Smoke Detector Installation in ClevelandWe don’t need to tell you the importance of smoke detectors in your home. We do need to encourage you to check your smoke detectors at least two times a year. You should also clean smoke detectors with a vacuum at least once a year. Open the cover and vacuum all the dust and debris that may hinder detection of smoke.
If a smoke detector is 10 years old replace it with a new one immediately. Replace batteries in a smoke detector every six months. Test smoke detectors often with the test button.
Battery operated smoke detectors are good, but if you don’t regularly check the batteries, the alarm may not sound when you need it most!
Arc-fault Circuit-Interrupter (AFCI)An AFCI or Arc-fault Circuit-Interrupter is a device that prevents home fires by detecting an electrical arc, or sparking from one wirer to another. When an arc occurs the AFCI instantly disconnects the damaged circuit before the arc builds enough heat to catch fire.
Ground Fault Circuit InterrupterA GFCI, or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter, is a fast-acting circuit breaker designed to prevent electrical shocks and shut off electric power within as little as a 1/40th of a second. It works by shutting off an electric power circuit when it detects that current is flowing along an unintended path, such as through a person to the ground.
Clover Electric Recommends Hard-wired Smoke DetectorsHard-wired smoke alarms operate on your household electrical current. They can be interconnected so that every alarm sounds regardless of the fire's location. This is an advantage in early warning, because it gives occupants extra time to escape if they are in one part of the home and a fire breaks out in another part. In addition, Hard wired detectors use a re-charging battery backup so the system is already ready.
Carbon Monoxide DetectorsFACT: Your smoke detector will NOT do the job of a carbon monoxide detector.
A carbon monoxide detector or CO detector is a device that detects the presence of the carbon monoxide (CO) gas in order to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. CO is a colorless and odorless compound produced by incomplete combustion in your furnace, stove, space heater, water heater, blocked chimney or running a car inside a closed garage.
It is often referred to as the "silent killer" because it is virtually undetectable without using detection technology.
Elevated levels of CO can be dangerous to humans depending on the amount present and length of exposure. Smaller concentrations can be harmful over longer periods of time while increasing concentrations require diminishing exposure times to be harmful.
CO detectors are designed to measure CO levels over time and sound an alarm before dangerous levels of CO accumulate in an environment, giving people adequate warning to safely ventilate the area or evacuate.
Every home NEEDS a carbon monoxide detector. Clover Electric can help. Our technicians are trained in the latest technologies and can properly install a CO detector in your home.
