When installing a solid fuel or wood burning stove it is a legal requirement to fit a carbon monoxide alarm in the same room. This is a new requirement in the 2010 ADJ, which says:
2.36 The carbon monoxide alarm should be located in the same room as the appliance:
a. on the ceiling at least 300mm from any wall or, if it is located on a wall, as high up as possible (above any doors and windows) but not within 150mm of the ceiling; and
b. between 1m and 3m horizontally of the appliance.
