    Starting to write some electrical articles. Thought I would link to here to see if there is some interest. If nothing else, it gets the word out.

    The first one is about GFCIs http://trustedpros.ca/articles/elect...ct-and-fiction

    The second is about smoke and CO detectors http://trustedpros.ca/articles/alarm...ors-save-lives

    They are written pretty generically however are more Canadian in nature.

    Cheers

    I did not know that Ontario had passed the required for carbon monoxide detectors in homes. It is a good requirement. Hope they send out that notice to everyone. Is there any direction on where these should be placed and if every floor requires one?

    That has just been past in the last week or so. It is now up to the individual municipalities to add it to there local building codes I think.

    Yeah... as Chris said, we will have to see how they amend the OBC and potentially the NBC in the future for this as in Canada these does not fall under the CEC or the OESC.

    I think any reasonable person will assume similar requirements will exist as for SD. The only difference I suspect will be that you have to have where there is gas appliances like furnace or fireplace. I also suspect that the use of combination detectors will be authorized, so I could see basically a wholesale swap for SD to CO/SD as a replacement strategy for most people.
