The silent killer in your home, and what you can do to protect yourself.

California's Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act of 2010 (SB183) requires that all residential property be equipped with a carbon monoxide detector when the property has… a) "fossil fuel" burning heater or appliance, b) fireplace, c) or an attached garage.

The law provides that all single-family homes, including individually-owned condos, (owner or tenant occupied) must be equipped with a detector as of July 1, 2011. All other residential units (multi-family apartments and condominiums) must be equipped with a detector on or before January 1, 2013.

If you are a landlord you need to install or provide one.
