While not having a smoke detector is an obvious danger and safety hazard, having a faulty or improper one may be even riskier. Don’t wait until it’s too late; be sure you have an effective and reliable monitored smoke detector.
The last thing you want to do after a fire is wonder why smoke detector didn’t work, or didn’t respond in time. And it’s also why you want to make sure you are testing your devices on a regular basis. Remember, a smoke detector should be changed every 10 years.
Tests have shown that photoelectric smoke detectors respond 30 to 40 minutes faster to smoldering fires. Studies have shown for years that a majority of fire fatalities were from smoke inhalation as opposed to actual flames.
Having a smoke detector with better sensitivity to the initial stages of a fire means more time to escape safely in the event of a fire. After all, in emergencies, seconds save lives.
