Smoke Detectors

Keep Your Family Safe

If a fire occurs in your home, how much time do you think you have to escape before it’s too late? Ten minutes? Five? That’s what most people think. But, sadly, they’re wrong. According to the American Red Cross, fire experts agree we have just two minutes—that’s 120 seconds—to escape a burning home safely!

That’s where smoke detectors play a vital role. They are the unsung watchdogs in homes, providing a critical early warning of fire. It’s estimated that, on average, seven people die every day in the United States in a house fire. But a working smoke alarm can cut the risk of death from a home fire in half.

Working smoking detectors truly do save lives.

Trust Frog’s Training and Experience

There are two different types of smoke detectors: Hardwired and battery operated. It’s important to keep in mind that installing either system in your home is better than no system at all.

But there are advantages and disadvantages to both systems, and the experts at Frog will walk you through the pros and cons of each system and help you make the choice that’s right for you.

A battery-operated system can be less expensive, but it may not alarm for as long as a hardwired system. Plus, the batteries must be changed regularly. A hardwired system is usually more costly, but it will alarm until it is turned off. In addition, the individual alarms can be interconnected, increasing your chance of knowing about a fire even if you’re not near the alarm that detects it. It’s also important to keep in mind that a battery-powered system has no back-up system, while a hardwired system has a back-up battery that takes over when the power goes out.
