Why Should I Install a Fire Sprinkler System in My Home?
When paired with a smoke alarm, a fire sprinkler is a valuable asset to your home’s safety. Smoke alarms only alert you to trouble, while sprinklers help reduce the effects of fires and give your family time to evacuate before help arrives.
Will the Fire Sprinkler Go Off If I Burn Toast? Will My Home Get Soaked?
Unlike smoke alarms, fire sprinklers do not react to smoke. Instead, a properly installed fire sprinkler system senses heat. A fire will provide enough of a change in temperature to trigger the sprinkler. As a result, only the heat from a genuine fire will activate a sprinkler.
As for your home getting soaked by multiple sprinklers going off at once–there is an 85% chance that only one sprinkler will go off during a fire, so you don’t have to worry about water damage in your home.
Generally, the sprinkler closest to the fire is the only one that will go off; when it does, it will direct the water towards the fire, so the rest of your home stays dry.
Have an Existing Your Fire Sprinkler That Needs Maintenance and Testing?
You might face problems when it comes to the connections between sprinklers. For example, some connections will break, which will prevent each sprinkler from coming on during a fire.
This is why maintenance and testing are two important factors to consider when you install a fire sprinkler system. Routine testing ensures that all aspects of the system are prepared to handle a potential fire, while regular maintenance will take care of minor issues that are more difficult to notice beforehand.
When you work with Maccarone Plumbing, we’ll make sure your home’s fire sprinkler system is compliant with NFPA standards.
