Frequently Asked Questions About Smoke Detectors

Knowing more about fire safety is an important step you can take to keep your home and family safe. Switch Electric is here to help you take this step by answering your questions about smoke detectors and other elements of fire safety.

How does a smoke detector work?

A smoke detector works using a sensor that monitors for smoke. Once the sensor is triggered, an alarm sounds to warn occupants of the potential fire risk so they can safely escape.

Do you offer smoke detectors for those who are hard of hearing?

Yes. We can customize your fire safety system to meet your individual needs, including accommodating your hearing disability. We offer systems with strobe lights or other indicators that do not rely on sound. We can discuss these options with you as part of your free quote.

When do I need to replace my smoke detector?

All smoke detectors must be replaced 10 years after their manufacture date. This date is usually marked on the unit itself. However, a sign that the smoke detector is failing and needs to be replaced is a chirping noise that continues after the battery has been changed.
