Smoke detectors aren’t meant to last forever, yet many people kind of forget about their devices and that’s not good. Generally, though, you should have your detectors replaced every ten years or so, and it’s a good idea to have a professional electrician from Brutinel do the job.
Brutinel Plumbing & Electrical, Inc., offers a wide range of electrical services, including smoke detector and fire alarm installation and replacement services in Casa Grande, AZ, in order to make sure everything is in proper working order.
Why have an electrician install your detectors? He or she will be able to find and install compliant, reliable devices that will meet your needs. Rather than rely on a cheap battery-operated device from the local discount store, it’s better to have multiple professional-grade devices in your home or business that are hard-wired into your electrical circuitry.
Meanwhile, a professional electrician knows the key spots where detectors should be placed in a building so they’re most effective. Do you currently have an alarm for every bedroom, hallway and living area? If not, it might be time to “upgrade” what you’ve got, so that you’re fully covered. You can never be too safe. Having an expert help configure how many detectors you’ve got and where they all go will help decrease the likelihood of false alarms as well as catch problems should they arise. For instance, an expert will know not to place a detector too close to the kitchen or bathrooms because steam/cooking fumes can falsely set off alarms– something you don’t want!
Can Save You Money in the Long Run
Hiring an electrician can actually save you money if you bundle a bunch of services together all at once… for instance, he or she can not only deal with your smoke detectors, but also do a couple more jobs you’ve been meaning to have done, like testing safety switches, setting up some new outlets to meet your computing needs, and/or replacing some old wires. The more services you order, the more you can save in parts, time and labor costs when it’s all done during one visit.
Peace of Mind
Smoke detectors play a vital role in protecting your home and/or business. Don’t settle for a poorly installed cheap device which may or may not work when it needs to– instead, hire Brutinel to come do the job properly, with the best equipment in the right spots, wired in such a way that you won’t have to worry too much if and when an actual fire does break out.
