If you purchased your home prior to July 2009, you may not be aware of a law requiring every home to have one Carbon Monoxide alarm installed per floor in addition to a smoke alarm at the time of sale or rental. You are in luck though; Costco has Co2 alarms for a super deal now through the end of November- $19.99! A small price to pay for your safety and peace of mind!
Maybe you already have one? Let this be a reminder to test the batteries in your existing unit. Also pass this message along to your friends and family that may not know. What happens if your home is for sale and you do not install an alarm? An appraiser will not allow the bank’s loan to process and fund the purchase until the homeowner shows proof that the home has them.
