If you want to protect your home and family from the dangers of smoke, fire and carbon monoxide then it is crucial you have smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors installed by the professionals at Lighten Up Electric and Plumbing. Professional installation will not only save you the time and hassle of doing the work yourself, but you will also be assured that your detectors will be vigilant without fail and always there when needed.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, a fire department responds to a residential fire in the U.S. every 77 seconds and someone succumbs to fire or smoke inhalation about every 135 minutes. Many of these fires could have been avoided had the homes in question been equipped with working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Hard-wired smoke detectors are much safer than battery operated detectors because they are less likely to fail. Unfortunately, many homes are woefully unprotected from smoke, fire and carbon monoxide and have only one or two battery-operated units spread throughout. The problem with this approach is that because the detectors themselves are too spread out, they may not detect smoke or carbon monoxide until it is too late.
There is also too much human error made possible by battery operated smoke detectors. Many home owners forget to test their batteries regularly so when smoke strikes, the detector isn’t working. A hard-wired system eliminates the need for batteries or testing and allows you to rest easy knowing your home is well protected without the hassle associated with battery-powered units.
