Carbon Monoxide Alarms City Of Austin New Ordinance

Carbon Monoxide Alarms - City of Austin New Ordinance - Effective April 01, 2018

The City of Austin has adopted a new Carbon Monoxide Alarm requirement by amending the 2015 International Property Maintenance Code to regulate the minimum maintenance requirements for existing residential and commercial buildings. What does this all mean to you? This ordinance is very important for everyone but specially for you if you are a landlord.  

Beginning April 1, 2018, residential and commercial structures with both sleeping areas (bedrooms) and gas or fuel-burning appliances are required to install and maintain carbon monoxide (CO) alarms. In a dwelling unit, a CO alarm must be installed outside of each separate sleeping area and in the immediate vicinity of each sleeping area. A CO alarm must be installed within a sleeping area if a fuel-burning or solid fuel appliance is located within the sleeping area, a bathroom attached to the sleeping area or a garage attached to the sleeping area.
