Friendly Reminder to Check Smoke Alarms and CO Detector

At ARC Electric Company we care about our customers. This is your monthly reminder to check your smoke alarms and CO detector!

Testing Your Smoke Alarms
*Smoke alarms should be maintained according to manufacturer’s instructions.
*Test smoke alarms at least once a month using the “Test” button.
*Make sure everyone in the home understands the sound of the smoke alarm and knows how to respond.
*Follow manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning to keep smoke alarms working. The instructions are included in the package or can be found on the internet.
*Smoke alarms need a new battery at least once a year. If the alarm chirps, warning the battery is low, replace the battery right away.


Testing Your CO Detector
*Test CO alarms at least once a month using the “Test” button to ensure it is drawing electrical power. It will emit high-pitched, loud beeping, usually louder than a smoke detector. During this test it will also speak to you.
*Make sure everyone in the home understands the sound of the CO detector and knows how to respond.
*If the audible trouble signal sounds, check for low batteries and replace. If it still sounds, call the fire department.
*Replace CO detectors every 7 years.
