Smoke Detector & Carbon Monoxide Detector Installation
Expert Smoke Detector & Carbon Monoxide Detector Installation
One of the key safety features in your home often gets neglected. Smoke detectors are required in all newly constructed homes, but every home needs working smoking detectors. Each one needs monthly testing, should have its batteries changed each spring and fall, and must be replaced every 7-10 years.
Do you have the right number of detectors in your home? Required locations include inside bedrooms, in hallways outside of bedroom doors, and at least one on each additional level of the home.
According to data from the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), though most U.S. homes have at least one smoke alarm, three of every five home fire deaths occurred in homes with either no working smoke detectors or no detectors at all.
Make sure your detectors are 120-volt and have a backup battery. The NFPA recommends having your smoke alarms interconnected, so that they all go off at the same time, making the warning clear from any place in the house.
Your home’s safety isn’t complete without another important source of detection—carbon monoxide (CO) detectors. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that is produced when fuel is burned in vehicles, small engines, grills, fireplaces, furnaces and gas ranges. It is poisonous and potentially deadly to humans and animals when it builds up in indoor spaces.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 400 Americans die from CO poisoning each year, while more than 20,000 people go to the ER and 4000 are hospitalized. Though everyone is at risk, certain groups are especially vulnerable, such as infants and the elderly and those with chronic health conditions such as heart disease, anemia or breathing problems.
Your home should have a battery-operated or battery backup detector outside of bedrooms. Detectors with digital readouts can also tell you the level of CO in your home. Be sure to change the battery each time you change your clock, in the spring and the fall, and replace your CO detector every five years. Combination smoke and CO detectors are especially convenient.
In addition to properly maintained detectors, protect yourself and your family from CO poisoning by having your heating system serviced by a qualified technician each year, along with gas, oil or coal-burning appliances.

By far the best company I have worked with. Everyone is very friendly, knowledgable, and has my best interests in mind. I was absolutely shocked by the quick response time. I loved that everyone who came to my house explained the issues, the product, and thoroughly answered any questions that I had. I will definitely be a lifetime customer and recommend Ragsdale to anyone needing HVAC, plumbing, or electrical assistance.
My AC unit was affected by a lightning storm on Sunday. I called Ragsdale to get emergency service since we all know how HOT it gets in Georgia. I received a call back from the technician (Patrick) and he said he would be there in about 30mins. His arrival time was accurate and he got right to work diagnosing the issue after I explained what happened.
