Everyone knows smoke detectors alert you to fire, or occasionally a particularly bad cooking job. With wall-mounted detectors you have to change the batteries twice a year. Hardwired smoke detectors, however, connect to your home’s electric system. That means that barring a power outage they will always have energy. Many hardwired systems also have battery backups. With these systems, you never have to worry about being unprepared.
If you have a large house, it is possible you may not hear a single detector from the other side of the house. Hardwired systems usually connect to one another. So when one goes off, they all go off. Some people are naturally forgetful and may not remember to replace the batteries. Because of this, they may benefit from the security of constant protection. Additionally, Ohio electricians highly recommend hardwired smoke detectors.
If your smoke detectors are more than 10 years old, it is time to replace them. Call American Air and install hardwired smoke detectors today.
