One of the best ways to make sure your smoke detectors are working correctly and your home is safe is to have a qualified electrician handle the installation needs. One of Mister Sparky’s many electrical services is smoke detector installation. Our certified electricians will come to your house and inspect each unit. They will replace any that do not work, and install new units in rooms that do not have any. We are dedicated to keeping you and your family safe.
Facts about Home Smoke Detectors
Properly installed smoke detectors have dramatically reduced the number of fatalities caused by home fires. Statistics have shown you have a 50% better chance of surviving a fire in your home if you have the recommended number of smoke detectors installed.
Other facts about smoke detectors and smoke detector installation include:
- Smoke detectors that are more than ten years old need to be replaced by an electrician
- Ionization smoke alarms complete an estimated three million monitoring cycles within the course of ten years, while the light in photoelectric smoke alarms is constantly working to check the air in your home for particles of smoke
- The components in smoke detectors can wear out just like any other kind of electrical component
Even if you have smoke detectors wired directly into your home’s electrical system, you still need to make sure you replace them with new smoke detectors every ten years.
How Many Smoke Detectors Does Your Home Need?
The number of smoke detectors you will need depends on how many floors your home has and the number of bedrooms you have in your home. It’s recommended you have a smoke detector for each bedroom or at least one for each floor of your home.
