Designing a dream home is never easy. The sheer number of decisions one has to make about the materials, colours and decor is daunting – fun, but daunting. White oak or walnut? Contemporary or classic? Modern or mid-century? It’s easy to get caught up in those details. But as you research, compare and shop around, a word of warning: don’t forget that your home has to be safe, too.

According to the Canadian National Fire Information Database, 80 per cent of fire deaths occur in homes without working smoke alarms – and in many of these cases, missing batteries are to blame. The risk of fatality gets cut in half in homes with working smoke alarms. Meanwhile, 300 Canadians die each year from carbon monoxide poisoning, while it’s estimated that a third of Canadian homes don’t have any form of carbon monoxide detection. Just like flooring and furniture, your home needs working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms – on every level and in every bedroom. Just like flooring and furniture, you’ll use them every day, for 24/7 protection.

Enter First Alert. First Alert’s industry-leading 10-Year Sealed Battery Combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm is designed to provide reliable protection. Featuring a 10-year sealed battery, the alarm will last for a decade without need for battery replacements, ensuring your home’s safety won’t lapse. It provides convenient peace of mind and is easy to test using the simple push button. Plus, a battery that won’t run low any time soon means no more of that irksome chirping when conventional alarms run low on power.
