Rather than fret and worry about the potential of a fire, why not take proactive steps to protect your family?
You know the importance of storing your documents in an accessible place, forming an escape plan, and knowing how to get everyone out of the home safely. But what about minimizing the damage that a fire can cause to your property?
In the event of a fire, your first priority will be to get everyone out of the house safely, then, if the fire is a large one, you will have to stand helplessly and watch as you wait for firefighters to arrive.
By installing a fire sprinkler system, you can be calmer, knowing that as you wait, the flames are being contained, and the damage is minimized.
Benefits of Installing A Fire Sprinkler System
By asking our specialists to install a fire sprinkler system in your home, you can be confident that it will save you money by minimizing property damage, and will dramatically increase the chances of surviving a fire. Installing a fire sprinkler system can also decrease your homeowner’s insurance premiums.
Many individuals cringe at the thought of installing fire sprinklers because they fear that these are obtrusive and ugly. The truth is that they can be very unobtrusive, and even decorative.
Others avoid installing these for fear of a burnt dinner setting of the sprinkler system. This is not how a fire sprinkler system works, though. The sprinkler is not sensitive to smoke, it is sensitive to heat, so it won’t go off like a smoke detector while your cooking.
Common Features of A Fire Sprinkler System
There are two types of sprinkler systems you can choose from. There are stand-alone systems and multi-use systems. Though slightly different, both types of systems have three common features.
- The Sprinkler Heads
- Water Supply to the Sprinklers
- Command SystemThe first feature is individual sprinkler heads. These are designed to detect the heat of flames in order to activate. Often, one sprinkler per room is more than enough to contain a fire’s blaze.
These sprinkler heads are connected to either your home’s existing plumbing (known as a multi-use system) or has its own piping linked to a reservoir of water (a stand-alone system).
The network of sprinklers and the pipes that supply water to them can be controlled from a central command system. These systems can trigger an alarm while some will even alert your fire department for you if the system is activated. An extremely helpful feature if you are away for the day.
