Different Types of Smoke Detectors in British Columbia, Canada
Smoke detectors fall into two main categories, depending on their power source:
- Hardwired detectors: connect up to the mains and so draw power as necessary. They have a battery backup in case of power outages, but not for daily use. The advantage here is that you can connect all the detectors so they go off simultaneously for maximum protection.
- Battery-powered detectors: are less expensive and very easy to install yourself. The downside is that a battery failure means the entire system fails. Also, as the units are unconnected, people far away from the one going off may not hear the warning.
The other significant difference between models is how they detect smoke. Let our trusted technicians at Sasquatch Home Services help you decide what’s best for your home.
