Smoke Detectors / Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Posted By jgoodman on February 6, 2023
Are the batteries fresh? Even hardwired systems need battery back-up in the event of a power outage. Set a reminder to change the batteries annually or as specified by the manufacturer in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Ten years is considered the life of a smoke alarm unit. Inspect your current units. They should have a date of manufacture. Toss any units that you find older than that or that don’t have a date on them. Conduct checks of all your alarms to ensure that they are working properly.
