How often should I change the batteries?
  • Replace the batteries when you adjust the clocks for daylight savings time, in the spring and fall.
  • If your smoke alarm starts making a "chirping" noise, replace the batteries and reset it.
  • If you cannot replace your own smoke detector batteries because of physical limitations, or you don't like to work on ladders, contact us. We'd be happy to install your batteries.
