Unfortunately, many homeowners overlook the significance of these devices and risk delayed fire detection.

We install the latest smoke detector models from reputable manufacturers in order to provide you with security and peace of mind. These systems quickly identify fast-burning and smoldering fires, allowing you to react quickly and get to safety.

Professional Smoke Detector Installation in Portage and Porter County

We use the latest technology and follow all safety protocols to install your smoke detectors. Our service includes a walk-through of your property to determine where smoke detectors are needed, any electrical framework adjustments needed, and the most efficient detector setup.

Our technicians are well-trained in testing and installation while adhering to manufacturer and NFPA guidelines. During installation, we check if your detectors are interconnected so that when one alarm sounds, all alarms throughout the home do so. This increases the likelihood that everyone hears the alarm and has time to react.

Where Are Smoke Detectors Required?

Strategic placement of smoke detectors can provide timely alerts in the event of smoke or fire. Amps & Volts Electric follows strict guidelines for installing these detectors in optimal locations. 

Building codes require smoke detectors be installed in all of the following:

  • Inside each bedroom
  • Outside each sleeping area
  • On every level of the home
  • In living areas, dens, or family rooms on levels without bedrooms
  • In basements, on the ceiling at the bottom of the stairs leading up to the next level  
  • At least 10 feet away from any kitchen appliances to reduce false alarms

Smoke alarms must be precisely placed for maximum effectiveness, depending on the room they are located in. Our skilled team will make sure that all new detectors are installed in the proper location.

How Often Should I Replace My Smoke Detectors?

Smoke detectors have a limited lifespan and require timely replacement to provide continuous protection. As a general rule, smoke detectors should be replaced every 10 years. However, you may need to replace your smoke detector sooner if it starts showing signs of malfunctioning.

Look out for these signs:

  • Persistent chirping: Even after replacing the batteries, if the detector continues to chirp, it signals that the unit is malfunctioning.
  • Failure during testing: A smoke detector that fails to sound during monthly tests is likely defective and needs replacement.
  • Outdated technology: If your home has older detectors, consider upgrading to newer models with advanced features like carbon monoxide detection.
  • Frequent false alarms: Repeated false alarms indicate the detector may have sensitivity issues or malfunction.
  • Visible wear or damage: Any signs of physical damage or wear can impair a detector's functionality. 
  • No alarm during an incident: If you've had a fire and your smoke detector did not sound, replace all units in the home immediately after the incident.
