Smoke Detector Installation Service
Smoke detector installation involves alarms that are either battery-powered or hard-wired into your home’s electrical system. Battery-powered smoke alarms require monthly testing and battery replacement once a year; hard-wired smoke alarms also need to be tested monthly for proper function.
A hard-wired smoke alarm is often the preferred choice for Atlanta homeowners as the alarm has a consistent power source, as it’s easy to forget battery changes. However, in the event of a fire, your home’s electrical system may be affected, which means your smoke detectors may not have power. Hard-wired smoke alarms are available with battery backup power in the event of a power outage. Regular testing is needed to ensure batteries provide power when needed.
Carbon Monoxide Installation Service
Carbon monoxide detectors are a necessity in any Atlanta home that uses gas, propane, or oil-fueled appliances, as well as homes with attached garages or fireplaces. Carbon monoxide is a byproduct of the combustion process – normally it vents out safely, but when certain issues arise, carbon monoxide may build up in your home.
Exposure to this colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas restricts the body’s ability to carry oxygen, which has potentially deadly consequences. To alert occupants of the presence of high carbon monoxide levels, carbon monoxide alarms should be installed:
-On every level of the home
-In the master bedroom or in hallways outside sleeping areas
-A minimum of 15 feet away from any fuel-burning appliance, fireplace, or attached garage entryway
