Valentine's Day created more star-struck lovers with flickering candles and burning passions so Fire Protection Online introduce their comprehensive range of Kidde smoke alarms at rock-bottom prices.
Smoldering looks across a candle-lit table and snuggling up with your loved one in front of a fire are not just for Valentine's Day. And, in the heat of the moment, it's all too easy to forget that low-burning candle, or forgotten dinner in the oven. A smoke detector gives vital early warning of smoke or flames in the home, while the occupants may be distracted…
Homeowners who protect their homes with fire alarms increase their chances of survival in a house fire by a massive 90%, but only if their smoke alarms are working properly. A badly situated smoke alarm, or one with a dead battery, will not sound the alarm when needed, losing the house occupants those vital minutes of warning to make their escape from choking smoke and flames.
To fully protect the home, Jason Miller of Fire Protection Online recommends fitting three different types of smoke alarms.
"People think all smoke alarms are the same - they're not! An ionisation alarm is ideal for areas where flames might take hold easily, such as furniture in your lounge, or pop one on your landing ceiling near bedrooms. An optical alarm will detect slow smouldering fires more quickly, making them the natural choice for hallways, bedrooms and home offices.
"Finally, neither of these smoke detectors works well in a steamy or smoky kitchen. If you're planning to cook a romantic meal and you're normally a stranger in the kitchen, make sure you have put up a Kidde heat alarm beforehand, just in case!"
Fire Protection Online offers a full range of 230V mains-operated smoke detectors with battery backup. Also available, alongside the standard battery-operated versions, are the 'put up and forget' Kidde battery 10-year battery alarms, ideal for older properties or renovation projects where hard-wiring is not an option.
Kidde manufacture over 30 million smoke detectors and alarms. Normally, such a quality brand name carries a price premium, but http://www.FireProtectionOnline.co.uk offers all Kidde smoke alarms at generous discounts, with up to 31% off list price.
As Jason says; "Perhaps this year's 'must-have' gift should be a smoke alarm. It certainly shows you care - more so than a bunch of flowers or a box of chocolates - and you'll also be saving up to 31%. Just don't get too hot under the collar or they might go off at the wrong moment!"
