When it comes to keeping your family safe, it is only normal for you to do everything you can. One of the major fears any homeowner has is a fire in your home. Accidents happen and sometimes no matter how cautious you are, all it takes is a little spark to get a fire going. How quickly you learn about that fire can mean the difference between saving your home or losing everything you hold dear as well as putting your family at risk. A Burbank electrician has a suggestion to help make your home a little safer. Have hard-wired smoke detectors installed by an electrician like those at H Electric.
Hard-wired smoke detectors essentially work the same as the typical battery-powered smoke detectors. However, the one main difference, and this is where it matters most, once one detector goes off, every alarm in the home will go off. This adds minutes to your alert time and gives you the time you need to take action. Minutes mean everything in a house fire. In some cases, the television may be too loud or you may be asleep in another room and not immediately hear a smoke detector going off because of the distance. With the connection between all of the detectors in the house, it means you will hear it no matter where you are as long as there is a detector installed nearby by an electrician. Burbank homeowners will want a minimum of 1 detector per floor.
Another major benefit to having this type of smoke detector installed is the fact the power will come directly from your home’s main electric and will not rely on batteries. This ensures you never have to worry about a smoke detector being inoperable due to a dead battery or a borrowed battery. If you are ready to make your home just a little safer, give H Electric a call today and schedule your hard-wired smoke detector installation.
