If a fire breaks out in your home, will you be alerted of its presence so you and your family can escape the property to safety? If you don’t have working smoke detectors or smoke detectors installed in the right spots of your home, then you likely have a lapse in this crucial safety initiative. While seemingly simple appliances, entire interconnected smoke detector systems can be installed today to offer a higher degree of protection for your household – and we can help with the design, installation and inspection. Here’s a closer look at the importance of smoke detector installation and how we can help enhance your home’s overall fire safety.
The Importance of Smoke Detectors
Smoke detectors can mean the difference between life and death when installed in residential properties. It’s estimated that about 2,000 Americans lose their homes each year due to fire, with some losing more than just their property – but their lives. In fact, studies indicate that nearly two-thirds of fire deaths occur in households without a working smoke detector. It’s a big reason why smoke detectors should be installed on every level of your home, especially outside of sleeping areas to alert residents of nighttime threats.

Turn to Us For Your Smoke Detector Installation Needs
Having a single working smoke detector is not enough to protect your family from fire threats. Our professionals can work to determine how many detectors are needed and where smoke detectors need to be placed to alert you to any potential fires in your home. Our electricians use hard-wired detectors, rather than traditional battery detectors, eliminating the need to constantly replace batteries. Hard-wired detectors are connected and talk to each other, meaning that if a fire is detected in one part of your home, all of the alarms will go off, ensuring everyone in the home can hear the alarm and safely evacuate. Newer models also feature Smart alerts, notifying you via phone, tablet, or computer about a potential threat if you are not at home.
Let Us Help You Maintain and Care For Your Smoke Detectors
Hard-wired smoke detectors require less care and maintenance compared to battery detectors, however, they still need attention and care. Despite being hard-wired, the unit still contains a battery, which powers the device in the event of a power outage. This means that the battery does not need to be replaced as frequently as traditional battery-powered units, but still does need to be replaced. Additionally, the unit should be tested at least once a year to ensure it works and is properly wired. Most detectors have a lifespan of around 20 years, after which time, the unit should be replaced. We can help you replace batteries, test your units, and replace your units as needed.
