  • Smoke detectors save your life in the event of a fire. You must have a smoke detector outside every bedroom in your home. We also recommend placing them in your hallways, stairways, and garage. New laws require smoke detectors that are hard-wired into your electrical wiring with a battery backup. Since the electrical components of your smoke detector break down over time, you should replace them every ten years. Batteries should be replaced yearly. Smoke detector types include the following:

  • Ionization – Ionization detectors work with a continuous current that runs between two electrodes. When smoke is detected, the current is interrupted. The only downside to this detector is that it thinks smoke and steam are the same things, leading to false alarms. They do respond extremely quickly to flaming fires.

    Photoelectric – Photoelectric detectors respond to a reduction in light that reaches an internal photocell. The light is scattered and sounds the alarm when smoke enters the unit. These detectors respond very quickly to a smoldering fire. They do not alert you when the batteries are dead.

Can I Prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?

Carbon monoxide sources often include gas clothing dryers, furnaces, gas fireplaces, grills, car exhaust, gas ranges, and water heaters. It’s essential to ensure these appliances are operated in open areas. The best ways to help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning in your home include the following:

  • Ensure your fireplace flue is open when using it.
  • Install carbon monoxide detectors on every level of your home and outside each bedroom.
  • Check twice that your vehicle is turned off inside the garage.
  • Change the carbon monoxide detector batteries every six months.
  • Only purchase gas appliances or equipment labeled with the American Gas Association or Underwriters’ Laboratories (UL) seal of approval.
  • Avoid heating your home with a gas oven.
  • Take advantage of our yearly safety inspections.
  • Do not use flameless chemical heaters indoors.
  • Keep all gas appliances in optimal working conditions.
  • Make sure you know the different sounds between your CO detector and your smoke detector.
  • A carbon monoxide leak can be fatal within minutes. Carbon monoxide detectors alert you at the first sign of elevated carbon monoxide levels. If you experience any signs of carbon monoxide poisoning, exit your home immediately. The symptoms often feel like the flu without any fever.
