Let’s be honest here the device that we are bringing under consideration today sure has some worth. I mean a house without a smoke alarm is like a house without a warranty but what if it doesn’t work properly? Well! A Smoke alarm with a low powered battery or some kind of fault will emit a short yet high-pitched warning sound. But today we are flashing upon the common reasons for the irregularity that is caused in the normal functioning of a fire alarm. Here are some of the seeds, why it might be teasing you. So when it happens next time you are able to tackle with or at least get to the root of the issue.

Smoke detector placement:

Stuck in a situation where the smoke is literally choking you still it is not enough to trigger the alarm to ring? Well, that is a bad signal resonating clear defects in your device and you better get it right. But there is a time when it works the opposite way, here it is the fault of the electrician who was responsible for installing the alarm for you. If it is installed 10 feet away from a burning thing like a stove or oven then you are busted because that is the only reason causing the false functioning of your poor device. Installing your smoke detectors beside a window or any open area is also a common reason that causes nuisance alarms. You see the place that you choose for the installation really matters. So next time when you ping up an electrician try going for a reliable one.

Overcooking food:

Sometimes you are stuck with the most irritating issues of fire alarms and that is their hypersensitivity to smoke. Once I had to deal with a similar situation and it literally went off my nerves. They are there to taunt you every time you slightly overcook your food. If you double-checked the fact that it is installed 10 feet away from your cooking area then you have got to adjust its sensitivity or call a pro to do that for you.

High humidity:

Here is a fun fact for you, confusions are not something associated with humans. Machines like these alarms get confused too! High humidity carries with it dense moisture particles that your smoke detecting machine may get confused with considering it nothing more than smoke. When things go to their extreme air is dense enough to scatter the light beam of a photoelectric sensor and get the alarm going without any fire alert. The same goes the case while dealing with steaming areas like your bathroom so that means you do need some wits while installing these alarms. So those were a few quick reasons why your fire alarm was behaving as it wasn’t supposed to do. The question is what to do when you are stuck with faults like this? You would be thinking to go DIY stuff again right? Well if you ask me, you shouldn’t! And why would you if you have a reliable service on your hand, who know where to fix and set the alarm so it never irritates you again.
