Types of Smoke Detectors

There are two types of smoke detectors: ionization smoke detectors and photoelectric smoke detectors. The type we'll install depends on the age of your home and type of ceiling material you have.

Ionization smoke detectors are better at detecting smoke in homes with newer construction. They are also better at detecting low-level smoke, which is better at detecting electrical fires.

Photoelectric smoke detectors are better at detecting fires using high temperatures, such as fires caused by burning food in the oven. Either type of smoke detector can save your family’s life, so it is important to educate yourself on which type of smoke detector is best for your home.

During our conversation, our electricians will advise you on the best type of smoke detector to install based on the age of your home and any special features you may want, such as a smoke detector that runs on batteries in case of power outages. 

Installing New Smoke Detectors in New Braunfels

Installing smoke detectors is not a do-it-yourself project. The fire code requires that smoke detectors are installed by a licensed electrician, and the electrician must be insured to work in your home.
