Most fire deaths occur in homes lacking smoke detectors. Install smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in your home and help protect your Westchester NY family. Doing this can cut your chances of dying in a home fire by 50%. Sometimes tragically, existing smoke alarms are not kept up to date or could have batteries missing. For these reasons, have an electrician hard-wire new smoke alarms instead of taking chances. Hard-wired smoke and carbon monoxide alarms will sound off simultaneously throughout your home when one unit detects smoke or gas. Battery backups can provide extra protection if a fire causes the power to go out. Most local building codes require hard-wired smoke alarms in all new construction, but the added security and protection of a hard-wired system in an existing home is well worth
the time and effort. A working smoke detector can make a difference in saving a life in the minutes it may take a home to burn down.
If you already have smoke alarms, make sure to test them EVERY month!
Too many people do not take this seriously. If your existing alarm uses batteries, make sure no one removes those batteries to use for something else or ever takes them out without replacing them immediately. It’s also recommended to replace your alarms every 8-10 years.
