Winter is the leading season for home fires according to the United States Fire Administration (USFA). The increased risk of house fires during the winter comes from multiple sources and it’s important to be aware of all of them. Personal heating equipment, candles, holiday decorations, and holiday cooking all contribute to an increased risk of a house fire starting, so it’s important to be aware of the different hazards and be careful. However, no matter how careful you are, sometimes there are factors outside of your control that can lead to a fire, that’s when you need a home security system from Chesapeake System Services.
A drier fire starts in your basement, it quickly spreads in your laundry room, feeding off of the clothes and chemicals, but you’re asleep upstairs, and the basement fire alarm isn’t loud enough to be heard through two floors and closed doors. The National Fire Protection Associate (NFPA) reports that the majority of people who die from a house fire in the United States were found in different rooms then where the fire started. However, if you have smoke detectors connected to your Chesapeake System Services home control system and a fire starts all of the alarms are activated, allowing you and your family more time to escape your home. This can mean the difference getting your family safely out the door and being trapped and waiting for the fire department on the third floor.
Automated Alerting the Fire Department
You’re at work and your children at school, meanwhile, unbeknownst to you, a squirrel has gotten into your attic and chewed through the wires to your ceiling lights. An electric fire has started at your home with no one to report it. By the time neighbors notice the flames licking at your roof and the damage has already been done. Chesapeake System Services fire alarms are not only connected to each other, to make sure the whole home is alerted in the instance of a fire, they’re also monitored twenty-four hours a day, and connected to you via your e-mail or cell-phone. So now, when that pesky squirrel comes back for seconds, you and the fire department know about it right away.
