Smoke Detector Installation & Replacement

Your smoke detectors are a small but crucial device within your Colorado home. These little battery-powered devices can be life-saving for you and your loved ones by warning of dangerous smoke in your home. They can easily be forgotten, sitting silently on your ceiling until it saves your life. Make sure your loved ones and property are protected today by working with us for your smoke detector installment and replacement services.


The Importance of Smoke Detectors

A smoke detector is a critical safety device to have in any part of the property that animals or people reside in. Its entire purpose is to alert you and your loved ones of dangerous smoke in your home putting you at risk. You could end up waking up to flames and layers of unbreathable smoke without having these in place around your house. Having that loud alarm sound off as soon as danger is present is definitely a better way to wake up than doing so when the damage is already done.

How Smoke Detectors Are Installed?

Reaching out to us for smoke detector replacement and installation service means you are getting the best group of electricians in the entire state of Colorado. The sense of safety you are going to have after we complete your smoke detector installation is only improved by how quickly and affordably we get the job done.
We first determine which parts of your house you should ideally have smoke alarms installed. This involves finding where your wall studs are and then making a spot for each unit in the open space between the studs approximately one foot below the ceiling. After a quick sketch of the remodel box to verify we are all lined up, we do the real drilling to get the remodel box installed perfectly.

From there we start running cables to the alarm and put our wiring runs in place. This is followed up by securing the cable and setting the box. After that, we strip and wire your new alarm system. With the mounting plate attached, the alarm gets placed onto the base. To wrap it all up, we connect it up to the electrical panel and perform a test on the alarms to verify it was all installed correctly.

When to Replace Your Smoke Detector?

It is literally a matter of life and death for a homeowner to know when their smoke alarm system is functioning correctly. A broken or malfunctioning alarm in the event of an actual fire emergency could be lethal. This makes it that much more important for a homeowner to do monthly testing.

The moment you identify any of these problems, you should consider replacing the smoke alarm:

  • Per FEMA guidelines, smoke detectors should be fully replaced after 10 years of service. Similar to your other appliances and devices, smoke detectors eventually get old and stop working. The device’s manufactured year should be located on the back of the unit.
  • Your smoke detectors may be clogged by dust and unable to sense smoke in your house.
  • If your alarm system is still chirping or not making sound when tested even after battery replacement, you should completely replace the alarm immediately.
