Every year, there are numerous deaths in homes from fire and carbon monoxide poisoning. Had smoke detectors or carbon monoxide detectors been regularly inspected and professionally installed in these homes, these tragedies could have been prevented.
Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors that are properly installed and maintained prevent numerous deaths and injuries yearly. To protect you, it is important to know where to install them and having them professionally installed is crucial to ensure they do their job in warning you of danger. A licensed Temecula electrician can help you identify the best areas to install your detectors and can perform the installations to allow for maximum safety and impact for you and your family.
Smoke Detector Replacement & Installation
The average life expectancy of your smoke detectors is only about 8-10 years. If your home is older than that, chances are they should be replaced. Smoke detectors are not expensive, yet they are extremely valuable in terms of saving lives. A professional electrician can equip your home with one that is directly connected to your electrical system, ensuring that it keeps running and keeps you from having to check the batteries all the time.
An additional benefit of working with a state-licensed electrician is that they will know the best places to install the detectors for best coverage. With regular assessments and inspections, they can also identify when your smoke detectors may need to be repaired or replaced. They will also know whether it is best to install a photoelectric or ionization smoke detector in your home.
Carbon Monoxide Detector Installation & Replacement
If your home uses natural gas in any form, you should always have a carbon monoxide detector installed and ensure it is working properly. Plus, certain equipment will also give off CO fumes during their operations, like furnaces. Carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless, and it can be deadly before you even realize it. A CO detector can help prevent you from suffering any long-term effects of prolonged carbon monoxide exposure and poisoning.
Some of the warning signs of this include:
- Sudden headaches
- Chest pain
- Dizziness or disorientation
- Sudden fatigue
Should you experience any of the above symptoms, it’s important that you exit your home immediately and call 911. Once you and your home have been cleared by medical professionals, call Discount Service Electric and we’ll send someone out to conduct the necessary installations or replacements.
Having your carbon monoxide installed at just the right place and heights throughout the home could save you and your family’s lives. A professional Murrieta carbon monoxide installer can identify the perfect locations for the best coverage to protect you within your home.
