Selecting the Right Type of Smoke Detector for Your Phoenix Area Home
Ionization smoke detectors: These types of detectors respond more efficiently to flaming fires. If smoke enters the ionization chamber, it will disrupt the flow of ions and set off the alarm.
Photoelectric smoke detectors: With photoelectric smoke detectors, light caused by smoke will trigger the alarm. This type of smoke detector will respond more efficiently to smoldering fires.
Dual-sensor smoke detectors: This is the recommended option for most homes. Dual-sensor devices feature both ionization and photoelectric technology for greater efficiency and protection.
Maintaining and Testing Your Smoke Detector
Ensure the efficiency of your smoke detector with regular testing and battery replacement.
It’s recommended to have your device tested once a month. If the smoke detector isn’t responding to the test, replace the batteries and try again; if it is still not responding, there could be faulty wiring that will require professional attention.
Smoke detector batteries should be replaced annually. Lightly cleaning your smoke detector at this time is recommended as well.
Over time, dust and debris can build up in the smoke detector, which can affect its efficiency. As a result, a full device replacement is recommended every ten years.
