Smoke Detectors

Chirping Smoke Detectors

on Wed, 11/14/2012 - 15:31

As we enter into daylight savings time, now is a smart time to replace the batteries in all of your smoke detectors. If your smoke detector begins to chirp, replace your batteries and I also recommend using the hose attachment on your vacuum cleaner to remove the dust that has accumulated in the ionization chamber of the smoke detector.
 
In new homes, the National Fire Protection Agency now recommends smoke detectors be installed in and outside all sleeping areas with them interconnected. It is not necessary to install them close to the kitchen. I hope this helps!
 
Warmly,
Dennis
