What are the codes for smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors in the home?
Category: Change of Ownership (Resale/Re-rental)
Smoke detectors must be placed on every level, including basement, of the home. If the attic is a finished living space or someone is sleeping in that room, a smoke detector must be installed.
Carbon Monoxide detectors must be placed within 10 feet of all bedroom doors.
Both are required to pass a housing inspection. Both can be either plug in or battery operated.
