Smoke alarm

Might not give your family the best protection in a fire.

Often the difference between life and death in a fire is a working smoke alarm.

>> the detector in a home is pretty much useless.

>> but this is what you might not know.

If your smoke alarm is more than 10 years old it's time for a new one, as the sensors inside can lose sensitivity.

>> the biggest one is change your clocks, change your batteries.

>> consumer reports checked two smoke detectors with two types of household fire.

>> smoldering fire and fast fire.

>> photo electric alarms are best at detecting smokey, slow burn fires, but while ion nation alarms are best at fast fires.

Which is best for your home?

>> the sensessers aren't better for the other.

They're complimentary and that's why we always recommend that you get an alarm that has both types of sensors.

>> the best types of alarms have a dual sensor and can be interconnected.

These two 30-dollar colleagues are top rated.

>> when they're interconnected if one alarm goes off every alarm in your house is going to go off and that will protect you from those distant fires, giving you more time to get out of the house.

>> we should point out some newer smoke alarms are made with lithium ion batteries that last as long as the unit, 10 years.

Use a marker and note on the back of the alarm when you got it.

You can get a free, yes i said free, smoke alarm through the red cross.
