Did you know that the average three-bedroom home should have, at minimal, nine smoke and CO detectors within its perimeters? This recommendation is given by the NFPA, but it is essential to also ensure that they are working on top of just being present. If you find yourself lacking when it comes to continuously checking the batteries, try to seek out home automation for your CO and smoke detectors. This can help by alerting fire departments automatically if something goes wrong, and it can often be hardwired into your electrical system.
- It is important to check the batteries in your CO and smoke detectors regularly to ensure that they are in working condition.
- It may be a good idea to set up home automation which alerts local authorities if your home is in danger.
- Fires travel within minutes, and the smoke associated can kill humans rapidly, which is why working detectors are so important.
“Are you moving into a new home? Whether that’s the case or it’s just been awhile since you’ve even thought about your smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors, now is the time to check them. At least, if you want to have a safe home!”
