Well, there’s one surefire device that provides early warnings that may prevent fire fatalities. The answer: a smoke detector.
At Lon Lockwood Electric, we believe your safety is the #1 priority. For that reason, we recommend that you have smoke and carbon monoxide detectors installed in your home to keep your family fully protected from fire. These detectors will give you an early warning to alert you when danger is near. This way, you’ll have enough time to get yourself and your family to safety.
Types of Smoke Detectors
- Hard Wired: we recommend hard wired smoke detectors that are interconnected with each other because they offer the best fire safety protection. For example, during a fire threat all the detectors in the house will go off simultaneously, alerting everyone in the house at the same time. These detectors come with batteries in case you have a power failure. We are home wiring experts, you don’t need to do this yourself.
- Battery-Powered: due to their low cost, 9-volt battery powered smoke alarms are a common choice among homeowners. However, you must take extreme care to replace the batteries on a regular basis in order to make sure they will work when they’re needed most.
