Worry-Free Smoke Detector Installation & Service for Allentown, PA and greater Lehigh Valley, PA area

Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Having functioning smoke detectors in your home is crucial for ensuring the safety of your loved ones. Smoke inhalation is a leading cause of fire-related deaths, and early detection can be the difference between a minor inconvenience and a devastating tragedy. At Lehigh Valley Electric, we offer top-of-the-line smoke detector installation and service for Allentown and the surrounding Lehigh Valley area.

Why Choose Hard-Wired Smoke Detectors?

  • Enhanced Reliability: Hard-wired smoke detectors are connected directly to your home's electrical system, eliminating the need for battery replacements. This ensures they are always operational and eliminates the risk of forgetting to change a dying battery.
  • Interconnected Functionality: Multiple hard-wired smoke detectors can be interconnected throughout your home. When one detector sounds the alarm, all of them will activate, creating a louder and more comprehensive warning. This ensures everyone in the house is alerted to a potential fire, regardless of their location.
  • Long-Term Value: Hard-wired smoke detectors typically have a longer lifespan compared to battery-powered models. This translates to fewer replacements and maintenance costs over time.

Lehigh Valley Electric Installs High-Quality Smoke Detectors

Our team of experienced electricians will professionally install smoke detectors in your home, ensuring optimal placement and functionality. We recommend smoke detectors be placed on every level of your home, including the basement, and outside each sleeping area.

Additional Safety Measure: Carbon Monoxide Detectors

While smoke detectors are essential for fire safety, carbon monoxide is another invisible threat in your home. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that can be deadly in high concentrations. We also offer installation of long-lasting, hard-wired carbon monoxide detectors to provide an extra layer of protection for your family.

Installing Hard-Wired Smoke Detectors & Combo Alarms

A Carbon Monoxide alarm is just as important as a smoke detector. Installing a hard-wired smoke detector in key locations of your home is vitally important. Battery-powered smoke alarms are better than nothing, but a hard-wired smoke alarm is best. The unit will come with a long-life lithium battery backup in case the main power goes out. This will ensure that you and your loved ones are protected from both fires and carbon monoxide, no matter the conditions.

The number of smoke detectors you need depends on the layout of your home and your own preferences. Generally, a smoke detector should be installed outside each bedroom and on each additional story of the house, including the basement. You can also install smoke detectors in the bedrooms, furnace areas, dining rooms, utility rooms, and hallways. We recommend not sleeping with the bedrooms closed unless you have a smoke detector installed in the room.

Combo alarms can be installed to monitor for smoke and carbon monoxide. Our worry-free Kiddie hard-wired smoke detectors and CO alarms are backed by a 10-year warranty. If your smoke alarm hasn't been replaced in the last 10 years or you have battery-operated smoke detectors and would like to convert, call our Allentown electricians at Lehigh Valley Electric, Inc for a quote.
