Change a Battery, Save a Life.
When's the last time you replaced your smoke & CO2 detectors batteries? ⏰
We often forget about these valuable detectors mounted on our ceilings, and therefore forget to check their batteries.
Smoke & CO2 detectors are a vital part of each home. These devices can be life-saving to you and your family in situations where you could have otherwise been unaware, too slow, or slept through.
Most smoke alarms take a 9-volt battery. In a 9-volt battery alarm, you should test the device monthly, replace the batteries every 6 months - 1 year, and replace the entire smoke alarm every 10 years.
It's a good idea to synchronize changing your smoke and CO detector batteries with the changing of the clocks. Once the new batteries are in, hit the "test button" to make sure the alarm is functioning properly. If it isn't working properly, run (don't walk) to your nearest hardware store and replace it. Vacuum dust off of the units and wipe clean if necessary.
Take a couple minutes today replace your detectors old batteries with new ones, to maintain your homes safety.
