Smoke Detectors:

Smoke Detectors are great safety devices, but occasionally a smoke detector will start “chirping” or worse, give out a non-stop alarm for no reason. Here’s a tip on what to do if this happens to you.

If it’s a battery-powered smoke detector, take out the battery.

If it’s a 120 Volt powered smoke detector, turn off your circuit breakers one by one until the noise stops.

Then turn on all the circuit breakers again except the one controlling the smoke detector. You will then need to replace the 120 Volt smoke detector or if it is a battery powered smoke detector, replace the battery.
