Re: Safty Tip For All

Another tip, spend a few extra dollars to get a hard-wired detector...no more risking having a dead battery at the wrong time.

The one nearest my kitchen is hard-wired. I added another one downstairs by the laundry room/garage door that uses the 9V. Changed it last week. Since there is significantly more risk of a kitchen fire, I'm glad that's the one that will never have a dead battery. (actually had some oil flame up last year on me, on the stovetop...used an oil with lower flare-up temp and was unaware until AFTER the flames). Luckily, I keep an extinguisher tucked right beside the fridge and got it out immediately. Had to repaint the kitchen though!

No more making deep-fried doughnuts at home for me...not worth the risk!

Kitchen fires while they are a problem most are known about before the alarm ever goes off because someone is in the kitchen cooking. Hard wired is best but if your house was not prewired it can be expensive to have that done. All 9v alarms do chirp for like two weeks warning about a dead battery so that should not be a big deal. We have 5 smoke alarms in our home. One in each bed room and then one in the hall of both upstairs and down stairs. Most people olny have them in the hallways but if a fire breaks out in a bedroom with a shut door then by the time the alarm goes off it could be too late.
