In order to ensure the continued efficiency of your device, monthly testing is recommended. If the alarm doesn’t sound after pushing the “test” button, try to replace the batteries; if the device is still not responding, the issue could be caused by faulty wiring and will require a professional smoke alarm services.
The batteries on your smoke detector should be replaced every year. We also recommend lightly cleaning your device during this time as well.
A full replacement of your smoke detector should be carried out every 10 years. Over time, dust and other debris can build up inside the unit, which can affect the efficiency of the sensors. Visit TopTech Electric to learn more.
