   (b)   Required.
      (1)   The owner of each occupied single-unit, two-unit, and townhouse dwelling unit containing a fuel burning appliance or attached garage must install carbon monoxide detection and warning equipment.
      (2)   Carbon monoxide alarms or detectors must be installed as follows:
         (A)   outside of each separate dwelling unit sleeping area and in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms; and
         (B)   on every occupiable level of a dwelling unit, including basements, excluding attics and crawl spaces.
      (3)   A carbon monoxide alarm or detector must:
         (A)   be located on the wall, ceiling, or other location as specified in the manufacturer’s published instructions that accompany the unit; and
         (B)   be installed and maintained under NFPA 720.
   (c)   Equipment.
      (1)   Single station carbon monoxide alarms.
         (A)   A single station carbon monoxide alarm must be battery operated or must receive its primary power from the building wiring system.
         (B)   A plug-in device may satisfy this requirement if it is securely fastened to the structure and installed as directed by the manufacturer’s installation instructions.
         (C)   A hard wired or plug-in carbon monoxide alarm must be equipped with battery back-up.
      (2)   Combination smoke detector/carbon monoxide alarms.
         (A)   A carbon monoxide alarm may be combined with a smoke detector if the device complies with this Section, Section 22-96, and applicable State law.
         (B)   A combination smoke detector/carbon monoxide alarm must receive its primary power from the building wiring when that wiring is served from a commercial source, and when primary power is interrupted, must receive power from a battery.
         (C)   A combination smoke detector/carbon monoxide alarm must have permanent wiring.  The only disconnecting switch allowed is that which is required for over-current protection. Smoke alarm features of a combination smoke detector/carbon monoxide alarm must be interconnected.
   (d)   Exceptions. A dwelling unit that does not itself contain a fuel-burning appliance or have an attached garage, but is located in a building with a fuel-burning appliance or an attached garage, does not need to be equipped with a carbon monoxide alarm if:

      (2)   Notwithstanding Section 26-16, a violation of this Section is a Class C violation.
