Here are some common issues you might encounter with your smoke detector or carbon monoxide (CO) alarm:
- Your alarm could be dirty.
Dust, dirt—even insects—can make their way into your alarm and cause it to trigger falsely. Look on the back to see if the manufacturer recommends a specific cleaning method. If not, go over it gently with a vacuum nozzle.
- Your alarm is chirping.
A chirping sound is a warning bell. It usually means the battery is dying—or it could be a sign that your alarm is due for replacement. Smoke alarms typically should be replaced every 10 years.
- Moisture is setting off your alarm.
We recommend keeping your alarms at least three feet away from the bathroom. It is possible for steam from a shower to set off your alarm. Along those same lines, an alarm installed near a stove or oven is more like to trigger. Keep the alarms away from your appliances.
- You have a loose wire.
A hardwired alarm system with backup batteries will beep if there is a loose wire. You can remove the alarm from the bracket to see if you notice a visibly loose wire. AAA Electrical Services will be there promptly to fix the problem.
- You have a broken circuit.
Check your electrical panel to ensure all your circuits are drawing power.
