Our experienced professionals can advise you on the smoke detectors that are right for each room of your house, and on the placement strategies that offer the greatest protection with maximum efficiency. Then we'll install the smoke-detection system you choose, quickly, efficiently, and tidily.

Smoke Detector Maintenance
Smoke detectors can make the difference between fleeing a building fire in time and becoming overwhelmed by smoke and fumes. Make sure that yours are always in working order.
The National Fire Protection Agency recommends that you replace your smoke detectors every five years as a first step toward ensuring that your alert system functions as intended. Smoke detectors should always be hardwired where possible, and their batteries used only as backups in case of power outages. Our electricians can convert your batteries-only smoke detectors to a more reliable hardwired system, and can set up a schedule for routine maintenance and battery replacement.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
While smoke detectors are mandatory throughout the country, carbon monoxide detectors are merely strongly recommended. This does not make them any less valuable: carbon monoxide is one of the most common types of poisoning in the US, sending more than 20,000 people to the emergency room each year. If undetected, a carbon monoxide leak can become lethal within minutes.
Carbon monoxide can enter living areas through connections to gas ranges and dryers, water heaters and furnaces, fireplaces, and clogged chimneys, among other avenues. Because it is colorless and odorless, it can affect victims before they even suspect what is happening. That's why carbon monoxide detectors are essential components of any home.
Our technicians can recommend the best strategy for placing carbon monoxide detectors in your home, repair any units you have in place, and install new ones where necessary. We'll even conduct an inspection if you wish, to catch any potential leaks before they affect your health.
