The Importance of Having Smoke Detectors in Your Home

Being able to live comfortably in your home is a great feeling. At ACI Northwest, though, we believe that you can never be truly comfortable in your home unless you know that you are safe. That is why we are so passionate about promoting the use and maintenance of high quality smoke detectors in homes throughout the Spokane area.

When it comes to keeping your home and your family safe there are few devices that you must be able to depend upon as much as your smoke detectors. They are your first line of defense against the dangerous situation that a fire in your home creates. That is why they must be professionally installed, maintained and tested regularly. In the event of a fire you need to know that even in a dead sleep you will be made aware of the danger in your home.

The smoke detector that you depend on to alert you of a fire in your home must be tested every month to ensure that its battery backup is in working order. Having your smoke detectors centrally wired into batter backups will keep them operating even in the event of an electrical outage. Make sure that your home is protected no matter what else may be going on.

Many smoke detectors double as carbon monoxide detectors. If you are unsure if you have carbon monoxide detectors or if your smoke detectors also detect carbon monoxide you must find out immediately. Carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless, and it can be deadly due to the difficulty in detecting it. The only way to know if there is a carbon monoxide leak in your home is with the help of a high quality carbon monoxide detector. Remember, a fire is not the only danger that you may face in your home. Be safe, and keep your smoke detectors and CO detectors in good working condition.
