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.

Bobby arrived in the early half of the scheduled window. He was clean, polite and professional. He was courteous and did not block mine or the neighboring driveways with his truck. He provided an estimate upon arrival and went to work. He was able to diagnose the problem with my ceiling fan was the remote switching device, not the fan itself or the wiring in my home. He then removed the remote unit and hooked the fan up without the remote unit and restored my fan and light to normal function, sans remote control. I am very please to have the fan and light working again and with Bobby's work. He was here about 45 minutes in total.

Most professional group of technicians, cleaned up and all. Hiring and electricians and plumbers etc. are all ways outlandishly expensive but have to say this was money well spent. You got electric problems call Allen

We've used TopTech Electric for a few different projects at a couple of homes over the years. They are always professional, knowledgeable, and generally nice people. They did exactly what we asked for and the quality is great. We will definitely use them again in the future!

I had TopTech install 7 smoke detectors as well as fix a few outlets. Pricing was in line with 'national averages', electrician arrived on time with necessary tools/equipment and was done quickly. The electrician (Allan) was professional, helped explain what issues were and took photos of issues. Will recommend in the future to friends/family
