Smoke detectors are one of your first defenses to stay safe from fire. When properly installed and maintained, they can alert you to trouble at the first whiff of smoke and reduce the risk of death by half. More than 40 percent of home fire deaths result from fires in properties without working smoke alarms. That’s why it’s so important that homes have at least one smoke detector.
They’re not just for cooking! Smoke detectors have saved my family from ashes and burning grease a few times over the years.

Smoke detectors are a threat detector. They are not as sensitive to invisible gasses, but hey do have an impact on O2 levels. As it was described to me, smoke detectors can tell if a smoldering fire has been set versus if the flame is out. It’s like closing your eyes while you are in a very dark room, you can still see everything around you because your eyes have adjusted properly in the dark. A smoke alarm or smoke detector might be able to detect “smokeless” fire damage faster than your eyes and brain can process because it does not require your senses – just a reaction to O2 depletion that might take your eyes 10 seconds or more to detect. That being said, carbon monoxide detectors are much better at detecting CO leakages that may not necessarily wake you up from sleeping until it is too late – without sensors ringing in your ears before the life-threatening effects of CO begin occurring.
There are many things we do every day that help to keep our homes and families safe, but it’s hard to believe that something as simple as a smoke alarm can be one of them. If you’re ready to take the plunge and buy some useful smoke detectors for your home, or just want to make sure your smoke alarms are working properly, this is the guide for you.
