are found to be properly in place, Certificates of Smoke Detector and Carbon Monoxide Alarm Compliance will be issued.

Alarms may be battery-operated, shall be listed in accordance with UL-2034, and must be installed in the immediate vicinity of sleeping areas per NFPA-720.
