When you are a business owner, one of the most important things to you is the safety and wellbeing of your staff members. One hazard to people’s safety is fires, and they can pop up without warning. For this reason, you need a fire alarm system that can alert people of fire emergencies the moment they happen, which gives people as much time as possible to respond to the fire and escape.
A big problem is when a fire alarm doesn’t work because people won’t be notified of the impending dangers that fire poses. That’s why it’s important to know when your alarm system is in need of replacing. Here are signs that it’s time for you to replace your fire alarm system.
You Have to Repair Your Fire Alarm System Frequently
All pieces of technology need repairs from time to time, but you shouldn’t have to make repairs too often. If you find yourself repairing your fire alarm system very frequently, it’s likely safer and easier for you to replace your system altogether. This is an even better idea if you’re having trouble finding the necessary components to repair whatever alarm system you currently have.
Your Fire Alarm System is Old
A new fire alarm system will typically last you for around 15 years with proper care. If your system is getting to around that age, it’s not a good idea to press your luck and try to get extra years out of it. There is a great risk that comes with trying to use old fire alarm systems because they might not work as well as newer ones. Older systems are also not as likely to abide by state and local building codes.
If you get a new system, you keep your building safer, and you’re more likely to be in compliance with the rules and regulations in your area.
You Experience Many False Alarms
Nobody enjoys dealing with false alarms, and they’re more common in fire alarm systems that don’t function as well anymore. By getting a replacement system, you won’t have to worry about these alarms anymore. That way, you’ll only get alarms during true emergencies.
