We Offer the Best Smoke & CO Detector Installation Services in the Area

It’s easy to overlook the existence of your smoke detector & CO detector. After all, when they’re out of sight, they’re out of mind. However, the importance of these individual or dual smoke & CO detectors, should not be disregarded.

What do these devices do?
Every home is required to have a smoke detector. This device senses smoke in the air as an indication of fire. Some smoke detectors send a signal to the fire department, while others only produce a loud audible signal to notify residents. CO detectors can sense when carbon monoxide permeates the air to prevent the harmful effects of this poisonous gas. Exposure to carbon monoxide can lead to a headache, dizziness, shortness of breath, vomiting, and nausea. Individuals whose breathing is affected may go into respiratory arrest, which can lead to death. There are also long-term effects that can emerge from excessive exposure to carbon monoxide, such as neurological complications including dementia, depression, and memory problems, just to name a few.

One common cause for a smoke and CO detector to sound off is a household fire. Smoke is often emitted into the air due to burning food on the stove or oven, fireplace smoke, or an actual fire. Smoke detectors can also detect electrical fires due to a power surge or faulty, defected wiring. It’s important to get surge protection to prevent a hazardous power surge that can quickly result in an electrical fire. If you’re unsure of the condition of your wires and are looking to get an electrical panel inspection in Burlington County, Camden County, Mercer County, Bucks County, Montgomery County, or Philadelphia County, the electricians at Service Pup are the ones to call.

Smoke & CO Detector Maintenance

Change the Batteries — You should replace the batteries in your smoke & CO detector at least once a year. If your device is more than 10 years old, the entire unit should be replaced immediately.

Test Each Device — Each device in your home should be tested at least once a month. You can test them by holding down the button on your device. Once you hear three consecutive “beeps,” you’ll know your device is working properly.

Clean it Regularly — Dust, debris, and grease buildup can create problems within your device and impede on its ability to function properly. It’s important to dust off each device regularly with a dry cloth. Do not use water or other cleaners on any of the units.

Safety Tips

  • If it’s time to replace your device, consider installing interconnected detectors. This way, when one goes off, they all go off. Doing so will ensure everyone in the household will be notified in the case of an emergency.
  • Smoke or CO detectors should be installed on the ceiling or high on the wall.
  • Smoke detectors in the kitchen should be at least 10 feet away from the stove to prevent frequent false alarms.
  • Closed doors can slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. Smoke and CO detectors should be installed in every room and every level of the home.
  • Creating a home escape plan is the best way to ensure everyone in the household is aware of how to get to safety during an emergency.
