This should be easy–maybe I’m over thinking it, maybe not.
Let me preface by saying I currently have smoke detectors in my house, but they were here when I moved in six years ago and who knows how old they are. I’m looking to replace them. I’ve been doing some research (but obviously not enough) and am just getting overwhelmed.
Apparently, there’s a difference between Ionization and Photoelectric Smoke Alarms…and I’m not sure which to go with. I need ones that are NOT hardwired.
Anyone replaced smoke detectors recently? Any recommendations?
All the reviews I can find are crap like, “The package was so easy to open and it was so easy to install it on the wall with the two screws–five stars!” I’m more interested in, did it go off when it should have? “Died in fire, detector never went off, one star.”
