Keeping Your Family Out of Harm’s Way with Smoke Detector Repair

Smoke Detector Repair by Wiring a smoke detector into your house’s main electrical power source is often the safest option for many homeowners. With this solution, you don’t have to worry about the batteries dying. Plus, the units throughout your home can be interconnected so that they will all sound at once if smoke is detected in a room. At Dr. Sparky, our electricians can easily install these detectors for you. We can also advise you if a different kind of detector installation is a better choice for your home.

Smoke Detector Types

There are two types of residential smoke detectors: ionization and photoelectric. Ionization smoke detectors use electrically-charged particles to detect smoke in the air and are more responsive to flaming fires (such as a tipped candle igniting a curtain). Photoelectric smoke detectors use a light beam to detect smoke and are better at detecting smoldering fires (such as a cigarette) accidental fire.

    Why You Need Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Detectors

    Carbon monoxide and smoke detectors are an integral part of any home. They are your home’s first defense against potential fires and gas leaks, and alert your family to evacuate at the first sign of something amiss. They are also both legally required for private residences in Ontario, so not having them could cost you in more ways than one.

    Carbon Monoxide in Your Home

    You may be wondering where a carbon monoxide leak could even come from in today’s electric-centric world. But there are many appliances in your home that still run on gas and could be a potential source of leaks, including;
    • Furnaces
    • Stoves
    • Water heaters
    • Space heaters
    • Clothes dryers
    • Car exhaust
    • Clogged chimneys
