Everyone wants their Wichita, KS home to be a safe and cozy place, which is why you may want to book a smoke detector inspection by a professional electrician if you haven’t done one before. While you probably are capable of placing your own smoke detectors in your home, the advent of smart devices and smoke and carbon monoxide detectors that can be placed onto your home circuitry has made these safety devices even more powerful. Of course, if you plan to purchase devices that are plugged into your home electrical sources you will need an electrician to help with smoke detector wiring. The perk of choosing devices that operate on electricity instead of battery is that you never have to worry about a dead battery preventing proper notification. In addition to placement and smoke detector inspection, a trained electrician can also help with carbon monoxide detector placement.
Where to Place Carbon Monoxide Detectors
A lot of homeowners know that a smoke detector should be on every floor of a home and every bedroom where people sleep, but a lot are not as sure about carbon monoxide detector placement. Electricians
are trained on safety codes and are often hired by property owners for smoke detector inspection and installation because they will ensure all devices are at the proper location in a home. Ideally, when it comes to carbon monoxide detector placement you should have one unit on each level of your home including the basement. In addition, carbon monoxide detectors need to be placed at least five feet above floor level because carbon monoxide is lighter than air and most likely will rise above it. The ceiling is a popular location for carbon monoxide placement.
The following is a quick sum-up of where CO2 detectors should be placed:
- Every floor of your home
- Outside sleeping areas
- In the basement
- At least five feet above the ground
