Do You Need New Smoke Detectors?
Did you know that smoke alarms have an expiration date? Smoke alarms are not meant to be operated past the 10-year mark. Even if the batteries are still fresh and the smoke alarm seems to work when you test it, you should still have your smoke detectors replaced after 10 years. You should also check your particular brand or model of smoke detector to see if it expires sooner than 10 years after purchase since some models have a 5-year expiration date.
You should also replace your smoke detectors if you test the alarm and it does not sound. Your smoke detector should have a button that you can press to test it, and this should be done once a month. You will also need to have smoke detectors installed if you don’t have enough of them or if they are not installed according to code. Smoke detectors should be installed in each bedroom, in hallways next to bedrooms, and at least one on every level of your home, including the basement.
What Type of Smoke Detector Should You Choose?
The best smoke detectors are interconnected alarms. These can either be interconnected by having them hardwired throughout your home, or they can be interconnected via wireless technology. The purpose of interconnected smoke detectors is to alert everyone in the house when there is smoke in one room. If one alarm detects smoke, all of the smoke detectors in the house will start sounding an alarm. These types of smoke detectors also have batteries as backups in case the power goes out, and some smart detectors have ways of notifying your phone in case of an emergency or connecting via Bluetooth.
Carbon Monoxide Detector Installation
Another important part of home protection is making sure you also have carbon monoxide or CO detectors installed in your home. These devices help alert you when there is carbon monoxide from your furnace, water heater, oven, or any other fuel-burning source in your home. Carbon monoxide detectors can also be hardwired, or they can be plugged in or battery-powered.
