We’ve talked before about the importance of having smoke alarms and fire extinguishers throughout your home or business. There’s another crucial tool that could prove vitally important in the fight against home and business fires: fire sprinklers.
In this issue, we’ll talk about why it makes sense to outfit your home or business with fire sprinklers, what they cost and how effective they can be.
WHY SHOULD I HAVE A FIRE SPRINKLER IN MY HOME OR BUSINESS?
They act fast! In fact, a fire sprinkler system can control and even extinguish a fire before the fire department has a chance to respond. This is even more true for rural communities that rely upon volunteer firefighters.
If your home or business was built after 2011, you’ve already got a sprinkler system in place, thanks to the passing of the California Building Standards Code.
FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEMS ARE EXPENSIVE, RIGHT?
Wrong! The cost of installing fire sprinklers in your home is about $1.35 per square foot to be sprinkled.
WON’T ALL THE SPRINKLERS GO OFF AT ONCE?
No. The sprinklers are actually designed to activate early in a real fire as they respond to heat rather than smoke.
Further, each sprinkler will only react to fire conditions in its zone, and the water used by a sprinkler to put out a fire is far less than what would be used if the fire department responded to your fire.
