Protect Your Home and Family With a Fire Sprinkler System

June 17, 2014

For anyone building a house, safety should be one of your major concerns. Nobody can predict what will happen in life, and fires can break out at any time, sometimes without you even realizing it. One way of protecting your home and family is by installing a fire sprinkler system.

A fire sprinkler system sprays water on the entire radius around it and is usually comprised of several sprinkler heads connected to a pipe. Fire sprinkler heads are often installed in areas where a fire is most likely to break out, as well as in floor ducts, ceilings, and enclosed roof spaces.

Here are several reasons why you should consider installing a fire sprinkler system:

  1. Safety – This is clearly the number one benefit of having a fire sprinkler system installed. The sprinklers are instantly activated and may extinguish the fire completely by the time the local fire department arrives. This will also help ease any worry of problems while away from home.
  2. Discounted insurance rates – Insurance companies offer a sizable discount to homeowners who install a fire sprinkler system in their home.
  3. Affordability – The cost to install a fire sprinkler system is about $1.00 to $1.50 per square foot in the construction of new homes. Fire sprinkler systems have low maintenance costs and low water requirements.
  4. Individual sprinkler activation – Fire sprinklers activate on an individual basis. The nearest sprinkler to the fire will be the only one to activate, which minimizes water requirements and reduces water-related property damage.
  5. Easy to maintain – A fire sprinkler system only needs to be maintained about once a year to make sure that there is nothing obstructing the sensor or the sprinkler.
