Where There’s Smoke, There’s Fire | Corona, CA

Fire Sprinklers SystemsPicture it…It’s Friday night and you are having a night in with friends. You pop a couple of pizzas in the oven, crack open the beverages and start to catch up with everyone. After a while, someone notices there seems to be smoke in the air but you’re having such a great time, you chalk it up to the pizza and go back to socializing. Then all of a sudden, your living room begins to fill with smoke. You call the fire department and evacuate the premises. It is scary, quite the surprise and more of a wake-up call than you would care to admit. Because you find out that the fire was started not by pizza in the oven, but a pillow that caught on fire from a nearby candle.

Many times, a tragedy can be initiated by our own carelessness. One way we can prepare for these flamed accidents is to equip your home with fire extinguishers, smoke alarms and even fire sprinklers. Think sprinklers is a bit over the top? If a fire sprinkler system was available, that sprinkler system could quickly take care of the fire, even before firefighters arrive. Not only will it minimize both fire and water damages but ensure no one was injured. With fire sprinklers going off and extinguishing the fire, this story could prevent a tragic ending. Don’t hesitate when it comes to fire protection – residential sprinkler systems can save lives. Make a call to CJ Suppression for more information about residential fire sprinkler systems.

Fire Sprinklers in the Home? Find Out Why | Corona, CA

When we think of fire sprinklers, we generally don’t assimilate it with our home. Thought of as something that is designed for businesses and factories, fire sprinklers aren’t a concern for many homeowners. But should they be? Let’s take a look at their advantages – you may reconsider your decision:

Can’t stop the blaze. As smart as smoke alarms are these days, they can’t extinguish fire. Sprinklers do and continue to do so as you and your family run for safety. Also, by stopping the fire as soon as it starts, sprinklers can prevent, or at least reduce, the amount of property damage.

Not activated by smoke. Your fire alarm going off because of burned toast and a snuffed candle certainly can be annoying. With sprinklers, you don’t have to worry about that because they are activated via heat, not smoke.

Instant help. Sprinklers will activate within a minute – a whole lot less time than it takes for your local firefighters to get to your home. Also, sprinklers can help slow down the fire and minimize the damage done until the firefighters arrive to completely douse the fire.

Cost-effective. Firefighters use an average of 2,935 gallons to extinguish your regular residential fire. That’s many times more than the 341 gallons of water used by sprinklers on average.

Insurance-friendly. Your insurance provider may lower your premiums thanks to your sprinkler system. Be sure to contact your home insurance provider to know if this applies to you.

The costs of having sprinklers installed far outweigh the costs of losing a huge part of your house. In some cases, families lose their entire homes because of residential fires. Don’t let that happen to your family by having sprinklers installed.
