Types of Smoke Alarm Systems
Many people know that smoke alarms are important to have around, but only have a general awareness about these handy devices. Few homeowners are aware that there are two primary types of alarms, and that both are essential to have installed within your property. The first type, known as an “ionization” alarm, works to detect actual flames. However, it is also crucial to have a “photoelectric” alarm as well, since this can sense the presence of a smoldering, smoking fire even if there are not large flames yet.
In addition to these standard alarms, anyone who has difficulty hearing can also invest in special smoke alarms that come with additional features to alert you when a fire is present. Some of these features can include strobe lights, or even methods for vibrating or shaking the bed. You can discuss all these options and more with our knowledgeable technicians.
Nowadays, smoke alarms are built to be more functional and sensitive than ever before, ensuring that you and your family are thoroughly warned at the first sign of a dangerous fire. However, in order to make sure that your smoke alarms stay in their prime condition, you need to consider some key steps, or they will not work as accurately as they should.
In order to ensure that your smoke alarms are completely precise at all times, make sure to:
- Place your alarms either directly on the ceiling, or if they are on the wall, at least within one foot of the ceiling
- Have your systems regularly tested, typically once a month
- Always contact Super Power Electric if you notice that your smoke alarms are not making noises
- Have our professionals replace your smoke alarms at least every 10 years
- Make sure that your smoke alarms are interconnected, so that if one alarm sounds, it will operate the other alarms as well
