Replace your smoke detector every 10 years

Your smoke detector needs to be replaced every 10 years. Old detectors have an increased 3% failure per year. After 10 years that is a 30% chance of failure. CO2 detectors need to be replaced every 5 years. We see it all the time here in Philadelphia. Old homes with old smoke alarms. Even worse, most electricians and home inspectors don't even know to warn home owners!
