Smoke and Carbon Monoxide

There are many factors when we talk about residential smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.  We can talk brand, model, photoelectric, ionization, combination, dual, hardwired, interconnected, battery operated, battery back-up, plug-in, etc.  Some of the determining factors needed to answer the questions you may have are: When was the house built? Has the house gone through any major renovation?  specially electrical upgrade? If so, what year did the renovations take place? Is the house a single family or multifamily?  To quickly and easily answer some of these questions click here to take a look at our quick reference chart for smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
