How To Ensure Your Smoke Detectors Pass Inspection
A common electrical code violation is related to smoke alarms. While these might seem like minor electrical devices, it’s essential to make sure they are up to code.
To ensure your smoke detectors pass inspection, our electricians recommend making sure the following criteria are met:
- Devices are installed outside each sleeping area and on every level of your home, including the basement.
- Alarms should be installed in the living room, den, family room, and near the stairway to the upper level of the home.
- Devices in the basement should be installed on the ceiling at the bottom of the stairs leading to the next level.
- Alarms should be located at least 3 meters from a cooking appliance to avoid false alerts when cooking.
- Units should be installed high on walls.
