Fuel Gas Detectors Now Required in Maine

The State of Maine has passed a law that goes into effect January 1, 2022 which requires the installation of a fuel gas detector in some commercial and residential buildings. The Law will require that an alarm be installed in every room containing an appliance fueled by propane, natural gas or any liquified petroleum gas. Occupancies that are affected include: multifamily dwellings, a fraternity house, sorority house or dormitory, a children's home, emergency children's shelter, children's residential care facility, shelter for homeless children or specialized children's home, a hotel, motel or inn, a mixed-use occupancy that contains a dwelling unit, an assembly, mercantile or business and residential rental units.
