Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Debbie ManciniHome Tips

With the new year well upon us and the unpredictable Pittsburgh weather seeming like it’s calming down – and there’s no snow to shovel (for now) – we can start focusing our home maintenance efforts inwards. It’s a good time of year to start checking our detectors – they’re easy to forget about until they start blaring away, ruining your sleep, waking up the kids, the dogs, the cats, and probably the neighbors. Not to mention driving you insane the whole while. If you haven’t changed their batteries in a long time, now is a great time to start stocking up on batteries for them and making a quick replacement before they start screaming at you. Detector batteries should be changed at least once yearly and tested monthly, so we should take advantage of the time we have between the crazy seasons.
