New Residential Building Codes for Ohio Includes Carbon-Monoxide Detectors

Start here

I am excited for some of the new home construction building codes for Ohio!  These new building codes will become effective January 1, 2013.

Per an article on www.TheNews-Messenger.com some of the new home building code requirements for Ohio will be:

1) Carbon-monoxide detectors must be installed outside each bedroom in a home that uses gas or propane or includes an attached garage.

2) Homes must meet an air-tightness standard that includes a blower-door test.

3) At least 75 percent of light bulbs in new must be high-efficiency.

I know that these new building codes are going to cost the homeowner more money upfront however the energy requirements should allow the homeowner to recoup some of the money over time.  More importantly the safety factors that have been built into the new building code are invaluable to your families safety.

Stay Safe!
