Smoke Detectors

Time To Get Those Batteries Changed or Units Replaced!


Do you need all new batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Or if your units are old or defective it may be time to replace them.

It’s that time again.  Time to replace all the batteries in the Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.  Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are the first lines of defense against smoke and fire to help protect your family. They may awaken those who would otherwise have been overcome by smoke and toxic gases in their sleep. And most importantly, they provide an early warning alerting individuals of a fire, allowing them precious time to escape to safety.

If your smoke detector unit is old or not working properly, it maybe time to replace the units.  One reason is that dust and insects can collect in the sensing chamber of the alarm. An accumulation of dust in the sensing chamber can cause the unit to chirp. It is good practice to clean the smoke alarm when you change the battery.  But if the unit can not be cleaned it should be replaced for safety.
 All smoke alarms should be tested at least once a month to make sure they operate properly. If a smoke alarm or carbon monoxide detector is battery operated, replace the batteries at least once a year to make sure the alarm will work when it is needed. It’s a good practice to make replacement of batteries a seasonal routine.  Let us do that for you.  Give us a call and we can replace the batteries for you, including the smoke detectors on the high ceiling and hard to reach places.
