Hardwire Smoke & Carbon Detectors

 

Anytime you have the option to hardwire, either a smoke detector or a carbon monoxide detector do it. Sure, battery-powered units can work great, but they aren’t as reliable as hardwired systems. Over time people forget to change the batteries, or the detectors fail without warning. When a hardwired system starts to fail, the system will usually provide a warning alert.

 

Additionally, when you hardwire your smoke and Co detectors, the alarms are connected. In this case, when one alarm sounds, they all sound, which provides better notification throughout your home or commercial building.

 

Smoke Detector Installation

 

Most people can install a battery-powered smoke detector themselves. That is a relatively simple process that requires no electrical wiring. The battery-powered models can work well for homeowners, but in commercial buildings, you will need a more robust industrial smoke detectors professional installed. The commercial system generally require 120 volts wiring and comes with a 10-year lithium battery backup.

Whether you have outdated carbon monoxide detectors, updating your home, or the current sensors don’t work, one of our professional electricians can install a carbon monoxide detector for you.

 

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that can make you sick or even worse kill you. Approximately 2,000 people die each year from carbon monoxide related posing, and many of them happen in their sleep. It is now required that each home in California install a carbon monoxide alarm outside in the vicinity of each bedroom and, in some cases, in hallways and living rooms.
