Benefits of Smoke Detectors
Thousands of people sustain serious injuries or death because of fires, and installing smoke detectors reduces the risk of injuries during a fire. Smoke detectors should be installed on every level of the home, including in the kitchen, bedrooms, basement, and patio.
Benefits of smoke detectors include:
- Help everyone evacuate safely
- Decrease risk of fire damage
- 24/7 protection
- Smart detectors can send out alerts
Smoke alarms work around the clock to detect gases, smoke, and rapid increase in temperature, and once the sensor is triggered, a loud horn will sound to alert everyone in the home. Smart smoke detectors can send alerts to the fire department and emergency contacts through their app immediately after the sensor is triggered.
There are two types of smoke detectors commonly used in homes, including an ionization alarm that ionizes the air between two electrically charged plates and activates the alarm with smoke that disrupts the flow of ions. Photoelectric alarms use a light source and sensor that triggers when smoke reflects the light onto the sensor. We can install each type of alarm and combination alarms that use both technologies for the best protection. Laughlin Electric wants to keep our community safe with the best smoke and CO detectors in Santa Barbara.

Why Use CO Detectors?
CO stands for carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless gas that can cause severe illness and death at high levels. CO may enter your home through improperly installed, poorly maintained, or unauthorized use of fuel-burning appliances, including fireplaces, stoves, or idling cars in garages. As a general rule, there should be one carbon monoxide alarm on each floor and more alarms in areas like a kitchen or garage where appliances could be leaking.
Carbon monoxide is lighter than air and will sink to the ground when released. We will install your detector about five feet above the floor on a wall, but not right next to a fireplace or appliance.
CO detectors can save lives, and it’s vital to notice the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, including:
- Dull headache
- Nausea & vomiting
- Blurred vision
- Shortness of breath
