Bathroom Heater Light Fan Installation

Bring some bliss to your bathroom by bringing warmth and light to the cold winter mornings.

The main advantage of a bathroom heater light is that it comes grouped with a standard light and an exhaust fan. This provides adequate ventilation to expel humid air before It condenses into moisture, which could result in mildew and even structural rot.

Smoke Alarms

About two-thirds of home fire deaths occur in homes with no smoke alarms or smoke alarms which don’t work. Critical for the early detection of a fire or smoke in your home is the investment in a smoke alarm and often is the difference between life and death.

Smoke and deadly gases tend to spread farther and faster than heat when a fire occurs, this is one reason why people die from smoke inhalation of toxic gases rather than from burns.

The majority of fatal fires occur when families are asleep because occupants are unaware of the fire until there is not adequate time to get out of the house.

Fines of up to $750 apply if alarms are not installed. The type of smoke alarm you require depends on when you purchased your home or the age of your home
