CO detectors mandatory after July 1

Tuesday, June 28, 2022 by Tai Moses

The Development Services Department wants all builders to know that new carbon monoxide detector rules are just around the corner. Starting this Friday, July 1, “carbon monoxide detectors will be required for all new Mechanical Change-Out permits, except for projects involving only electric-powered equipment.” These new requirements “apply to installation, alteration or repair of all fuel-fired mechanical systems.” City inspectors will be checking for CO detectors for all projects that were permitted on or after July 1, and, “Because this is a critical life and safety issue, there are no exemptions or alternatives to compliance with this requirement.” Any questions? Contact the building inspectors.
