(a) Every dwelling unit shall be equipped with at least one approved carbon monoxide alarm in an operating condition within 15 feet of every room used for sleeping purposes. The carbon monoxide alarm may be combined with smoke detecting devices provided that the combined unit complies with the respective provisions of the administrative code, reference standards, and departmental rules relating to both smoke detecting devices and carbon monoxide alarms and provided that the combined unit emits an alarm in a manner that clearly differentiates the hazard.
(b) Every structure that contains more than one dwelling unit shall contain at least one approved carbon monoxide alarm in operating condition within 15 feet of every room used for sleeping purposes.
(c) It is the responsibility of the owner
of a structure to supply and install all required

general maintenance for the alarms within the
tenant's dwelling unit or rooming unit, and to notify

writing of any deficiencies that the tenant cannot
correct. The owner is responsible for providing
one tenant per dwelling unit with written information
regarding alarm testing and maintenance.
The tenant is responsible for replacement
of any required batteries in the carbon monoxide alarms in
the tenant's dwelling unit, except that the owner
shall ensure that the batteries are in operating
condition at the time the tenant takes possession of
the dwelling unit. The tenant shall provide the owner
or the authorized agent of the owner with access to
the dwelling unit to correct any deficiencies in the
carbon monoxide alarm that have been reported in writing to
the owner or the authorized agent of the owner.
