When it comes to protecting your property and family, smoke detectors are one of the most essential tools in your home. As long as you have a few of them, you may not have given a second thought to whether or not they are placed correctly or if you have the right number in your home to accommodate modern electrical codes.
According to the most recent research and requirements, smoke alarms should be placed inside every bedroom or sleeping location in your home. They should be hard-wired directly into your home’s electrical system, but they should have a backup battery that would allow them to continue functioning during a power outage. When your battery is running low, it should beep to alert you.
