Are your Smoke Detectors Still Working?
According to the National Fire Protection Agency, any smoke detector over 10 years old should be replaced.
Even though the power light may be on and the test button works, older units are no longer capable of detecting smoke.
74% of fire fatalities are in homes without smoke detectors or with non-working smoke detectors.
State Law Requires Homes to Have Detectors
Current new construction codes call for electric Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors with a backup battery to be installed on each level of a home and a Smoke Detector in every bedroom. State law requires that any home sold have a Smoke Detector and a Carbon Monoxide Detector installed on each level of the home. *
Smoke Detectors can be Inexpensive
Replacing older smoke detectors is very inexpensive. We can also replace them with combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors.
Current technology in Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors even eliminates the need for annual battery changes! Detectors are available with 10 year sealed lithium batteries that never need to be changed and are now the requirement in Maryland.
