Smoke Detectors

According to the U.S. Fire Administration, your smoke detector should be replaced after 10 years. Smoke detectors should be inside and outside each bedroom and sleeping area and on every level of the home. 

Smoke-Alarm Batteries

Don’t forget to replace the batteries every six months. A good time to remember to replace the batteries is when we change the clock in the spring and fall.

Air Conditioners

Generally, air conditioners should last about 10 years, maybe even up to 15 depending on the weather elements they are in.
