I am on a Smoke Detector Rant - Hear me Homeowners. As a realtor I go into homes daily with home buyers looking at homes. What disturbs me on end is the amount of times I see the smoke detectors hanging down with their batteries removed from them. Please hear me when I say put the batteries back in. It is a $2 cost well spent.
What I really want to focus on is the need for two types of smoke detectors in your home...not one but two! Ionization and photoelectric smoke detectors. Each reacts to fire and smoke in different ways and at different times on the continuum of saving your family.

Recent testing by fire labs are showing a VAST difference in how smoke detectors alert homeowners when a fire is burning.
Ionization smoke detectors tend to respond quicker to fast fires and will alert you quicker. Photoelectric smoke detectors will alert you sooner to ‘smoldering fires’ that will generate a lot of smoke. So what are you to do? Get both. Check out this video now:
