Making your home a little safer is always welcome. One way you can make your home a little safer is by having hard-wired smoke detectors installed. Because the devices will need to be wired directly into your home’s main electrical, you will need to have a San Diego electrician complete the job. The team at CLD Electric can take care of the installation for you in a professional, timely manner.
This particular type of smoke alarm is a step above the standard detectors that rely on batteries. When the alarm is hard-wired into the home’s main electrical, you get the benefit of every hard-wired detector in the home sounding within seconds of the first alarm going off. Having detectors installed in the kitchen, living room, hallways and bedrooms gives you a serious advantage over a single battery-powered smoke alarm explains an electrician. San Diego homeowners will have added minutes to their escape time in the event of a fire with these hard-wired options. With battery-powered detectors, you have to wait and waste precious minutes before the alarms are triggered. By then, the fire may have spread and become extremely dangerous. In a fire, every second counts.
Another reason to consider having this type of detector installed is the potential cost savings on your homeowner’s insurance. You may be eligible for a discount with the installation of hard-wired detectors by an electrician in San Diego on every floor and in the garage of your home. Don’t worry; the detectors also have battery backups in case there is a power outage or the fire has effected the electrical in the home. If you would like to make your home a little safer and give yourself a little peace of mind, give CLD Electric a call today and schedule your smoke detector installation.
