Here are some useful tips on how to select a perfect Smoke Alarm that will fit the needs of your home.

  • First thing to consider is the location of smoke alarms. They should be installed on every level of the building, including the attic and basement. The majority of fatal fires start from these places during the night-hours that’s why it is necessary to have an alarm outside your sleeping area.
  • Second thing to consider is the proper maintenance of a smoke alarm. If this device has a low or not working battery, it won’t detect any smoke. That is why it is advised to test the device monthly and to replace the batteries at least once a year.
  • Third and most important moment is all about a proper installation of any Smoke Alarm you select. It should be mounted according to the instructions set by manufacturer. That way it will work correctly and will be entitled to the manufacturer’s warranty.
