There are over one million fires reported every year. Of those fires, over 3000 result in death, 18,000 end in injury, and these fires result in over $11 billion in financial loss. House fires can be caused by a variety of reason, electrical problems, fires caused by Christmas trees, dryers, or by the negligence of one of the occupants of the home. With statistics like these, it is important to do what you can to prevent a house fire. The best way to do so is a new fire alarm installation in Newnan GA. There are several benefits of upgrading your current fire alarm system.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Older fire alarms only detect smoke. They do not let you know when there is a carbon monoxide leak in the house. Carbon monoxide is known a silent killer. You cannot see the gas, or smell the gas, but it can quickly overcome you, causing death. The newer fire alarms will alert you to both fire and carbon monoxide.
As your fire alarm system ages, it may not be as effective. New alarm systems are much more sensitive, and you can be sure that they are in perfect working order.
Meet Fire Codes
When you purchase a new home, it is necessary to have an inspection done by the Fire Marshall. This inspection includes an inspection of the fire alarm system in the home. When you have a new fire alarm installation, you can be sure that your system meets the necessary codes, allowing the Fire Marshall to file a fire certificate for your home.
One very effective way to put a fire out fast is to have a sprinkler system installed. When you have a new system installed, you can have a sprinkler system installed as well.
