A hardwired smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector are a necessary part of every household. Sadly, three out of five home fire deaths in 2009-2013 were caused by fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. While you lay your children down to sleep each night and climb into your own bed, you can rest easy knowing that you’re safe with a smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm.
Today’s 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 CO 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.
If you have older models of smoke or carbon monoxide detectors, they can be easily retrofitted with equipment that allows them to connect to the newer models. Our system is simple, and life-saving. When you’re ready to upgrade your smoke/CO systems, we can ensure that you’re getting the best possible product. If you are interested in having CO or smoke detectors installed, TriStar can take care of this project!
