Smoke Detectors

Smoke Detector

Your smoke detectors are designed to detect smoke from a fire and sound a warning alarm. They are wired directly, but have a battery backup in case of a power outage. They are extremely sensitive and may set off a false alarm from smoke associated with cooking, insects, or dust particles. The manufacturer recommends vacuuming the device periodically to help eliminate false alarms. Changes in temperature and humidity can also cause false alarms.

The detectors will make a chirping sound when the batteries are getting low. We recommend you change the batteries twice a year with a nine volt alkaline battery and do all of them at the same time. This is best done around the time change in the Spring and Fall. Follow the instructions carefully, as an incorrectly installed battery will continue to "chirp."
