Home safety devices are an invaluable resource every homeowner should have. Their function is to ensure that your home and household are safe from dangers common in U.S. homes. Several different components make up a complete safety system; with one of the most essential being smoke detectors.

Smoke detectors have an important role in a home – they identify smoke and notify you of its presence, alerting the household to a potential fire. This essential function means proper installation is a must. You never want a smoke detector to be installed with minimal quality or effort. Poor smoke detector installation means you may not be alerted when smoke is present; risking the lives of your family. When dealing with smoke detector installation, always go with experienced professionals to handle the job.

The experts at Salt Light & Electric know the value of professional smoke detector installation. Every Central Texas homeowner should understand why this is important as well. Thus, we have compiled a list of the benefits of having your smoke detectors installed by experienced technicians.

Guaranteed Functionality

  • Without professional guidance, smoke detectors can be installed with missing connections or pieces, leading to a seemingly useless device.
  • When your smoke detector is installed by a professional, every measure is taken to ensure it’s working at intended functionality.
  • Professional services are backed by careful planning and extensive experience; device placement and correct installation are key factors.

Code and Safety Compliance

  • Installing smoke detectors is more than just making sure they work; they should comply to code.
  • Compliance to all codes and regulations is necessary, with stated guidelines including the number, type, location, and more.
  • Failing to comply with code can lead to a decreased level of safety for your home.
  • Professional services guarantee your smoke detectors are maintained and up-to-code, giving you peace of mind with your alarm system.

Upgradeable Options

  • Much like any other technology, smoke detectors receive regular upgrades and innovation to boost the security of a home.
  • Smoke and CO detectors should be replaced every 10 years. This ensures homeowners have the latest designs in detectors – and that the device is working at maximum efficiency.
  • If you are unsure of the age of your smoke detector, the date of release is printed on the device close to the battery compartment. Check your smoke detectors – and if they are older than 10 years, get them replaced as soon as possible!
