Why You Should Hardwire Your Smoke Detector

It’s more than likely that you understand the importance of having a smoke detector in your home—we don’t meet many homeowners who try to challenge this. One question we do get is, "Why should I hardwire my smoke detector?" Well, in short, hardwired smoke detectors are much more reliable. If you go with a battery-powered smoke detector, you always run the risk of this system dying and leaving your home unprotected. A hardwired smoke detector will always last.

In addition to this, we interconnect our hardwired smoke detectors so that when smoke triggers one detector, the rest of your smoke alarms go off too. Fires spread rapidly so an interconnection saves precious minutes and could potentially save lives. If you need smoke detector installation or smoke detector replacement, make sure you come to us.

The Dangers of Carbon Monoxide

You need a carbon monoxide detector in your home. Carbon monoxide is a dangerous chemical to have leak in your home. If the combustion process on your furnace is ever incomplete, it will leak carbon monoxide gas. This toxic gas is so dangerous because it’s colorless and odorless. If it starts to leak in your home, you won’t know until it’s too late.

If you want carbon monoxide detector installation or carbon monoxide detector replacement services that you know will keep you safe, turn to our team at Scherer Electric. Our technicians know what it takes to keep your home safe from harmful chemicals.
