Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Protect your home, your family, & your workplace.

Everyone has a unique opinion about smoke detectors. We think of the constant chirp they make when their batteries run low, or we remember this or that moment in the kitchen when smoke carried a little too far. Who hasn’t used a broom handle to shut off an overactive smoke detector before? Regardless of your experience, you probably think of smoke detectors as noisy, sensitive, and irritating safety equipment. But even in these less flattering memories, your smoke detector is working—just as it should.

Top Signs It’s Time To Replace Your Smoke Detectors

Like your HVAC equipment, your electrical panel, and your hot water heater, smoke detectors have a working lifespan. Some smoke detectors go the distance while others fall short. Furthermore, not all smoke detectors are engineered the same. Because everyone needs a smoke detector, manufacturers are all too happy to sell you a quick-and-dirty example that chirps constantly or stops working entirely.

These are the most common signs and symptoms of aging smoke detectors:

  • AGE: At a maximum, smoke detectors may last for 10 years. If you’ve noticed that your detectors are yellowing with age, it’s time to get new equipment installed.
  • CONSTANT CHIRPING: If your smoke detectors chirp, even after the batteries have been replaced, you may be better off with new equipment installed by trained electricians.
  • FALSE ALARMS: If your smoke detectors go off when there’s no smoke around, you need replacements. False alarms are never desirable and can be a real headache.
  • DOESN’T RESPOND TO TESTING: When you hit your detector’s test button, the equipment should respond. If it won’t test, it probably won’t detect smoke, either.
  • IT’S BEEN RECALLED: Product recalls are common occurrences. Search online for your manufacturer and model number to find the latest recall news.

Where To Place Fire Detectors in Tennessee Homes

For obvious reasons, fire safety is a matter of law. In public spaces, the state of Tennessee mandates smoke detector placement. In our homes, however, the laws can get a little fuzzy. Check your local ordinances before installing smoke detectors in new construction or existing homes.

When you’re ready for smoke detector installation, consider how many you need based on these suggested (sometimes mandated) regulations:

  • INSIDE BEDROOMS: Sleeping areas require smoke detectors inside the room.
  • OUTSIDE BEDROOMS: It’s wise (and sometimes required) to install detectors outside bedrooms.
  • ON EVERY LEVEL: Beyond bedrooms, homeowners need at least one smoke detector per floor.
  • LIVING ROOMS: Smoke detectors should be installed in living rooms—especially with fireplaces nearby.
  • BASEMENTS: Because we store flammable chemicals and equipment in our basements, smoke detectors belong there too.
