Did you know that more than 80% of fire deaths occur within the home? That may look like a very scary, staggering statistic - but fortunately for you, there are home fire sprinkler system installations in Edmonton that are available to help extinguish fire and save lives. While sprinkler systems are typically associated with commercial or industrial buildings, it’s actually becoming more common to find sprinkler systems installed in apartments and homes. Because fire sprinkler systems respond quickly, they’re often able to extinguish a fire long before help can arrive at the scene. And if you’re worried about property damages caused by the water in the sprinkler system, rest assured that only the sprinkler system closest to the fire actually activates. Amptec Fire & Security offers a wide selection of reliable fire sprinkler systems for Edmonton homes and businesses.
While hydrants are one fire protection element that you must definitely consider having around your premises, this may not always be enough. In a fire, every millisecond counts - and the time it would take for a firetruck to reach your premises may prove to be fatal for everyone around. Our sprinkler system installation in Edmonton can prove to be crucial to save lives but also your property, documents and other important possessions. Apart from fire safety, you must also ensure that your building is up to the latest safety standards as well.
How Much Do Sprinkler Systems Cost?
The costs associated with installing a sprinkler system will vary, but it’s usually significantly less than upgrading your carpets, paving a driveway or installing a Whirlpool bath. Plus it can actually help you reduce your homeowner’s insurance premium. It’s estimated that property losses are about 85% less in homes with sprinkler systems when compared to those without them. While many may think a smoke detector is sufficient protection for the home, many smoke detectors fail because the batteries are either dead or removed. From disasters that we have seen in the past, the question you may want to ask yourself is, can you cannot afford not to install a sprinkler system in your home. For sprinkler system installation in Edmonton, we are here for you.
Sprinkler System Maintenance Tips
It goes without saying that it’s essential to ensure your sprinkler system is maintained to ensure it’s functioning properly. Some maintenance tips are:
Remember to lock all sprinkler control valves. This ensures nobody can close or tamper with a valve without your authorization.
Placing effective visual communication (signs) around your sprinkler system can go a long way in preventing people from closing the valves.
Being aware of the National Fire Protection Agency’s 25 standard also allows you to maintain the valves, pump units and sprinklers according to the established requirements.
If you have had a sprinkler system installation in Edmonton, then you must always check to make sure nothing is blocking the sprinkler system, including paint, which could prevent water from coming out.
Be sure to have your system winterized to avoid freezing pipes during the winter.
