Carbon monoxide can be a byproduct of the incomplete combustion of natural gas, wood, or any carbon-based fuel. It is a clear, odorless, and tasteless gas, and can cause death within minutes, if gone undetected. Extended exposure to low levels (sometimes not detected by inexpensive carbon monoxide detectors) can cause long-term health problems. Carbon monoxide detectors with a minimum sensitivity of 30 ppm and with no time delay should be installed at locations where natural gas appliances or fireplaces are used. Massachusetts Home Inspections also recommends installing carbon monoxide detectors and smoke alarms on each habitable floor of multi-story structures and within 10 feet of entrances to all bedrooms.
If you are purchasing or selling a home, Massachusetts law requires that all residential structures be equipped with approved Carbon Monoxide detectors and smoke detectors upon sale or transfer. The local fire department will issue a certificate to prove compliance. The Seller is always responsible for obtaining this certificate before close of escrow.
