After blogging about smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors for the last few months, I decided to replace all the smoke detectors in my home with a combination detector. This new generation of combination detectors provide protection against fire and Carbon Monoxide (CO) all in one unit. The second factor that makes these combination detectors practical is the price… there are many choices in these dual units that are almost the same cost as a single unit.
I plan on adding a combination alarm on every level of my home and make sure my family has the maximum protection possible. (note: these new detectors also install with a minimal effort)
I know… Fall is here and I need to clean gutters, insulate a few windows, prepare the yard for winter, and get ready to start watching a season of football, but these new alarms will have to come first.
