California Senate Bill 183 was signed into law which requires the installation of Carbon Monoxide detectors in rental units, and dwellings that are being transferred (sold) after July 1, 2011.

July 1, 2011, Carbon Monoxide detectors will be REQUIRED in houses that are being sold if they have any of the following:
  • Any gas appliances such as a gas stove, gas furnace, gas fireplace, gas water heater.
  • A fireplace
  • An attached garage (even if there are no gas appliances in the house!). Cars emit CO
  • ANY rental dwelling.
  • As of January 1, 2013, ALL houses that meet the criteria listed above will be required to have Carbon Monoxide detectors. Even those that are not being sold will be required to have them just like smoke detectors.
