While smoke detectors remain an invaluable fixture for every home, they don’t provide the ideal solution for temperature detection. When it comes to measuring heat levels, you need a specialized heat detector that triggers whenever the temperature reaches an extreme level. At Home Security Store, we carry the Web’s ultimate selection of sophisticated heat detectors, all available at the most competitive prices.
Finding the Ideal Location
Heat detectors work extremely well in areas where smoke detectors are not recommended. For instance, you might mount heat detectors in your kitchen, garage or attic. These devices are equipped with heat sensors that activate at a specific temperature. The target temperature might be pre-installed—such as at 120 degrees F—or customizable. In addition, the alarm might be set to activate due to a drastic rise in temperature, such as a rate-of-rise element of approximately 15 degrees F per minute.
Heat vs Smoke
When it comes to choosing and installing fire protection for your home, it’s best to use a combination of heat and smoke detectors for complete coverage. Just keep in mind that heat detectors are meant to complement rather than replace your smoke detectors. Your smoke detector will alert you of imminent fire, while your heat detector will alert you potentially dangerous temperature shifts, even in the absence of smoke and fire.
Change Your Batteries Often
Finally, remember to change the batteries in your heat and smoke detectors at least once a year; it’s one of the simplest ways to reduce death and injury, and we can’t overstate how important it is to keep your detectors functioning at peak levels. Fire departments recommend that you change the batteries when changing clocks back to standard time every fall. If you hear your heat or smoke detector chirping on and off, change the batteries immediately.
