Photoelectric smoke alarms are the best type of alarms to be installed near the kitchen and bathrooms to reduce nuisance alarms.
New multi-criteria smoke alarm technology will state “helps reduce cooking nuisance alarms” on the packaging. Consider using new multi-criteria alarms when it is ...time to replace existing photoelectric or ionization alarms. Be like Bill!
Fall is a good time to check your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to make sure that they are working properly. Also, make sure to vacuum around your smoke alarms. Keep smoke alarms free of cobwebs and small insects which can set off an smoke alarm. Yes, it can happen!
Did you know? ...Three out of five home fire deaths result from fires in properties without working smoke alarms.
