Which Smoke Detector Do I Need?
There are two general types of smoke detectors to choose from.
- Ionization Smoke Detectors: These devices respond faster to "fast-flame" fires. When a fire abruptly breaks out in your home and spreads rapidly, this is the type of smoke detector you need. A small amount of radioactive material ionizes the air in the sensing chamber, and smoke entering the chamber reduces conductivity. This sets off the alarm.
- Photoelectric Smoke Detectors: The other type of fire you may encounter in your home is the slow-building, smoldering fire. Photoelectric smoke detectors are quicker at sensing this type of fire. They have an LED and a light sensor in them, and smoke entering the chamber causes the light to scatter. When the sensor sees this happening, it sounds the alarm.
You Need CO Detectors, Too
You also need carbon monoxide detectors. CO is a natural byproduct of fuel combustion. It is naturally free of odor, color, and taste, so a specialized CO detector is your only line of defense against CO poisoning.
If you ever exhibit lightheadedness, confusion, or flu-like symptoms without explanation, get out of the house and contact the appropriate authorities. This could be the result of CO poisoning. In high enough concentrations, it can be fatal.
