  • even if they are not required, you should have one! you can not smell carbon monoxide- it is silent killer. I want my family to be safe as I am sure most mothers do. They are not very expensive- around $40 at Home Depot. Well worth it IMPO. My family's health & safety is priceless.

  • I have one. We have a fireplace, it would be irresponsible if we didn't have one. I didn't know that we were required to have one.

  • I don't know that ALL states require them, but IMPO they are essential to any home.

  • We don't have one since there is nothing in our house that would generate carbon monoxide.
