Smoke Detector Recommendations for DFW Homeowners

call optech smoke detector

At least one smoke detector should be installed on every level of a home. Having a smoke detector in every bedroom or sleeping area is ideal.

Our experts at TopTech Electric can help you identify the best locations for installing a smoke detector based on requirements and recommendations provided by the National Fire Protection Association and manufacturer guidelines.

Choosing the Right Type of Smoke Detector for Your DFW Metroplex Home

There are three types of smoke detectors available.

Our team is happy to discuss your smoke detector installation options in more detail and recommend the best products for your home.

Ionization smoke alarms

These types of smoke detectors are efficient at responding to flaming fires. If smoke enters the device’s ionization chamber, the flow of ions will be disrupted, setting off the alarm.

Photoelectric smoke alarms

These devices are designed to respond quickly to smoldering fires. If light caused by smoke is reflected on the sensor, the alarm is triggered.

Dual-sensor smoke alarms

This option utilizes both ionization and photoelectric technology to provide more effective and efficient protection. It is the recommended option for many homes.

Testing and Maintaining Your Smoke Detector

Smart Home | TopTech Electric Tarrant County Electrical Professionals

In order to ensure the continued efficiency of your device, monthly testing is recommended. If the alarm doesn’t sound after pushing the “test” button, try to replace the batteries; if the device is still not responding, the issue could be caused by faulty wiring and will require a professional inspection.

The batteries on your smoke detector should be replaced every year. We also recommend lightly cleaning your device during this time as well.

A full replacement of your smoke detector should be carried out every 10 years. Over time, dust and other debris can build up inside the unit, which can affect the efficiency of the sensors.

I called Top Tech because of their reviews on Google. WE had some bad luck with contractors earlier in the year, and not doing sufficient vetting of contractors. Allan arrived amazingly close to the beginning of the window predicted, was able to isolate the issue and replace an outlet, fuse and install an additional outlet in a short period of time. He was pleasant, honest and straightforward. Top Tech is n0t cheap, but the work is quality. I would definitely use them again.
