5 Safety Devices Every Homeowner Needs


Your home should be a place where you can relax and have peace of mind. However, fires, gas leaks, and electrical malfunctions could put you at risk for serious injuries or death. In order to increase your safety in your home, it is important to install a variety of home safety devices.

There Are 5 Main Home Safety Devices We Can Install:

  1. Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCIs)

Arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) replace circuit breakers to shut down your home’s electrical power as soon as a hazardous condition arises. This can help prevent fires from overheated or damaged electrical wiring. Installing AFCIs will provide an extra safety measure to reduce the risk of an electrical fire in your home.

  1. Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs)

Ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) also monitor the flow of electricity through specific circuits in your home. They are commonly installed in bathrooms, kitchens, and garages, and are designed to protect people from electric shock injuries and electrocution.

  1. Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarms

Carbon monoxide alarms should be installed in every room where a person sleeps, and on every floor of your home. Gas leaks and rising carbon monoxide levels in your home may lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, as well as fires and explosions. In order to avoid dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in your home, it is important to install carbon monoxide alarms in various places, and to check your alarm at least once a month.

  1. Smoke Alarms

Having multiple smoke alarms installed in your home is essential for alerting you to a fire hazard. We will install high quality smoke alarms and help you stay protected from a house fire.

  1. Tamper-Resistant Receptacles

Tamper-resistant receptacles are used instead of traditional wall outlets to protect children from electrocution and electric shock injuries. Since children may try to put their fingers or other objects in wall outlets, it is important to have a tamper-proof option to reduce the risk of injuries. We will installed a tamper-resistant receptacle to help childproof your home.
