Carbon monoxide alarms To protect your family, you need to have both smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms in your home. CO alarms are not just a good idea, they are the law. In Ontario, working CO alarms must be outside all sleeping areas when a home has a fireplace, fuel-burning appliance, or an attached garage. CO is a highly poisonous gas, produced as a by-product when common fuel burning appliances don’t get enough air to burn completely. You can’t see, smell, or taste CO.
