How long does a smoke detector last?


Safety is priority when it comes to your home, which is why professionals recommend replacing smoke detector batteries on an annual basis. But did you know, the National Fire Protection Association also recommends homeowners replace their smoke detectors every 10 years.


On average, the typical American family moves into a different home every seven years. If you have "inherited" smoke detectors with the purchase of a home, please replace them. It's impossible to verify the age and condition of the unit.


Even with a new battery and the test button working properly, the unit is old enough to be considered past its useful life and could fail at any time. For more information on fire prevention and safety tips, visit the National Fire Protection website.
