When Should You Replace Your Smoke Detectors?

You should replace every smoke alarm in your home every 10 years to maintain full operational reliability. That holds up whether you’re dealing with a sealed-battery system, a hard-wired system, or one that requires regular battery replacements every six months.

However, an aging smoke detector can become unreasonably sensitive or lose sensitivity depending on its problems. If your smoke detectors have fresh batteries installed or a sealed battery but still seem too sensitive, not sensitive enough, etc., you’ll want to go ahead and replace them to ensure they’ll respond as expected during a fire.

Not sure whether it’s time to replace your smoke detectors? Contact HELP Electric today for assistance!

Why Hire an Electrician Instead of DIYing Smoke Detector Installation?

In theory, smoke detectors aren’t the hardest DIY job in the world, but they can be in practice. You risk nonfunctional or annoyingly trigger-happy detectors that activate every time someone takes a shower or boils water on the stove.

A professional electrician can properly install your smoke detectors in the right locations to avoid these issues. Any time you’re working with your home’s wiring, you should leave it to the licensed electricians at HELP Electric.

Frequently Asked Questions About Smoke Detectors


Why is a dying smoke detector more sensitive?

Ionization smoke detectors are activated when smoke disrupts the flow of ions between its two electrically charged plates. If the battery is dying or some other malfunction occurs, the current flowing through your sensor is reduced, giving a false alert.

What type of smoke detector is best?

Different smoke detectors are used for different reasons. Ionization alarms respond faster to flaming fires than photoelectric alarms, but photoelectric alarms respond faster to smoke from a smoldering fire. For this reason, some smoke detectors implement both technologies in a single hybrid design.

Should I have a smoke detector in my kitchen?

You want to have a smoke detector in every room of your home, including the kitchen, but you’ll want it installed a good distance from cooking appliances to prevent false alarms.

No one wants to suffer through nonstop alarms whenever they boil water or open the oven too quickly. Clever placement can give you the best of both worlds, protecting you against true fires and minimizing false alarms.
