As a homeowner, protecting your home against fire damage is a priority. If your home was built without a residential sprinkler system, it may be time to consider this life-saving option. Consulting with a fire sprinkler contractor may be crucial to the safe keeping of your home.
A professional, licensed contractor will work with a homeowner in determining system options.
A fact to consider regarding the installation of a sprinkler system is that of all fire-related deaths, 80 percent occur in a home blaze. While smoke detectors are a requirement in a dwelling, by combining a residential sprinkler system with smoke detectors, the risk of fatality is cut significantly.
There is no question that a sprinkler system is critical in protecting property and lives.
In addition, if it is necessary for a fire department to use hoses to extinguish a house fire, the water damage to property caused by the hoses may be significant. On average, fire hoses use 2,935 gallons of water to put out a fire.
A residential sprinkler system uses under 300 gallons of water to control a fire, which is approximately 8 ½ times less than a fire hose. Consequently, using a sprinkler system could greatly reduce water damage to your home in the event of a house fire.
