It is recommended that we replace our smoke alarms every 10 years as the internal sensors may be contaminated with dust, dirt and pollutants by then. So when was the last time you replaced yours? If it’s been more than 10 years, consider purchaing the First Alert Photoelectric Fire and Smoke Alarms the next time you’re at Costco.
These smoke and fire alarms have photoelectric sensors which can effectively detect smoke particles commonly produced by smoldering fires. There’s another type of smoke sensing technology called Ionization Technology which are generally more sensitive than photoelectric technology at sensing small particles but may also lead to more false alarms.
Experts actually recommend the use of both types of technology on each level and in every bedroom of our homes.
The First Alert Photoelectric Fire and Smoke Alarms also feature:
– Front loading battery door for easy battery replacement
– Mute/Test Button
– Easy to Install
– Ideal for Cooking Areas
– Loud 85 dB Alarm

The First Alert Photoelectric Fire and Smoke Alarms are available in a 2-pack set and is priced at $22.79.
