Did you know that more than half of home fire deaths occur in homes without smoke detectors, or detectors that aren’t working properly? With hardwired smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, you can rest easy knowing that you have the best chance in case the unthinkable happens.
Keeping Up with Building Codes
Smoke detectors are required to be placed in every bedroom of a house, and there must be at least one smoke detector on each level. Hardwired smoke detectors are connected to the same system, so when one goes off they all do. This feature gives you and your family additional time to get out of the house when smoke or Carbon Monoxide is detected.
On average, seven people die in U.S. home fires per day. Half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. when most people are asleep and three out of five home fires occur in homes with no smoke alarms. This means that smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms can not only stop so many unnecessary deaths but give families more time to exit their homes with valuable possessions.
Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors in Your Home
If you have older models of smoke or carbon monoxide detectors, they can be easily modified with equipment that allows them to connect to the newer models. A newer, wired system is simple, and could save your life. When you’re ready to upgrade your smoke and Carbon Monoxide detectors, we can ensure that you’re getting the best possible product. If you are interested in having Carbon Monoxide or smoke detectors installed, TriStar Electric is happy to help!
