What are the benefits of residential fire sprinklers?
Safer Fire Service
The risk for firefighters decreases when home sprinklers are in use because sprinklers reduce the intensity of the fire by dousing the flame earlier.
Fast Response to your Residence
Modern residential sprinklers are designed to respond to fire faster than commercial or industrial sprinkler systems, because they are more sensitive to heat.
Residential fire sprinklers are smaller and less conspicuous than commercial or industrial types. Some color variations are available and some can be installed flush with the ceiling.
Sprinkler systems exceed a 95 percent "fail-safe" status in laboratory testing. Sprinklers are individually activated only if there is a fire in which the heat escalates past that sprinkler’s trigger point.
Sprinklers can prevent devastating home damage by extinguishing flames quickly. Sprinklers can limit the damage caused by smoke and fire and are less damaging than water damage caused by firefighting hoses.
Installing a home sprinkler system in one that is under construction or being remodeled requires minimal extra piping and labor and greatly increases the safety of residents.
Low Water Requirement
Codes treat Residential fire sprinkler systems differently than commercial or industrial occupancies. Residential fire sprinkler systems have a much lower water demand.
Presently, fire sprinkler systems for single-family homes in our area cost approximately $1.00 per square foot of heated space. This is about the same as upgraded cabinets or carpet.
Lower Insurance Premiums
Many insurance companies offer discounts for homes protected with an automatic fire sprinkler system.
