Radon Sirens – if the siren goes off, be sure to call a radon remediation specialist as soon as possible. Radon is proven to cause lung cancer and other types of health risks.
Smoke Detectors – in the event that residents in the home are sleeping and a fire is started for instance, smoke detectors alert owners and make them take action fast. This means exiting the property and alerting the fire department if the fire is out of control. For smaller fires, such as when cooking for instance, a fire extinguisher should be kept handy to eliminate small fires that can quickly turn into very large problems.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors – this is a silent killer and can be caused by the HVAC system and other sources in your home. It’s important that every home is equipped with one.
Burglar Alarms – while these may not be essential, they can still be considered and life or death tool.
One other option is to hire a security service provider that combines all of the above services and more. From radon testing and abatement services, to instant locks that can only be cracked with a key code, and even being able to control all of your appliances while you’re away from home, the combined service can be locked into one affordable price. Nothing beats peace of mind.
