Where am I required to put smoke alarms in my home?
On March 25, 2009 Colorado House Bill 1091, also called the Lofgren and Johnson Families Carbon Monoxide Safety Act, was signed into law. This law requires homeowners and owners of rental property to install carbon monoxide (CO) alarms near the bedrooms (or any other room lawfully used for sleeping purposes) in every home that is heated with fossil fuel, has a fuel-fired appliance, has a fireplace, or has an attached garage. This requirement applies to every home that is sold, remodeled, repaired, or leased to a new tenant after July 1, 2009. This law does not apply to commercial buildings. For permits issued after July 1, 2009, inspections for all interior alterations and additions will include verification of correct installation of smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms.
