Smoke alarms, also known as smoke detectors should go off when the device detects smoke to alert people of potential fire.
If you’re like most people, your smoke alarms have been installed for years and never had a check by a qualified electrician. In fact, there has been no change to the safety code in Florida regarding the installation of smoke detectors since 1995.
95% of all smoke alarms that will ever be installed have already been installed. Your home is your most valuable investment, don’t wait to hire an electrician to make sure they are up to par. Remember, if your smoke alarm saves a life, what can it cost?
Smoke detectors should be installed in the following locations:
on the ceiling or wall outside of each separate sleeping area in the vicinity of bedrooms;
in each bedroom, as most fires occur during sleeping hours;
in the basement, preferably on the ceiling near the basement stairs;
in the garage, due to all the combustible materials commonly stored there;
on the ceiling or on the wall with the top of the detector between 6 to 12 inches from the ceiling; and/or
in each story within a building, including basements and cellars, but not crawlspaces or uninhabited attics.
