Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detector Services in Belmont
Installations & Replacements from HomeWiz
A fire can start at any time, and you may not always be aware when one does. Something accidentally left near a heat source can combust and start a fire. Too much light glaring through on fabric can cause it to burn. Even an unexpected problem with an electrical component that grows too old and melts down or catches fire could create an extremely dangerous situation for your home. The decision to install smoke detectors can literally be the difference between life and death, so the Belmont smoke detector experts at HomeWiz always suggest you take no chances.

Why You Need Quality Smoke Detectors
While smoke and carbon monoxide detectors have shown that they save lives time and time again, the truth is they can only do this if they’re functioning properly. Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors wear out with age, and they become less and less sensitive to the point where they simply don’t work at all after a while. In fact, sixty percent of home fire deaths were caused by old, non-functioning smoke alarms or no smoke alarms at all. This is why having smoke detectors is not only essential for your safety, but required by law.
Our team handles all types of smoke detector services, including:
- Smoke alarm replacement (which should be done every eight to ten years)
- Interconnect smoke alarms (setting them so that when one sounds, they all sound)
- Eliminating nuisance tripping (false alarms from oversensitivity)
- Ensuring compliance with safety laws (MA law requires smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your home, and local fire chiefs may have more stringent requirements)
Types of Smoke Detectors
There are a few different options when it comes to smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Photoelectric smoke detectors are more responsive to smoldering fires, including burning ashes and fires that may be in their early stages. However, ionization smoke detectors are more responsive to flaming fires, including small embers.
You also can opt to upgrade your home with modern technology and 24/7 surveillance. With smart detectors such as the Nest Protect, you can monitor your home—from both a smoke and carbon monoxide standpoint—through your smartphone. Before you make a decision, you should consult with an expert to find out what’s best for you. As a homeowner, it can be confusing to keep track of the specifics, but our team of electricians at HomeWiz can walk you through the steps, ensuring that your home and your family are safe.
