Smoke Detector Installation and Update

Nothing is more important that the safety of your family, and safeguards need to be in place in every home to ensure that you are protected — even if the unthinkable occurs.

Smoke Detectors

How common are electrical fires?

The U.S. Fire Administration reports that during a typical year, home electrical problems account for 67,800 fires, 2,305 injuries, 485 deaths, and $868 million in property losses. If your home’s smoke detectors are 10 years of age or older — they’re expired. Yes! Smoke detectors expire! Like anything expired, they can’t be counted on to do their jobs if a fire emergency occurs in your home. In fact, statistics show that expired smoke detectors often fail.

Where are smoke detectors required?

Many homes also lack smoke detectors in required locations. Current building Codes require - as a minimum - that smoke alarms be installed inside every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home. Additional smoke alarms are required for larger homes. Homes built to earlier standards often don’t meet these minimum requirements.

What is the benefit of interconnected smoke detectors?

As the name implies, “Interconnected Smoke Detectors” are smoke detectors that are wired together. Wiring the devices together provides two advantages. First, the smoke detectors have a consistent power supply, so that they never fail for lack of a charged battery. Second, the smoke detectors are wired together, so that all the alarms sound when one of the devices detects a problem.

In a Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) survey of households with any fires, interconnected smoke alarms were twice as likely to operate and alert occupants to a fire as devices that are not interconnected.
