changed? contact 6's jenna sachs reveals why older smoke alarms might not give your family the best protection in a fire. natsot: fire truck siren often, the difference between life and death in a fire is a working smoke alarm. natsot: smoke detector beeping "a dead detector in a home is pretty much useless..." twice a year fire prevention officer, jt camp and his team reminds people to pay extra attention to their what you might not know: if your smoke alarm is more than 10 years old, its time for a new one as the sensors inside can lose sensitivity. "the biggest thing we push is change your clock, change your battery." consumer reports tests smoke detectors by creating two types of common household fires. "smoldering fire and we have a fast fire. so two different conditions." photoelectric alarms are best at detecting smoky, slow-building fires, while ionization alarms are best at detecting fast, flaming fires. so which is better for your
than the other. theyre complementary. thats why we always recommend that you get an alarm that has both types of sensors." consumer reports says the best type of alarms have a dual sensor and can be interconnected. these two 30-dollar models from kidde and first alert are top-rated. "when theyre interconnected if one alarm goes off every alarm in your house is gonna go off. that will protect you from a distant fire and give you more time to get out of the house." some newer smoke alarms are made with lithium-ion ba ten years and these batteries are not replaceable. consumer reports says its a good idea to note in marker on the back of the alarm when you got the alarm and when you should replace it. i'm jenna sachs contact 6. do you have a consumer issue or investigation idea? give jenna a call!! the number is on you screen or you can file a complaint on the contact 6 page at fox-6-now-dot-com.
