The Ins & Outs of Smoke Detector Replacement & Installation
Can you remember when you had your smoke detector installed? The average life expectancy of these devices is 8-10 years. Therefore, if you live in an older home and you’re unsure when your smoke detector was installed, it might be a good time to consider replacing it. Fortunately, these devices are inexpensive considering how vital they are to the safety of you, your loved ones, and your property. When our Saskatoon smoke detector specialists install a new one, we will hook one up directly to your electrical system so you won’t have to worry about constantly replacing the batteries.
Another plus side of working with an experienced team of electricians is that we can help suggest what type of smoke detector would be best for you: photoelectric or ionization. From there, we will assess the best places to install these devices to ensure maximum coverage in your home. Our team can also return for regular inspections and maintenance to assure you that your smoke detectors are all functioning as they should. If you need any repairs, we will be able to conduct them on the spot.
The Importance of Having a Properly Working Carbon Monoxide Detector
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless substance that can have detrimental effects if people are exposed to it. Therefore, if you rely on a furnace for heat or if you have any appliances powered by natural gas, it’s of vital importance that you have a carbon monoxide detector installed.
Some of the warning signs of carbon monoxide poisoning include:
- Sudden fatigue
- Dizziness or disorientation
- Sudden headaches
- Chest pain
If you or a family member exhibits any of the above symptoms, it’s important that you immediately evacuate the premises and call 911. Once it’s been cleared, call our Saskatoon carbon monoxide detector specialists and we will ensure that you have a properly working device. Should you need a replacement, we will ensure it is installed in the best locations to ensure maximum protection and coverage.
Perhaps lesser known and utilized than smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, heat detectors also serve an important function. These devices have built in sirens and sound an alarm when the temperature in your property exceeds a set limit (fixed temperature heat detectors) or when it rises a certain amount of degrees per minute (rate-of-rise heat detectors). These devices help reduce property damage due to a fire.
It’s important to note that heat detectors do not replace smoke detectors. Rather, these devices are installed in rooms where it’s ill advised to install a smoke detector, such as the kitchen, laundry room, garage or attic due to dust or increased chances of false alarms.
In addition to fires and smoke, another substance that can easily damage your property is water. Fortunately, our electricians can install water detectors to help prevent water and flood damage from occurring. These devices have a sensor that can detect the presence of water where it shouldn’t be. These high-tech units can also alert you when there are freezing temperatures so you can prevent frozen pipes before any damage is done. With a water detector, you’ll never have to worry about hidden leaks or unwanted moisture again.
