When are carbon monoxide (CO) detectors required?

In new construction of single-family, two-family and townhouse buildings, carbon monoxide (CO) detectors must be installed outside and not more than 10 feet from each separate sleeping area or bedroom. Where work requiring a permit occurs in existing dwellings that have attached garages or have fuel-fired appliances, CO alarms shall be provided as stated above.
