Home Sprinkler Systems for North and South Carolina
There are many misconceptions about home sprinkler systems, in spite of the fact that residential sprinkler systems can save your life, your property, and your loved ones. Many homeowners fear that the system can misfire and destroy their belongings and property, or that a localized fire will set off the entire system.
Both of these worries are incorrect. Modern residential sprinkler systems are designed so that only the sprinkler nearest the fire will activate – this ensures that the fire will be put out with minimal damage to your property while extinguishing the fire in half the time it would take the fire department to arrive.
While the movies might show building-wide sprinkler systems going off at the drop of a hat, the actual chances of a sprinkler head misfiring are close to one in 16 million. As residential sprinkler systems only activate locally, the chances of the entire system of sprinkler heads going off at the same time are incalculably rare.
The Phoenix Fire Protection team has the skills and experience to design and install a home fire protection sprinkler system that will protect your property and the lives of you and your loved ones in the event of a home fire.
The Truth about Residential Fires
When a fire occurs in your home, you, your family, and your pets have less than three minutes to escape – 85% of fire deaths that occur in the US happen in the home. A fire or smoke alarm reduces the risk of dying by 30%. An automatic home sprinkler system reduces the risk of fire death by 80% and reduces property loss 70%.
The sprinkler system, in addition to extinguishing fires locally, is powerful enough to extinguish fires in about a minute and 30 seconds – that’s half the average time it would take for the fire department to arrive after they’ve been called. Regardless of the data that shows how much safer your home is when a residential sprinkler system has been installed, less than 5% of homes in the US have sprinkler systems.
The truth is clear – home sprinkler systems save lives and property while reducing recovery costs. In fact, many home insurance companies offer discounts to policyholders who have a residential fire sprinkler system installed.
