The CO detector requirement language would state: “A carbon monoxide alarm meeting a nationally recognized standard such as UL 2034 or IAS 6-96 shall be installed in each dwelling unit of all buildings in accordance with manufacturer’s installation instructions.”
Standard 62.2P, Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings, has undergone a revision and has been submitted for a third review. (See yesterday’s Breaking News item, “Apr. 8, 2002: Proposed ASHRAE Ventilation Standard Undergoing Third Review.”) The review began April 5, 2002 and will run until May 20, 2002. A draft is available online at the ASHRAE website, www.ashrae.org.
