I heard some where that a good time to test your smoke alarm is when you turn your clocks for Daylight Savings. Guilty, I never manage to do so. I’m sure you’re familiar with that annoying beep your smoke alarm makes… Coincidentally, it always seems to be in the middle of the night in my experience!
Who wants to go digging for new batteries and doing smoke alarm maintenance at 3 AM? Not me!
“Overall, smoke alarms have been cited as a great success story in this country’s efforts to reduce fire death rates, but persistent problems have been identified along the way that continue to hamper our ability to reduce home fire deaths,” said J. William Degnan, state fire marshal, New Hampshire and president, NASFM . “Consumers with battery-operated smoke alarms should use 10-year batteries in tamper-resistant units to help ensure that they will have that early warning if it is needed. A sealed-in, 10-year battery takes the burden off consumers to remember to change smoke alarm batteries, and it will save lives.”
With Kidde’s Worry Free smoke alarms you can forget about having to change those batteries twice a year. Kidde’s Worry Free Smoke Alarms have a 10 year lithium battery sealed in!
Getting a new smoke alarm every ten years is so much better than risking those old batteries in an emergency situation. Feeling safe in your own home is so important and while we get ready to turn up the heat this winter, do some cooking in the kitchen, and even decorating for Christmas, we’re at risk for fire.
Kidde Worry Free Kitchen Smoke Alarms are equipped with smart-sensing technology so it won’t go off if you simply burn some toast. In fact, each Worry-Free Kitchen Alarm is designed with location-specific features, such as super-bright LEDs in the Hallway Alarm and an added voice warning in the Bedroom Alarm to help wake those who may sleep through the traditional beep.
NFPA recommends installing smoke alarms on each floor, inside and outside of sleeping areas. However, survey results show less than a quarter of homeowners comply with this recommendation, and three out of four homeowners don’t know where to place alarms.
