When To Change Smoke & CO Detectors

Did you know that nearly $17.5 million in property damage comes as a result of house fires during the holiday season (November - January) each year? Don’t allow a fire to ruin your fun this season -- find out how properly functioning smoke and carbon monoxide detectors can help.

Believe it or not, smoke alarms should be installed on every level of your home. This includes hallways and bedrooms as well as the basement and any floors in between. Smoke and carbon monoxide detector batteries should be checked monthly to make sure they still have enough juice to alert you should there ever be a problem.

When is it time to completely replace detectors? We recommend swapping them out every 8-10 years. It’s important to have them installed by a qualified electrician, like GEN3 Electric, to ensure the devices are up to code and are wired properly.

Don’t become another statistic. Check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors now and give us a call if you need yours replaced. We want everyone to enjoy a very happy and healthy holiday season!
