Carbon Monoxide Kills


I’ve been spending a fair amount of time recently showing residential properties to clients who are moving to or relocating within the Ottawa area, and it’s astonishing to me how many houses have old Smoke Detectors and/or no Carbon Monoxide detectors.

Guess what folks - it’s the law in Ontario for every home in to have a working smoke alarm on every floor and outside all sleeping areas. This means leave the batteries in!

As well as having working Smoke Detectors, effective October 15, 2014, it has become mandatory in all residential dwellings to have working Carbon Monoxide Alarms.

If you are purchasing a home, ask for them in your agreement of purchase & sale.

If you are selling your house, by replacing old smoke detectors and installing CO2 detectors and alarms, you will not only be protecting your family and your home, you will also be one step closer to a successful building inspection.

And as usual, If you have any questions about real estate in Kanata, Stittsville or any other area within the Ottawa Real Estate market, drop me a line at joannetibbles@royallepage.ca
