Smoke Detectors

Did you know that smoke detectors can save lives?

In fact, according to the National Fire Protection Association, having a working smoke detector in your home cuts your risk of dying in a fire by half! Smoke detectors are critical because they are designed to alert you and your family in the event of a fire, giving you the precious time you need to evacuate and call for help. Without them, you may not be able to detect a fire until it’s too late.

Testing & Upgrading

However, it’s important to note that smoke detectors have a limited lifespan. Most detectors have a lifespan of 8-10 years, after which they need to be replaced. We can help ensure that your smoke detectors are functioning properly and are up to date.

We recommend that homeowners test their smoke detectors monthly and replace them at least every 10 years. Additionally, if you are renovating or adding onto your home, it’s a great time to upgrade your smoke detectors to the latest technology, such as interconnected detectors that all sound an alarm when one is triggered.
