My smoke alarm keeps going off....When do I replace the batteries in my smoke detectors…?
If the alarm is going off it could be time to change the batteries. Dust can also cause them to chirp. Change the batteries then blow the detector or vacuum it. If the alarm still sounds, you will need to contact an electrician.
Alarms should be checked every month to make sure they are working. Once a year plan to change the batteries and dust the detectors. Smoke detectors over 10 years old should be replaced.
