Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Effective Oct 2014 Ontario Fire Code has officially been amended to protect every Ontario home from carbon monoxide.  Regardless of how you heat your home you must now have at least one working carbon monoxide alarm installed.   Failure to do this will result in fines.

Be sure to check your alarm expiry date, test your batteries annually, and ensure your carbon monoxide alarm has been built before 2008.
