Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarms mandatory in all homes as of April 15, 2015

Posted to Fire Rescue, News & Notices, Services on Apr 13, 2015

By April 15, most homes in Ontario must be equipped with working carbon monoxide detectors.

The new Ontario regulations require single-family homes, and any residential building of six units or less, to have the detectors installed near sleeping areas if the building has fuel-fired appliances, a fireplace or an attached garage. The alarms must be able to be heard in a sleeping room with the door closed.

CO alarms range in price from approximately $26 to over $100 depending on whether they are hard-wired, battery operated or plug-in and whether they have additional features (i.e. battery back-up, digital display, etc.). The average mid-range plug-in/battery back-up model is between $35 and $40 per unit. Landlords and home owners will be responsible for complying with the requirements under the Fire Code.

For more information visit the Fire Marshal's CO Alarm Q&A Page.
