What type of fire alarm should I have for my house?
A hard-wired alarm with battery back-up is best. These alarms are wired directly into the house electrical system so the homeowner doesn’t need to remember to change the batteries regularly. However, there is a battery back-up in case of power failure which does need to be checked periodically.
