If you missed the news recently about types of smoke detectors to have in a RI real estate home, I would like to recap this information.
There are 2 different types of smoke detectors: ionization ones and photoelectric ones. Nearly all homes have ionization smoke detectors because builders tend to use these upon building a home. But what about photoelectric smoke detectors?
Recent testing by fire labs are showing a VAST difference in how smoke detectors alert homeowners when a fire is burning.
Ionization smoke detectors tend to respond quicker to fast fires and will alert you quicker. Photoelectric smoke detectors will alert you sooner to ‘smoldering fires’ that will generate a lot of smoke. So what are you to do? Check out this video now:
Recent testing shows that photoelectric smoke detectors will alert you many minutes earlier to smoldering fires than ionization detectors. In fact, they will save your life so your family does not suffocate from the smoke. This is an eye opening alert for most homeowners.
Recommended course of action: Have BOTH types of smoke detectors in your house. Certainly outside or within the bedrooms you want a photoelectric smoke detectors.
