Hard Wired, Interconnected Smoke Detectors
A properly functioning smoke detector system alerts you to an emergency at the first sign of trouble, which gives you more time to get your family safely out of the house. Unfortunately, malfunctioning smoke detectors, dead batteries, and wiring issues can have devastating consequences. The NFPA strongly urges homeowners to implement a hardwired, interconnected smoke detector system.
Newer homes have interconnected and hardwired smoke detectors, but homes built prior to 1992 may not have this feature. If you are upgrading your smoke detector system or need new smoke detectors installed, it is the perfect time to have a professional electrician install an interconnected system. Our electricians work with you to create a system to provide the ultimate protection for your family and property.
How Interconnected Smoke Detectors Work
Interconnected smoke detector systems have smoke detectors in various areas of the house that are all wired together. This means that is a smoke detector goes off in an upstairs bedroom, the rest of the smoke detectors in the house will also go off. Wherever your family members are in the house, they will be able to hear the alarm. This provides better protection for your home and more time for the family to get out in an emergency.
Hard wired, interlinked smoke detectors also come with a battery backup. This ensures that your smoke detectors will continue to work even if the power goes out. Proper maintenance is important to make sure the system is working as it should be. You will need to replace the batteries, as need, and test the smoke detectors to make sure everything is working.
When to Consider Replacing Smoke Detectors
If you are relying on old battery-powered smoke detectors or you haven’t given the system a thought in years, now is the right time to make sure your family is protected. Regulations and recommendations have changed and older homes may not have enough smoke detectors they may not be placed where they are needed.
Consider replacing smoke detectors when:
- The smoke detectors are more than 10 years old
- The existing system isn’t functioning right
- You are remodeling your home
- Building an addition or converting existing space to a bedroom
Smoke detectors should be placed in every bedroom, in the kitchen, staircases, hallways, and living areas. If you don’t have smoke detectors in these places, we can provide smoke detector installation in Sugar Land to give you the peace of mind of knowing that your family is protected.
