‘Tis the season to be…safer! Fa la la la la la la la!
The holiday season is right around the corner, meaning daylight Savings Time (DST) will soon come to an end: November 2nd to be exact. Your attention will soon turn to shopping, decorating, and all of the other fun-filled holiday activities you love. So, before you get wrapped up in the holiday spirit, it’s important to start thinking about setting your clocks back, adjusting your lighting controls, and upgrading your Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors.
Did you know that the maximum life of any reliable smoke detector is 10 years, according to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA)?
Hardwired Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors Improve Safety
The 3 stars for this winter season are * Safety * Family * Prevention *
In the event of an emergency, time is of the essence. You rely on your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to warn you of impending danger. But these simple safety devices cannot do their jobs when their batteries die. And when was the last time you tested your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors? Unfortunately, many homeowners neglect their detectors until it is too late. The solution: Hardwired Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors. . These detectors run on your home’s electrical system, and have battery backups that operate in the event the electricity is not working. That’s what we like to call a win-win! And when one goes off, they all go off. This gives you and your family additional time to get out of the house when smoke or carbon monoxide is detected.

“TriStar cares about your wellbeing. That is why we are extending Fire Prevention Month until the end of November,” said TriStar Electric co-owner Dave Crawford. “There are more house fires in the winter due to holiday light overloads, space heaters and overloaded circuits, fireplaces, furnace issues, unattended candles, etc. Not to mention winter is when most carbon monoxide issues occur from faulty heaters and other carbon monoxide producing equipment being used.”
