    Question Maryland Will Enact A New...

    Carbon monoxide law 1 January 2008. Will your home comply?"

    I just read that headline on the channel 4 NBC news website, but its the first I've heard of it. Any of you Marylanders out there know about this? Just wondering what they are really trying to "enact".

    It appears to only affect new construction.

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

    In NJ you can not sell your home with out having a CO alarm near sleeping areas. You also have to have a smoke detector on every floor and a fire extinguisher mounted near the kitchen.

    Interesting. I just saw a TV commercial (4 - WRC) for Kidde with that family that lost two boys and the voice over at the very end says something like "install a carbon monoxide detector - it's the law".

    I'm in Anne Arundel County if it matters.

    in NYC I know you needed to have one installed inside your house and by the bedrooms.

    IN NC i think but im not sure that they now come basically standard cause this is a new construction house that im living in and they are in the hallway and in the bedrooms.

    Illinois passed legislation effective January 2007 requiring CO detectors in all homes,
    Section 10. Carbon monoxide detector.
    (a) Every dwelling unit shall be equipped with at least one
    approved carbon monoxide alarm in an operating condition within
    15 feet of every room used for sleeping purposes. The carbon
    monoxide alarm may be combined with smoke detecting devices
    provided that the combined unit complies with the respective
    provisions of the administrative code, reference standards,
    and departmental rules relating to both smoke detecting devices
    and carbon monoxide alarms and provided that the combined unit
    emits an alarm in a manner that clearly differentiates the
    hazard.
