Spring Maintenance | Easy Upgrade to a First Alert Alarm

We have a few weeks left in spring, so Germaine and I are steadily checking off our spring cleaning tasks. We’re pretty much done with outdoor tasks, so this week, we’re focusing on the indoors. On our list today is replacing  one of our remaining smoke alarms that are original to our home for First Alert 10-Year Sealed Battery Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarms.

We bought this home twenty years ago and just recently started updating our alarms. One reason we waited so long is we didn’t realize they should be replaced  at least every ten years.

Did you know that?

Yep…alarms don’t last forever, but it’s easy to see if yours need to be replaced.

All you have to do is check the date on the back of your alarms. You’re looking for a date that will tell you when your alarm was manufactured. If it is 10-years old, then it’s time to replace your alarms too!

So if you’re like us and didn’t know, this post is for you.

Don’t wait to replace! Did you know alarms don’t last forever? Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms should be replaced at least every ten years.

We’re updating our alarm with the First Alert 10-Year Sealed Battery Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm. A 10-year sealed battery alarm eliminates the need for battery replacements for the life of the alarm. Not only that, but these alarms eliminate that annoying chirping sound when it’s time for a battery change.

Installing the new alarm not only gives us peace of mind in case of fire, but also assurance tmat we’ll be alerted in the event of a carbon monoxide leak. Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and deadly gas. That literally means we could be enjoying a relaxing afternoon on the couch and not be aware carbon monoxide is in the air without a First Alert CO alarm to detect it.

Sources of carbon monoxide include fuel-burning appliances like clothes dryers, water heaters, and fumes from a vehicle. To keep our family safe, installing First Alert 10-Year Sealed Battery Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm on both floors of our home just makes sense.
