Smoke Alarm & Carbon Monoxide Detectors in Spokane
Keep Your Family Safe with Quality Smoke & CO Alarms
Protect your family with quality smoke alarms and CO detectors. These are two essential facets of home safety required by law in most buildings. When it comes to smoke alarm and CO detector repair, replacement, or installation, it’s best to leave the job to a licensed electrician from Epic Electrical. A faulty repair or installation could put you and your home in serious jeopardy.
During your home safety inspection, our trusted electricians will inspect your existing smoke alarms and CO detectors to ensure they’re working properly. It is highly recommended that you have more than one smoke alarm in your house. We can help you figure out optimal placement for your smoke alarms and CO detectors.
The Dangers of Carbon Monoxide
Many homeowners understand the need and importance of smoke alarms. However, just as important but often less common are CO detectors. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless toxic gas that is the by-product of combustion. This gas can be produced by any fuel-burning appliance.
Some common sources of CO found around homes are:
- Charcoal grills
- Gas stoves, dryers, and water heaters
Smoke Alarm Placement
It’s no secret that smoke alarms should be placed in locations where there is an open flame. By default, homeowners should have a smoke alarm in both the kitchen and near the fireplace as these are where fires are most likely to occur. However, that doesn’t mean a fire can’t break out in other locations as well.
Damaged wires and other electrical issues can cause a fire to start in any room. For your safety and peace of mind, it’s important to have one smoke alarm in every room with a flame or heat source, and one on every floor in your home. It shouldn’t stop there, though. By installing a smoke alarm in each room, you’ll feel safer knowing an alarm is more likely to trigger as soon as a fire starts.
At Epic Electrical, we recommend using interconnecting smoke alarms. As soon as one goes off, the others will then follow. The sooner you’re aware of a problem, the sooner you can respond.
