Most every family is aware of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning and have at least one CO detector in their home. The International Association of Fire Chiefs recommend having CO detectors installed on every level of your home, including one next to your heating equipment.
Hard-wired CO detectors provide more reliable detection because they regularly purge and reset – noting more accurate reads of carbon monoxide in the environment.
It is advantageous to have hard-wired smoke detectors. They can be inter-connected. So, if one fails, all of the other alarms will be triggered.
In Pennsylvania, smoke alarms are required in all residential dwellings. Newly constructed or renovated dwellings require hard-wired smoke alarms with battery back-up and interconnected. Smoke detectors are required in every bedroom and on each floor.
Hard-wired smoke detector units need to be replaced every 10 years. Carbon monoxide detectors last between 5 and 7 years.
