Benefits of Smoke Detectors
Did you know that most fire deaths are not from the fire itself but from smoke inhalation? Heavy smoke can also block an escape route. A smoke detector is the best way to possibly save the lives of you and your family when a fire breaks out.
Having a working smoke detector in your home can help with:
- Peace of mind regarding your home and family
- Reducing the risk of smoke inhalation
- Reducing the spread and severity of a home fire
Along with smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors are also a necessity within your home. Carbon monoxide detectors are the only way to detect when a dangerous amount of carbon monoxide is present and eliminates the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
The professionals at AJ’s Electrical are able to install smoke and carbon monoxide combination detectors, to ensure your home is always protected against both of these safety concerns with the most efficiency.
Advances in technology are progressively making smoke detectors safer. For example, talking alarms allow you to program in the location of the fire and tell you its location. This allows you to choose the fastest and safest evacuation route. Wi-Fi-enabled units and smart device apps allow you to monitor your home from anywhere. You can check the detector’s status, get alarm notifications, and even shut off a false alarm.
If you have a separate suite within your home, our team is able to provide interconnected photoelectric smoke detectors. This will help alert you to the smoke situation sooner, and therefore reduce the risk of the fire spreading and causing irreparable damage.
Replacement is Required After 10 Years
Advances in smoke detector technology aren’t the only reason to upgrade. Smoke detectors have a working life of 10 years. After that, they need to be replaced. Not sure how old your smoke detectors are? If you’re in doubt, replace them.
At AJ’s Electrical, our smoke detectors have a 10 year battery backup. This will ensure your smoke detector is in good working condition for the duration of its life until replacement. It is critical to replace your smoke detector after its 10 year lifespan.
Recent building codes require a home has a smoke detector in each bedroom. The experts at AJ’s Electrical make it a priority to ensure your home is up to date on all recent codes and you’re made aware of additional recommendations. Regulations are put in place to protect you, your home, and your family.
Cost of Smoke Detectors
The amount of smoke detectors, along with the type and difficulty of installation will determine the overall price. Having an electrician hardwire a smoke detector into your home is relatively low in cost, and provides you with complete peace of mind. The expert team at AJ’s Electrical ensure top-quality work and have years of experience providing homes and families in the Lower Mainland with top tier service.

Needed an electrician to help me replace a thermostat and give me a quote on installing pot lights in two rooms, as the light switches are not connected to anything. The service was great and he discovered be could fix one of my rooms to have the light switch connected to an existing outlet which was included in the hour of work I paid for. Good service, arrived on time, provided advice and was friendly and prompt. Would recommend.
AJs has done electrical work for us a few times — installing light fixtures and sorting out wiring problems. Today Jason changed the puck lights in our kitchen from halogen to LED. Skilled and efficient. Always professional and cost-conscious.
This was the best experience with any trades company I have dealt with. Very good value, free estimate and work done professionally and efficiently. I recommend this company to everyone.

I was very impressed with the work AJ Electrical did for me. I really like their estimation services and hour the estimates include the estimated number of man-hours for your job. The work itself was highly efficient and professional. Their staff are also a pleasure to deal with (Darrian, Josh, and Kyle). I would highly recommend AJ Electrical and I will use them again in the future for future electrical jobs in my house.

Dealing with AJs was a great experience. From the moment of calling them about needing someone to install a 240V socket and talking to Darian. Darian was most helpful and explained everything and even managed to get our service done sooner then the 3 weeks it was originally scheduled for. Kyle the electrician was on time, professional and did the work quickly. Would recommend AJs to anyone needing Electrical work. Their price was reasonable, they were prompt and did the work well.
