Carbon Monoxide Mandate

Carbon Monoxide Required in 2007

Illinois state legislation has just approved this mandate requiring Carbon Monoxide detectors in all Illinois residences beginning January 1. That goes for rental units as well.

Here is the IAR blurb on the topic with a few links as well. Tell your clients to get them in now (if they are not already installed).

Beginning Jan. 1, 2007, Illinois law (Public Act 94-741) mandates that every dwelling unit in Illinois must be equipped with at least one carbon monoxide alarm within 15 feet of every room used for sleeping purposes. A dwelling unit would include a single-family residence as well as each living unit of a multiple-family residence and each living unit in a mixed use building. Here are some resources developed via the IAR Advocacy Initiative to help you communicate this information to your clients:
