Why Investing In A Smoke Alarm Can Save Your Life.

By Robert Goldsmith

A Smoke alarm or smoke detector have saved thousands of lives. Smoke detectors are
your first line of security against fire and can reduce the chance dying in a home fire.
Even though they can be a nuisance when you burn toast, An inexpensive household
smoke alarm detector can mean that every member of your family gets out of a
burning house alive. Prevention and deterrence should always be a front line method
of avoiding home accidents.

What they are?

A smoke alarm is basically an electrical circuit that gets interrupted by particles. A fire
sends miniscule particles into the air, when these tiny particles reach the smoke
detector they interfere with the electrical circuit and alert a microchip. A smoke alarm's
microchip is programmed to send a signal to set off the alarm.

Where to Install?

? Install the smoke alarm near bedrooms - high on a wall or ceiling.
? Don't install them near air vents.
? Replace detectors that are more than 10 years old.
? For the best fire protection install both an ionization smoke detectors. One is
for fast burning flames and another one for smoldering fires.

Types of Smoke Detectors:

There are plenty of options available for you to select the best smoke detectors for
your home. They are Battery Operated Smoke Detectors, 120V AC Hardwire Smoke
Detectors, Combination Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detectors, Ionization/Photoelectric
Smoke Detectors, Smoke Detectors with Relays, Heat Detectors, Photoelectric Smoke
Alarms, Strobe Light Modules-For Hearing Impaired and Wireless Smoke Alarm.

What suits as best?

Ionization smoke detectors respond first to fast flaming fires. Whereas, Photo
electronic smoke alarms respond first to slow smoldering fires. Photo electronic models
are best suited for living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens. This is because, these rooms
often contain large pieces of furniture, such as sofas, chairs, mattresses, counter tops,
etc. which will burn slowly and create more smoldering smoke than flames. These
alarms are also less prone to nuisance alarms in the kitchen area than ionization smoke
