It's Time to Change the Smoke Alarm Batteries!
 
Loading Image...
 
Humble Fire Rescue is reminding the residents of the City of Humble to change the batteries in their smoke alarms as daylight savings approaches. As soon as you change the batteries or replace your smoke alarm, It’s recommended to test them out by pressing and holding the button to ensure you hear the loud beep.

I'd recommend testing the batteries first....Smoke alarms don't take much "juice" and usually have 9volt batteries in them that have an average life of 3-5 years....Changing them yearly regardless of condition would be a waste....Not to mention that most modern smoke detectors will start to "chirp" when the battery gets low so they basically self-test constantly....

@EddyFree : That chirp, yes .... DH was over half deaf and hadn't been able to hear that chirp for several years, so it never bothered him. Only me. On my last trip inside our home, I noticed one had started to chirp. I was happy to walk out saying ... "Not my problem" ...

@Catmae : LOL, I don't blame you. I buy new ones and still keep the old ones going. When they start chirping I have to find where it is. I am sure the guys must hide them.

@ladybeachbum : I didn't mind changing them out, but the ceilings in some places were 20' high. I would still attempt to change. Once I lost my leg, everything changed.

So I have 9 smoke alarms in this place. Not changing them with the time change. I wait until the 'Chirp', which usually starts around 3am.
