Today’s safety features exist to give us time, time that we might not have had in days gone by. That’s why we have smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors installed in our homes. However, having the right kind of safety systems can make all the difference. Consider that, according to the National Fire Protection Association, 60 percent of home fire deaths that took place between 2009 to 2013 occurred in homes with either no smoke alarms or no functional alarms. In instances when the alarm wasn’t functional, 46 percent of the alarms had batteries that were either disconnected or missing entirely.

Those statistics are why hardwired smoke and carbon monoxide detection systems are a standard feature in today’s modern homes. As long as electricity is running into the building, it can detect problems and respond. If the power is cut off, it’s standard for them to include battery back-up systems.
