One of our smoke detectors started doing the "battery low" beep a couple nights ago. After trying to make sure the house wasn't burning down, I pulled the battery and went back to bed.
Since I had to do one; I decided to replace all the 9Vs in all my smoke detectors. I discovered that TWO of my Kiddie Model 0946 Ionization Smoke Alarm are DEAD. I shot some compressed air in it, per manufacturer instructions, and tried multiple new-out-of-the-package 9Vs. They are listed for 10 years and were made in 2006 (November 15, according to the sticker).
So, TEST YOUR DETECTORS.
Thanks for share your personal experience here.
Well as per my experience, i always check the smoke detectors at a regular basis. So if i found any problem in it than i quickly changed that equipment.
So i want to say all people must check their Smoke Detector at regular time intervals.
