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 knew where the problem was, but wanted a professional to do the repairs. They were quick to confirm and replace the faulted equipment.

Matthew and sidekick (sorry, didnt get his name) did an amazing job reviewing our GFCI issue and laid out our options in a clear consise way. We almost stumped the guys with our hot mess but they switched out all outlets on the entire circuit and now we are on newer devices with a 5 year warranty on parts and labor. Helps that these guys were personable to boot. Thanks guys! Shout out also to the woman who responded to my thumbtack request as well and called me back faster than I could blink. She was thorough and knowledgeable enough to get us set up with an appointment quickly.
