CHECK YOUR SMOKE AND CO ALARMS AND CHANGE THE BATTERIES!
Fall has arrived and with the change in seasons comes a very important task- checking your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and changing batteries.
The newest New York State Code Requirements state that for new construction and additions, hard wired units are required. However, the requirements for existing construction are different. Although, a great addition to any home, any unit can be faulty. Be sure to check all smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms monthly. Simply looking for the blinking light is not always enough. As with any electronic device, some options may not be working. Be sure to press the test button on all units at least once a month to ensure that the tones on the detectors and alarms are working. Better safe than sorry! A building permit is required for the installation of solid fuel units and chimneys. The solid fuel building permit application can found in the previous section. Please call our office at 585-786-8820, option 1 if you have any questions.
