If you have no gas lines in your house, do you need a carbon monoxide detector?

We have absolutely no gas line to our house. Heater, everything, is electric. Is it necessary to have a carbon monoxide detector? If so, where would it come from?

  • Check with your local building commissioner or fire department; they will let you know what the code is for your municipality.

  • If you are all electric you don't need one. Make sure furnace, stove, hot water heater are alll electric though. If you have gas anywhere in your home one near the furnace. One one each floor esp. outside bedrooms.

  • We have no furnace. Our heat is through little electric wall heaters, and our water heater is electric. The stove is electric. There's no gas lines in this house, period. I don't know if the neighbors have any either.
