What Is a Hardwired Smoke Detector?
Wired smoke detectors are powered by the electricity in your house, rather than relying solely on a battery. They have a battery back-up in case of a power failure.
What are the Benefits of Installing Hardwired Smoke Detectors?
The biggest benefit of wired vs. battery-powered smoke alarms is peace of mind.
According to the U.S. Fire Administration, 60% of house fire deaths are in homes that don’t have working smoke alarms. With both electric and battery power, you can rest easy knowing your wired smoke detector will work in the unfortunate event of a fire. And, you don’t have to remember to change batteries every few months.
What Is a Hardwired Carbon Monoxide Alarm?
Wired carbon monoxide alarms are connected to your home’s electrical system instead of just a battery. Most models include a battery as a back-up.
What are the Benefits of Installing Hardwired Carbon Monoxide Alarms?
Choosing a wired carbon monoxide (CO) detector instead of a battery-powered one will help keep your loved ones safe. Approximate 500 people each year die from CO poisoning. Carbon monoxide is called “the silent killer” because humans can’t detect the colorless, odorless gas. And because CO alarms are often installed in low-traffic areas of the home, it’s easy to forget to change or check the batteries. A hardwired CO alarm is an easy way to protect your family.
