Unfortunately far too often we find ourselves disabling our smoke alarms due to “nuisance alarms.” These occur some times because of a kitchen mishap burned dinner, or simply too much steam from the stove top. And I’m sure we have all dealt with the change the battery “chirp.” Even I am guilty of not just removing a battery a time or 2 but removing the entire unit because I just couldn’t get it to stop! Well First Alert would like to ask that we all think twice about disabling our alarms and have even come up with a solution and a few tips to share.
When it comes to your fire alarms you want proper alarm placement, regular maintenance and alarm replacement which are keys to evading the annoyance of nuisance alarms. According to Hanson, if you experience repeated false alarms, the problem could be solved by simply replacing with newer models, such as the First Alert Maximum Protection series of alarms, which feature breakthrough anti-nuisance technology. In case of false alarms, a mute button will temporarily silence alarm activation.
“Smoke alarms have a useful life of 10 years, on average, while CO alarms should be replaced after five to seven years,” noted Hanson. “If you cannot recall when your alarms were installed, it’s best to be safe and replace the units.”
First Alert wants you and your family to be safe especially this holiday season- marked by an increased use of stoves, ovens, fireplaces and other potentially CO-emitting heating sources – quickly approaches. Throughout the month of October, First Alert will be actively promoting these and other fire safety tips as part of its “Power Up!” Fire Prevention Month campaign. In conjunction with its retailers and fire services partners, the brand will host a series of public fire safety events across the country.
