Smoke detectors save lives. While deadly fires tend to strike at night while families sleep, as smoke and toxic gasses spread through the house, smoke detectors remain the last line of defense for you and your family. Even with the risk associated with not having one installed in the home, many Marietta homes are still on the fence. Properly installed and maintained, smoke detectors are the easiest and cheapest way to protect your family and at Snappy Electric, Plumbing, Heating, & Air, we’re here to help. We understand the importance of keeping your home and your family safe, which is why we offer smoke detector installation, replacement, and maintenance.

Choosing The Right Location For Smoke Alarms
The National Fire Protection Association recommends putting a smoke detector on every level of your home including basements, in each bedroom, and outside every sleeping area. When talking to your installation expert, ask about the advantages of using a combination smoke/carbon monoxide detector in critical areas.
These devices provide additional safety for your home and reduce installation costs if you need both types of devices. However, placement can be an issue. Smoke detectors work best when placed high on the ceiling. If you’re unsure or unable to get this system installed, we can help you with all your smoke detector installation needs.
How Often Should Your Detector Be Inspected?
While some locations require annual inspections, it’s common for smoke detectors to go unchecked for a while. As a responsible homeowner, you’re going to want to be sure you’re giving it a look every quarter or at the very least, every year. Generally, you’ll see a power light on the detector that indicates it’s on and working.
While it can sometimes be something as simple as replacing the batteries, other times a smoke detector repair may be needed. This can range from electrical wiring issues to an outdated system - both of which, our electrical contractors can help with!
In addition, we also offer whole house safety inspection services, as a great way to ensure your indoor safety and protection.
