Smoke Detector Essentials | Best Pick Reports

Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are essential equipment for a home. The National Fire Protection Agency states that these detectors should be installed inside each bedroom, outside all sleeping areas, and on every level of the home.

The detectors should also be hardwired and linked together so that the triggering of any single device will sound all of the alarms in the home. An electrical contractor can install this kind of alarm system and may also supply the detectors.

Both ionization and photoelectric detector types should be used, to address a range of fire situations.
